Just last week in London, two of Benedetto’s “Big P” Players, we call them, took the stage together – Howard Alden and Ulf Wakenius with Martin Taylor. We only wish we had video/audio from the evening to share, as we’re certain it was a fantastic night of music!
Happy Memorial Day 2016. Thankful for all who served, which includes our own Bob Benedetto and Howard Paul!
“All gave some, some gave all.”
Here are a few photos of Benedetto’s participation in this week’s very important NAMM Washington DC Fly-in Advocacy program raising awareness and helping lawmakers understand and fund music education in America’s most disadvantaged school districts. Leaders of musical instrument manufacturers, retailers, publishers and educators joins celebrities including Bernie Williams, KebMo, Eric Paslay, Citizen Cope and Tim Robbins worked together for music education.

We just re-stocked our Signature Black Benedetto Guitar Straps, and as usual, we don’t carry a lot of inventory. So, if you want one, like pictured here on Benedetto player Taylor Roberts and on our Prez Howard Paul (joined by Dr. Nick Passele, Joe Pass’ younger brother), you can get yours at Benedetto Gear (along with lots of other merchandise and accessories).

This week, National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) members, including our own Howard Paul, gather in Washington, D.C. to “stand up for music education” and to serve as advocates for the right of every child to learn and grow with music.
With the passage of the federal education law –Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) – NAMM members, artists and other industry influencers will meet with their Congressional Representatives to thank them for passing ESSA, and to reinforce the importance of music being designated as significant to a well-rounded education.
