While many of musicians, studio types, instrument and accessory vendors from across the globe descend upon Anaheim for NAMM
, there's another music expo that's taking place as well. Deke Dickerson
is presenting his 10th annual Guitar Geek Festival
in Anaheim this weekend, which will be the last time that it is presented in conjunction with NAMM.
Though the festival is a passion project at this point (Dickerson told the LA Times
that he's been losing money every year since it's inception, but he would be open to doing a smaller one in L.A. in the future), it's always served as one of the cooler offshoots from NAMM that showcases some of the best axemen and women of the past and present.
