          Wouldn't miss it for the world. Axpona and Newport are probably the two best attended shows in the US.

                I know many members here cross pollinate with other forums so it would be nice to meet the great people I chat with about my audio passion. Set a day, time and location for all to meet, shake hands and see the person behind the posts. Linger and drink if we like and share all our amazing audio stories.

                  AXPONA UNVEILS MANUFACTURER’S SHOWCASE APRIL 15-17, 2016 WITH A VIP AND MEDIA PREVIEW ON OPENING DAY
                  Explore the latest product debuts from 18 Exhibitors in this special display

                  ROSEMONT, IL (February 9, 2016) - - AXPONA (Audio Expo North America) returns to the Westin O’Hare in Rosemont, IL, April 15-17, 2016, and will showcase for the first time ever a Manufacturer’s Showcase, offering VIP attendees and Media a first look at a museum-like display of the newest products and innovations from the renowned manufacturers. In all, more than 18 manufacturers and dealers will display nearly 100 products in The Manufacturer’s Showcase, including Artisan Fidelity, AXISS Audio, Channel D, Convergent Audio Technology, Blue Smoke Entertainment Systems, ELAC, Emotiva, Kyomi Audio, Legacy Audio, Luxman, Merrill Audio, Nola Speakers, Pro Audio, Questyle Audio, Snake River Audio/ Sonist Audio, TEAC and Van Den Hul. The Showcase will be open exclusively to VIP and Media on Friday, and will open to the general public on Saturday and Sunday.

                  “The Manufacturer’s Showcase offers a select group of manufacturers the unique opportunity to showcase their newest products in a centralized location, and in a unique and innovative manner," said Stephen Davis, Director of Sales and Industry Relations, AXPONA. "This area will give visitors and potential customers the chance to really take their time observing and learning more about the incredible products that will be debuting at AXPONA. We think manufacturers and attendees are going to embrace The Manufacturer's Showcase, and make it one of the most popular areas at AXPONA."

                  Participating exhibitors agree the Manufacturer’s Showcase will offer attendees the unique opportunity to see, touch and test the newest products on the market from the world’s leading manufacturers. Highlights include

We look forward to a very successful AXPONA Show by the creative ideas of JD-events personnel.” Brian Tucker, President, Pro Audio Ltd.

                  “By adding the Manufacturer’s Showcase, AXPONA has gone above and beyond to stand out as one of the top trade shows for the audiophile community. The best thing about the showcase is that it levels the playing field and allows small artisan brands, like ours, to get the same exposure as the big-budget manufacturers." Jonny Wilson, Snake River Audio, LLC

                  “The Manufacturer’s Showcase is an exciting new addition to AXPONA as it will offer a centralized location to view the latest innovations in audio technology.” Bill Dudleston, Legacy Audio

                  “We are looking forward to the Manufacturer’s Showcase at AXPONA this year. We think the showcase is a great opportunity to show one of the new products we are releasing in 2016.” Jessica Laufman, Emotiva

                    Chicago Blues Night

                    Open to All Attendees!

                    The Blues are back at AXPONA with an exciting concert line up presented by Acoustic Sounds! Up-and-coming artist Noah Wotherspoon will start the show and then fans are in for a treat with headliner Chicago Blues Legend Lurrie Bell!

                    About the Artists:

                    Lurrie Bell’s Chicago Blues Band
                    www.lurrie.com
                    Born in 1958, the son of famed blues harmonica player Carey Bell, Lurrie Bell picked up his father’s guitar at age of five and taught himself to play. He was clearly gifted. In addition, he grew up with many of the Chicago blues legends around him. Eddie Taylor, Big Walter Horton, Eddie C. Campbell, Eddie Clearwater, Lovie Lee, Sunnyland Slim, Jimmy Dawkins and many more were frequent visitors to his house. They all helped to shape and school him in the blues, but none as much as his father’s long-time employer Muddy Waters.

                    Noah Wotherspoon
                    www.noahwotherspoon.com
                    The Noah Wotherspoon Band hails from southwest Ohio. Wotherspoon has been immersed in the blues and mesmerizing audiences with his soulful guitar playing since he was a teenager. The band, which includes Rob Thaxton on bass and Brian Aylor on drums, formed in 2009. In 2015, Wotherspoon received the Best Guitarist Award at the International Blues Challenge and the band placed 2nd in the finals. Since the competition, they have been playing festivals and venues around the country. This year also saw the release of the band's debut studio album entitled "Mystic Mud", which was selected by the Cincy Blues Society as the Best Self-Produced CD for entry into the 2016 IBC's. The release was also presented a "Jimi Award" for Best Blues/Rock Album of the Year by Blues411.
