Well, for people who work in and around the recording industry, the third weekend of January each year could only mean one thing: the annual pilgrimage to Anaheim California for the NAMM Show. NAMM stands for National Association of Music Merchants, and their annual trade show brings together music equipment manufacturers, publishers and music professionals to meet up, hang out and check out all the latest gear and releases for the coming year. With the COVID19 pandemic, like many other trade shows, NAMM has gone virtual in 2021 – but, eventually.. it will be back, better than ever.
So, in celebration of the NAMM show, this episode of the East Main podcast features part of Brian Brodeur’s conversation with musician, composer, producer – Mike Keneally.
Mike is known for his work with Frank Zappa, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Andy Partridge (XTC), Kevin Gilbert, Scott Schorr (MFTJ), Devin Townsend and more. Mike’s a great guy and a fabulous musician, and the the NAMM show has always been an annual opportunity for Brian to hang with Mike, see him perform, and catch up on all of his latest projects ~ but that won’t be happening this year, so this episode of the East Main Podcast features a portion of Brian’s conversation from April of 2020 with Mike Keneally.
