JAM 4 this past weekend, September 19th and 20th, was one of the
best ever! Several hundred people came through the doors of Dexter
Music Center to partake in the clinics and contests we had going
on throughout the weekend. Though the rain hindered the outside portion
of our annual jam, we moved indoors and proceeded to throw down, DMC style. Special
thanks goes to all of the people who came by to visit us and the great
people of Gibson and Epiphone. Thanks
to 13th Floor for not only giving a fantastic blues
performance Saturday evening but for going above and beyond helping us
out behind the scenes during both days of DMC JAM 4. Thanks to
Hank Ettel for his help with the guitar challenge along with Quantum
Cables' Mike Torbet for running the sound.
to The Dusters for delivering a ripping, Delta Blues style
set to close out our 4th annual DMC JAM!

few highlights from our 4th annual DMC JAM.

World famous pick up specialist Hank Ettel was at DMC JAM 4 to
deliver his highly informative tone clinic. If you want to "sound"
your best, you need to have the right tone. No doubt that many of
the guitarists who attended Hank's clinic are well on their way to
sounding better than ever!
Shred master Bart Walsh made quite an impact upon all who were
present for his clinic on Gibson guitars, sharing some
experiences of his working with some of the top names in rock. Bart
unleashed a "riff " roaring and highly enlightening performance for all of the DMC JAM 4 crowds that
made out to our yearly event.

for their groundbreaking sound and intensity in the genres of
industrial and thash metal, respectfully. The mastermind behind both
of these prominent forces is none other than the legendary, extreme
music guitarist Mike Scaccia. To see this man in action and to
witness the shredding, angst ridden, riff ripping sound that he is
capable of producing, is truly an event in and of itself... and he
will show you how its done.
Live and in your face at DMC JAM 4.
