Take It To 11

Written by The Lennon Bus

 

We are currently driving from North Hollywood to Anaheim for the NAMM Show . It’s a short drive relative to what the year has in store but it’s enough to shake the dust off the butterflies in our bellies and get us ready to Take It To 11.

On the books NAMM is a trade-show that allows manufactures, vendors, buyers, musicians, and fans to come together to see what the New Year has brought in terms of Music Technology. But let us remember what those tools are used for. Some have knobs. Some have switches. Some have levers. Others are faders. Some are touch screen. Some have cables. Some are wireless. Some are loud. And others silent. There will be many different. tools, tech, and toys we will immerse ourselves in for the few days, but they all serve one goal - capturing dreams. Maybe you prefer to let your ideas come out with just an acoustic guitar or maybe a bumping sub in a club, either way you will find it this week at NAMM. And maybe you won’t be able to make it to NAMM this week but that doesn’t mean you can’t join us in Taking It To 11.

So this year whether you are in a band or a solo act, a beginner or a veteran, classically trained or garage rocked, whatever it is you do that makes you you take it one step further this year.

Take It To 11.
