NAMM January 2017 Report: It was another productive year at NAMM Show 2017 with my Zendrum in tow. Special 'Thank You's to Sir John Spinelli of Seminole Music & Sound for the on-going sponsorship and great hang, David Haney of Zendrum Corporation for his truly unique and game-changing instrument. A fond shout-out to some world class musicians and friends who I shared performances with throughout: Justino Lee Walker, Jalon King,Thomas Griggs, and Miami's Harry D. Bayron and the talented Rogue Theory Band. I'm also looking forward to working with my new friends at Galaxy Audio (Bacheus Jabara), RolandUSA (Ed Diaz, Chris Aggz Agazaryan), Wood Violins, Electra Guitars, Partybag Audio, and the gentlemen at Baretone Audio in the near future. Now, time to get back to the music at hand! See you next year everyone.

January 2017 : I'll be heading back to The NAMM Show in Anaheim this month! Flight, and rental car booked. While there, I'll be meeting with some of the music industry's top movers and shakers. Special thanks to my sponsor and favorite local music store, Seminole Music & Sound. The place where I bought my first pro drum set as a kid, and where it all started. Follow the adventure on Instagram at #rickondrums starting Jan 21st..
