NAMM 2020

Always a treat to see Danny Harvey and Annie Marie Lewis perform each year a the Prestige Guitars booth! No line was too long to wait in to meet guitar goddess Lita Ford and Jerry Cantrell. The holy grail of swag was the Gretsch bag in my opinion. It was nice to see Jonathan Little of Little Labs and Manic Panic in the house!

Bummed that I missed Princess Frank who always puts on a raging show. But in time for New Elvis’ show that started out with orchestrated instrumental notes blended to create a total eargasm! Kaitlin Weichsel totally kills it on the bass, while singer Bila Mashini held the audience captive with his high octane vocals. Lots of energy, and the sax player the lead gal guitarist. Catch ’em at their next show.

A great listen out of Zak Starkey and Sharna “Sshh” Liguz‘s new label Trojan Jamaica. First release Red Gold Green & Blue is a compilation that features tracks with twists of reggae. “I Put a Spell on You” sung by Mykal Rose spills out a solid cool mellow down tempo in line with King Tubby and Lee Perry. Terrific rendition. “Bring it On Home” is bluesy with a bit of a rockabilly tint, Phylea Carley hits the mark with a hint of ska raggae on “Baby Please Don’t Go.” Love it. Blues and raggae in one bag!
