ANAHEIM, JANUARY 22, 2014 ― RapcoHorizon (NAMM Booth 4556), an RHC Holdings Brand, has been chosen as the exclusive cabling and connectivity provider for the 2015 NAMM Show’s H.O.T. (Hands-On Training) Zone Silent Jams in the Tech Lab (Room 202 B). Located on Level 2 of the convention center, this training area provides educational sessions for professionals in the pro audio, recording, live sound, DJ, entertainment technologies, music business, staging and lighting industries.
RapcoHorizon is providing mic and instrument cables and snakes for the Silent Jam interviews with Steve Morse, guitarist for the bands Dixie Dregs and Deep Purple, on Friday, January 23 at 1 p.m., and guitar player Jeff ‘Skunk’ Baxter, who has worked with such legendary bands as Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers, on Saturday, January 24 at 12 p.m. These presentations will be hosted by Brian Hardgroove, bass player for Public Enemy and host of the radio show’s Hardgroove’s Fuse Box and This is Hardgroove. Each session will host 140 attendees and consist of in-depth artist interviews, followed up by a jam session featuring Hardgroove on bass, Mike Boyko on drums and Robert Muller on keys.
Longtime monitor engineer Mark Frink will be mixing each of the lunchtime sessions. He selected the RapcoHorizon cables for their ability to adapt to an ever-changing presentation. “RapcoHorizon has provided cabling for my tours for decades, from instrument leads to XLRs and even fiber optics for the Zac Brown Band tour,” he says. “The brand’s M4 and M6 Quad cables provide improved performance over standard XLRs, while its eight- and six-pack sub-snakes are great for crowded stages. They are also available in dual box stringers, perfect for back line.”
“We are pleased to team up with NAMM for its H.O.T Zone Silent Jams,” says Darius Seabaugh, vice president of marketing for RHC Holdings. “The training sessions have long been regarded in the industry and the artists lined up for this year’s jams are some of the best in the industry. I look forward to hearing their sounds through RapcoHorizon cables.”
