Hey, hey, hey… we were down at Welcome to Rockville last week in Daytona, Florida to showcase our products in partnership with @RONZWORLD, @AMS, @TMEXP, and @HARDROCK. We all had a great time hanging with the "Rockvillians" at the concert… and thank you so much to the fanbase for dressing up. We saw just about everything down there – classic KISS outfits, el naturale, and some gunslinger dressed as a gnarly set of nuts with a 6 ft shaft attached! Florida had it all, including a ton of lightning and frequent storms which resulted in many delays and cancellations. But all-in-all, a great time.

We were fortunate enough to be placed right in the center of the American Musical Supply (AMS) tent with about 100 guitars and 15 amps… downside was we couldn’t hear ourselves think it was so loud. Imagine being at the center of 15 guitarists of various skill sets, playing 15 different riffs with high gain simultaneously! No, you don’t want to! Believe me, it was awful! But in the midst of it all, we did manage to hear some really talented artists who ended up buying a bunch of picks. We did an impromptu interview with Derek from @MASTERSOFSHRED and witnessed a freakin’ wedding performed by SQUIGGY from @TMEXP! It was off the charts… the bride walked through an aisle of guitars to meet the groom… they closed down the merch tent… and SQUIGGY (would never think this guy was ordained) married them off!

…and BTW if you haven’t seen Black Label Society or Five Finger Death Punch LIVE yet, go ahead and add that to your bucket list!

As for the rest of the trip, I got to spend some quiet time with my wife away from our four children. Felt like it had been forever! Oh, wait! I forgot to mention the crazy talented female shredder at the shred contest!

There was a shred contest full of dudes and one a 14-year-old female artist who absolutely CRUSHED everyone! SHE RAWKED!

That’s all for now! Next stop INKCARCERATION in Mansfield Ohio… can’t wait to see what this one brings!
