NAMM 2012: Hanging out in Estonia Piano Booth
By Sam Bennett
2/7/2012 1:03:00 PM  
NAMM is the biggest music industry trade show in the world.  Held annually in January, NAMM will attract 100,000 manufacturers, dealers and musicians for every music category.  From accordians to zithers, microphones to stage lighting and, of course Pianos, NAMM is where new products are demonstrated and the business of music gets done.  For several years now, my favorite booth has been the Estonia Piano booth where Dr. Indrek Laul has created an oasis of relaxing chairs and relaxed smiles that make business a pleasure and attract scores of great musicians to stop by and just play.

This year, Dr. Laul brought his family, making it the first NAMM for his two young boys.  NAMM is also just down the street from Disneyland, so no convincing was required.  This delightful family of musicians has successfully made it their business also.Indrek Laul with his boys
