AMERICANA - Wrap Up!

More reporting from Voyage-Air Guitar Artist Relations Director, Virginia Cannon:

Saturday, September 11, 2010 - "Another busy day at the Americana Music Conference yesterday, among the talented artists visiting our booth were Dave Gibson, John Oates, Jim Lauderdale, Mark Dreyer, Tori Sparks, John Brannen and Webb Wilder. Here's a pic of Dave Gibson and John Oates at the Voyage-Air booth. Yeah!

"Wrapping things up, we tore down the booth and went to grab a quick bite to eat before heading down to The Cannery for another night of music.

"The secret surprise guest was Nashville megastar, Dierks Bentley. Sharing the stage with Jon Randall and Sam Bush amongst others, we watched from side stage. In a chance meeting, I got to tell Robert Plant how much I’d enjoyed his show the night before. He was gracious but seemed weary of hearing that, as I’m sure he had the whole night.

"The night concluded during a chat with Mike Ferris, who happily agreed to call the winner of our guitar raffle tonight after his performance at The Cannery. Tune in soon for news about the winner!"

AMERICANA - Day 2!

Continuing the report from the Americana Music Festival is Voyage-Air Guitar Artist Relations Director, Virginia Cannon:

"Friday, September 10, 2010 - Working in the Artist Relations position definitely has its ups and downs but yesterday was most certainly an UP! In our booth at the Americana Music Festival were The Mulch Brothers, playing guitar, meeting and greeting the registrants from the AMA. Think about infusing charisma to an otherwise mundane setting of working the booth... these guys created an air of stardom! They were engaging and kind to everyone who came to the booth. The true sign of gracious entertainers.

"I went from there to the world famous Ryman Auditorium for the Americana Music Awards where we sat in the 8th row on the floor to witness amazing talent like Roseanne Cash, Wanda Jackson, Sam Bush, Avett Brothers, Carolina Chocolate Drops and Emmylou Harris. Presenters included Jack White, John Oates and Robert Plant.

"We went from there to the Station Inn, to see John Oates perform. I thought that I liked John before, but now I am completely head over heels. John is an amazing musician and vocalist. He commanded the stage in a way that was both demanding and kind to his fellow musicians. He was surrounded by the best of the best, Jon Randall, Guthrie Trapp, Sam Bush and singing background by his side was the amazing Jessi Alexander. The vibe was nothing I ever expected, and completely sealed my faith in his ability to carry on well after Hall & Oates. His vocals were clear and strong and his sense of himself, the other musicians and the way he carried it off, speaks to his true talen. He pleased the crowd with a few Hall & Oates tunes such as “You Make My Dreams Come True” and “She’s Gone.”

"Today will be another big day at the AMA Conference, with John Oates doing a "Meet and Greet" in the Voyage-Air Guitar Booth at 2pm. His appearance will certainly be a highlight of the conference. He’ll be signing autographs and posing for pictures, as is typical of this humble superstar.

"Listen to what John has to say about Voyage-Air Guitar in the video link below:

"Appearing at 3pm today is the unstoppable Dave Gibson. Best known for his days with the Gibson/Miller Band, Dave has penned hits for Steve Wariner, Joe Diffie, Confederate Railroad, Tanya Tucker, Alabama, Pam Tillis, and Montgomery Gentry. Dave Gibson earned six number ones, and Alabama's "Juke Box in My Mind" stayed at number one for an impressive four weeks. An Academy of Country Music award winner, Dave is sure to draw a crowd. Hear Dave Gibson’s new single recently released as a music video.

"Well, that's it for now, I'm off to the AMA Conference! Check back in tomorrow for all the latest developments!"

Voyage-Air goes Americana!

This just in from Voyage-Air Guitar Artist Relations Director, Virginia Cannon:

"Thursday, September 9, 2010 – What an amazing week! Yesterday started early and with a bang! I picked up the legendary John Oates, of Hall and Oates at his hotel to take him to be interviewed for a program called Music Business Radio (MBR), at WRLT, Lightning 100, in Nashville. WRLT is one the oldest independently owned stations in the country. With its inception in 2005, MBR has hosted notable music industry giants such as Kris Kristofferson, Alanis Morrisette, Rodney Crowell, Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) Brent Mayer (Elvis Presley's producer), and most recently Rusty Anderson, who also plays a Voyage-Air Guitar on stage with Paul McCartney. Check out Music Business Radio at www.musicbusinessradio.com and also on youtube.

"John Oates will be performing in Nashville tonight as part of the Americana Music Festival, at The Station Inn. The show is at midnight, a coveted spot in the AMA line up, and he will be hosting an all star cast of AAA players including Jon Randall, Guthrie Trapp and Jessi Alexander; certainly a show not to be missed but sadly only for AMA registrants, and not open to the public.

"I ended up my day with Jim Mayer, the bass player for Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band, who also has a side project of writing, singing and producing cd’s for kids. Check out: www.unclejimrocks.com. He is our most recent Voyage-Air Guitar endorser, and he LOVES our guitar. Stay tuned for more information on Jim, coming up.

"Looking forward to a busy day at the Americana Music Conference where The Mulch Brothers will make a special appearance in our booth today to meet and greet the fans and sign some cds. www.mulchbrothers.com

"Check back in tomorrow for the latest news from the Americana Music Festival. See ya then!"

Jody Maphis

Jody Maphis goes Voyage-Air! Jody Maphis started playing guitar at the age of six under the watchful eye of his father,country great Joe Maphis. While growing up in California, Jody's musical influences ranged from the "Bakersfield Sounds" of Buck Owens and Merle Haggard, to the LA based country-rock styles of The Byrds,The Flying Burrito Brothers and Poco.

After moving to Nashville, Jody's musical background and ability to play guitar (as well as several other instruments) landed him road work and session dates with such acts as Barbara Mandrell, The Earl Scruggs Revue, Michael Martin Murhphey, Johnny Rodriguez, Johnny Cash, Lynn Anderson, Matraca Berg, Marty Stuart and Gary Allan.

After a spin on the new Voyage-Air electric guitars, Jody was sold, and only too happy to say he's going to be playing a Voyage-Air guitar. Check the video below!
