ROB ZOMBIE, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, QUEENSRŸCHE Members To Take Part In SAMSON's NAMM Program

Samson Technologies has a robust and growing artist relations program and will once again showcase this program at NAMM with a range of talented newcomers and seasoned veterans. This year, Samson's all-star schedule will feature over 20 artists from varying genres signing autographs and demonstrating products.

With a plethora of artists ranging from metal icons to jazz greats to funk virtuosos, Samson has put together three days of signings and four days of live performances that will appeal to fans and musicians alike. Some of the artists that will be signing at the Samson booth include John 5 (ROB ZOMBIE, ex-MARILYN MANSON), Herman Li and Sam Totman (DRAGONFORCE), Brian Fair, Jason Bittner and Matt Bachand (SHADOWS FALL), Michael Amott (ARCH ENEMY, CARCASS), Scott Ian, Charlie Benante and Frank Bello (ANTHRAX) and Willie Adler (LAMB OF GOD).

"Plain and simple: Samson makes great products," says Brian Fair, singer for Grammy-nominated SHADOWS FALL. "I get flawless performance on stage and in the studio with every product I use. I also love the people at Samson. They're awesome to work with and the gear is fantastic."

In addition to the impressive signing schedule, Samson will also have a variety of artists providing live performances for the music-hungry masses of NAMM. These artists include Stu Hamm (JOE SATRIANI), Jason Hook (ALICE COOPER), John "J.D." DeServio (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY), Kiko Loureiro (ANGRA), George Lynch (DOKKEN, LYNCH MOB) and Mike Stone (QUEENSRŸCHE, SPEED X).

"With all the new and innovative products we're unveiling at NAMM, these signings and performances are a perfect complement," says Mark Menghi, Artist Relations Coordinator for Samson. "We're thrilled that all these great artists are willing to take the time out of their busy schedules to support us with such loyalty and enthusiasm."
