Legendary drummer Gary Novak recently performed at Seattle’s Jazz Alley with Robben Ford. I thought this was a great opportunity to not only catch a great show, but also to schmooze. A big part of success in this industry is the art of the schmooze. Perhaps I’ll do another post on that later. Anyhow, Gary is a new BEHRINGER endorser, and networking with him has opened up endorsement talks with Robben, Jimmy Haslip and Mike Landau.
An old childhood friend of mine, Gary Novak is one of the best drummers in the business. He has had the tremendous fortune to work with Chick Corea, Alanis Morrisette, Bob Berg and countless others. Joining me for the concert was my wife Laurie, KJ Sawka (Another one of our endorsers) and his fiancé Corianne. (That’s Gary in the middle.) Gary has been using a new XENYX USB mixer to dial in his in-ear monitor mixes during performances.
Gary introduced us to Robben, who is of course, absolutely exceptional. We also got a chance to speak with bassist Jimmy Haslip and guitarist Mike Landau regarding BEHRINGER and BUGERA. We are looking forward to BEHRINGER reviews from each of them!
More on these relationships as they develop!
