This past weekend, the masses descended upon the Anaheim Convention Center for The NAMM Show — the first such gathering since January 2020, shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic.

For those in attendance, the usual enthusiasm and pounding drums and guitar squeals from was abundant … but it was a decidedly different NAMM, one that saw major companies such as Fender, Gibson and others not in attendance with their typically grandiose booth/showroom setups.

Despite that, and a downsized exhibit hall that made for a somewhat more intimate NAMM Show feel, the energy was flowing, deals were made and for everyone who did make it, it was a very welcomed return to one of the world’s largest and most buzzed-about music industry trade shows.

Below, catch a glimpse of the vibe at the NAMM Show from photographer Jerome Brunet, who traversed the exhibit halls on Saturday to snap some photos for Rock Cellar.
