Yamaha All-Star Concert @ The NAMM Show – 01/17/2020
On Friday, January 17 Yamaha presented one of the premier events of The NAMM Show, the “Yamaha All-Star Concert on the Grand 2020,” a multi-artist, multimedia spectacular for all NAMM attendees. Thousands of music industry guests gathered outside of the convention center to see the mystery artists that Yamaha promised to deliver. The company does not announce the lineups for these star-studded shows, so the anticipation for who will appear on stage builds steadily throughout the day. This year the headline performers turned out to be the legendary R&B group Earth Wind and Fire, and singer-songwriter Kenny Loggins, along with a who’s who of other talented musicians like Verbal Ase, Avery Sunshine, Talkbox, Shelea, and emcee Sinbad all backed by an incredible All Star band led by bassist Nathan East.
The 2020 Yamaha All-Star Concert on the Grand was another amazing night of live music. The packed crowd in the courtyard of the convention center blissfully danced the night away and enjoyed all of the amazing music the Yamaha artists had to offer. The event serves as not only a demo for the wonderful musical equipment Yamaha produces, but also showcases the diversity and talent of all of the artists that use their tools to create beautiful music for all to enjoy.
