For the second year, Pensado's Place & Vintage King are teaming up to produce one of the biggest gear and music-making expos in America. This time in Nashville, attendees will once again be able to demo gear, talk directly with manufacturer reps, watch live interviews, mingle with celebrity guests, ride the tour bus, win prizes, enjoy local food trucks and meet Dave Pensado and Herb Trawick of Pensado's Place.
 
Pensado's Place is the acclaimed hour-long weekly educational web series that celebrates the evolving landscape of music and technology and gives a voice to its leaders and innovators.
This free event all goes down at Vintage King's award-winning facility and surrounding yards in the famous Berry Hill neighborhood on Saturday, September 27th, 2014 from 10am until 4pm.
 
The celebration kicks off in the Vintage King parking lot with a rocking block party and special guests, including John McBride (Martina McBride, Blackbird), Jacquire King (Kings Of Leon, Tom Waits), Ryan Hewitt (Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Avett Brothers), Justin Niebank (Rascal Flatts, Sheryl Crow), Vance Powell (Jack White, Beck) and many more.

"Getting high profile producers, engineers and gear makers together with block party-goers is ideal," said Vintage King Audio Director of Marketing Jason Van Doorn. "It's like a mini-convention, but in a more relaxed and fun setting."
 
The official "Pensado/Vintage King Gear Expo Tour Bus" will be taking visitors back and forth to Blackbird Studio all day long. As one of Vintage King's biggest supporters, Blackbird has hosted historic sessions with artists such as Neil Young, the White Stripes, Bruce Springsteen and more. Giving guests another opportunity to check out new and vintage gear hard at work, partygoers will be able to see John and Martina McBride's studio in all of its glory.
 
"What a great fall event in Music City, USA, bringing together people from all facets of the recording community," commented Brian Kraft, Chief Academic Officer and COO for Recording Radio Film Connection. "We look forward to seeing old industry friends as well as meeting new ones. It's all about connecting."
 
Sponsors with booths on site include Recording Radio Film Connection, Moog, Rupert Neve Designs, sE Electronics, Genelec, Ultimate Ears, Chandler Limited, M1 Distribution and more.
 
"We're anticipating a huge gathering for this second annual Vintage King Gear Expo," commented Tom Menrath, Vintage King Audio Head of Strategic Development. "It's going to be a very special day for Nashville and the entire pro audio community."
