TASCAM has invited Bruce Wawrzyniak to attend the NAMM show in California next month to record interviews for “Now Hear This Entertainment” at their booth.  The event takes place January 19-22, 2017, at the Anaheim Convention Center.  NAMM is the National Association of Music Merchants.

“This is exciting,” Wawrzyniak said.  “It’s a great opportunity for the show.  Even though Now Hear This Entertainment has listeners in 124 countries around the world, there’s a tremendous volume of people that come through the NAMM show who are the target audience for NHTE.  I’m very grateful to TASCAM for the invitation and the opportunity to come together with them at this event.  I look forward to contributing to their presence at the NAMM show.”

Wawrzyniak recently became a user of TASCAM’s MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42, having been able to record interviews, as a result, on-site at the 8th Pensacola Beach (Florida) Songwriters Festival, the 32nd Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival (in Alabama), and, as seen in the photo below, a podcasting event in, coincidentally, Anaheim.  Along the way he was featured in this article that was published on the TASCAM website.

In addition to recording interviews at the January event, Wawrzyniak will be an interviewee, with TASCAM planning to mobilize a film crew at the NAMM show to produce a video about NHTE and its host.

“Having Bruce partner with us for NAMM is a natural,” said Eric Larsen, Director of Marketing for TASCAM.  “With the MiNiSTUDIO we are transforming podcasting in the same way that the TASCAM Portastudio revolutionized home recording.  Bruce’s expertise in podcasting and focus on music – and musicians – make him the ideal guest to invite to the party.”

A massive event boasting 100 thousand attendees over four days, plus 1,700 exhibitors, NAMM takes place twice a year, with the summer edition set for July in Nashville.
