Anaheim, CA (January 19, 2007)–Pity those poor souls at the NAMM Show this week; all that checking out new gear, previewing software, gawking at folks who didn’t get the memo that spandex and big hair are over…it’s exhausting. To give those NAMMers a break, Sennheiser’s 9th Annual Dealer Appreciation Party–featuring Robert Randolph & the Family Band, with OK Go–is open to all NAMM attendees tonight (Friday, January 19) at The House of Blues in Downtown Disney. There’s free food, cocktails and entertainment, so it’s a good deal all around, provided one stops by the Sennheiser booth (#6579) to ask for an invitation/pass.
OK GoFirst on the bill is Grammy-nominated OK Go, the Chicago-based power pop act that took the world by storm last year with that viral video. You know, the treadmill dance? (If you haven’t seen it, shame on you. Take a moment to see it HERE. It’s ok, we’ll wait. See, wasn’t that amazing?) While they know how to cut a rug…er, treadmill, they also put on a energetic show–and what do you know? OK Go use a stage full of Sennheiser Evolution Series wired and wireless microphones along with Sennheiser IEM systems–the very same microphones with which they tour.
Robert RandolphIf somehow that’s not enough (my, aren’t we picky today), well then, there’s also the talents of steel guitarist, songwriter Robert Randolph, who Rolling Stone named as one the 100 greatest guitarists of all time. He’s performed with everyone–John Medeski and the North Mississippi All-Stars, Dave Matthews, Ozzy Osbourne, Ringo Starr, Buddy Guy, Santana and Eric Clapton. Together with his Sennheiser Evolution 935 microphone and his Family Band, featuring his cousins Danyell Morgan and Marcus Randolph on bass and drums, respectively, and keyboardist, Jason Crosby, he’ll have you dancing to blues, funk, go-go, and even country.
