YAMS will host our first Roland Demo Day on Saturday, June 5th. We’ll be featuring performances by Macon’s own Matt Moncrief as well as the Mosely Dixon Project (all of whom teach at the store).

Tom Rule will be talking about keyboards & combo amps & music technology in general,
Mark Williams will demo Roland’s electronic drums and the Rock-Band compatible software that’s available,
and Bobby Hall & Matt Moncrief will talk guitars and Boss effects pedals.
Dan Quisenberry will float, answering all those questions the other guys can’t answer.

We’re trying to talk Dan into doing some of the killer demo stuff he does – we hear he’s incredible!

We’ll have 2 sessions:
one from 11:00 to Noonish,
and the second from 1 – 2 pm(-ish!).
