DJing For Vestax, NAMM 2012

Hello friends and fellow music lovers!! I recently had the opportunity to DJ for Vestax at the NAMM Show in Anaheim. This was great for two major reasons, I usually use my turntables, so, I had my first foray into DJing digital style since Vestax had wanted me to utilize their new midi controller, the VCI-400.

The second reason this was so great, was because the NAMM Show is the largest musical convention in the United Staes. Music lovers, producers, musicians, DJs, basically everyone that utilizes equipment come to view the new offerings from all suppliers both large and small. It's a place to not only view equipment, but to hear and see major music players demo products and give talks sharing their tips and tricks. The atmosphere is dizzying!! It's very electric, there are all kinds of sights and sounds. I definitely brought you with me every day and took pictures to share the vibe with you. This "convention" happens twice a year, and the only way to visit is via invitation. So you see, we all just got to go to the most exclusive all encompassing musical convention! Hope you enjoy, the Namm Show:
