From the NAMM PR Team, this was heard on the floor today:
After the NAMM U Breakfast of Champions:

“Graham Nash was breathing the spirit of NAMM and importance of music education, the importance of keeping music in schools fresh. And when St. Vincent talked about being comfortable with holding a guitar, it really resonated with me as a former guitar teacher.”
- Anthony Cutietta, San Diego Music Studios, San Marcos, CA


“The music is always the most important part of our relationship (speaking about CSNY). It’s the essence of what we do. Nothing ever came before that. We never lost sight of the power we had through music.”
"My parents encouraged my passion for music and that’s why I’m here today. Children who have music are less likely to bully, join gangs and do better in school.”
- Graham Nash, recipient of the 2016 NAMM Music for Life Award


“This is a great show. We’re in an awesome location this year and we're really putting it to use. We recently introduced a new product and it’s received a ton of attention. It's a completely new market for us, so it’s an exciting time to be at the NAMM Show.”
 - Carl Himmelman, Apogee Electronics, Santa Monica, CA
