If you're heading to the Aftershock Festival this coming weekend in Sacramento, CA, there will be ESP players in bands to see, as well as the opportunity for you to try out some of our guitars and basses for yourself at The Music Experience.
First, the bands. No one will want to miss Mastodon, featuring ESP player Bill Kelliher. Mastodon has had an amazing 2017, with the release of their acclaimed album Emperor of Sand and a follow-up EP called Cold Dark Place. You will likely see Bill playing his Sparrowhawk or Bill Kelliher Eclipse at the show.
If you're seeing Of Mice & Men at Aftershock, guitarist Alan Ashby will be rocking on his LTD Signature Series AA-600. It's a neck-thru-body TE shape with one pickup, one knob, and a killer attitude. Adam Tanbouz of He Is Legend, also performing at Aftershock, plays a number of ESPs, including an LTD EC-1000 and his latest love, an ESP E-II Eclipse. Also, do yourself a favor and make sure to catch Code Orange, featuring ESP player Reba Meyers. She has been blowing people away with her hardcore performances on the LTD Viper.
Bill Kelliher (Mastodon), Alan Ashby (Of Mice & men), Adam Tanbouz (He Is Legend), Reba Meyers (Code Orange) and Adam Wakeman (Ozzy Osbourne)
Oh, and if you happen to catch an artist called Ozzy Osbourne -- we heard he's pretty cool -- you'll see touring multi-instrumentalist Adam Wakeman, who spends a lot of time on keys, but also handles rhythm guitar with his several ESP and LTD guitars.
The Music Experience
In between the bands, make sure you find The Music Experience, an area set up specifically for you to get your hands on a bunch of music gear. We'll have some of our guitars and basses to check out, and various artists will be stopping by to do signings and more. Make sure to have that on your schedule while rocking your way through Aftershock!
