NAMM Show FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q. Are the guys gonna be at NAMM?
A. I don't know. If they are, it's not mentioned on The Official Site.
UPDATE! Eric and Paul have been sighted. Is it too late to change my answer to 'yes'?
Q. How can I find out?
A. One idea: Check the schedules posted at the booths for their signature and endorsed gear:
Q. Are they performing live anywhere in Southern California during NAMM?
A. Not that I know of. If they are, it's not mentioned on The Official Site.
Q. Are you going to NAMM?
A. No, I'm not really a day person. (I love the night life. I got to boogie.)
UPDATE! Veni, vidi, vici. (It's a woman's prerogative to change her mind.)
Q. Are you going to any shows while NAMM is going on?
A. That is highly likely.
Q. Which ones?

Now Dig This… (attribution)
New external links have been added to The Live Show database, including John Kindred's review of (and pictures of his ticket stub and the event poster from) the Grand Emporium show on October 24, 2003 in Kansas City; Intrepid Artist's factoid and live pic from the Sam The Record Man in-store in Toronto on October 17, 2003; and three live pictures from the Vallemaggia Magic Blues Festival's official site (taken July 16, 2003).
extracurriculars >> eric sardinas
An Eric Sardinas extracurricular album appearance has been added, "Glass Eden." He is credited as an additional performer, and played dobro on track 12, "Do It To Yourself." [Click HERE to visit the official album page and listen to the song.]
bootlegs >> audio compact discs
I've added a section for my bootlegs to the page. [I know what you're thinking… Of course they're audio compact discs! What else could they be? Video DVD's, that's what. COMING SOON!]
i'm with the band
EXCERPT: One might place Sardinas in the same category as Kenny Wayne Shepherd or Jonny Lang, but even though those guys are good, they couldn't even think about having the same energy. Sardinas' ability surpasses anyone of today; he and Jimi Hendrix must have known each other in a past life… [View the scan and read the entire article HERE.]
concert reviews, tour pics, etc. >> external websites
new contest >> the ihumpthings.com challenge!
Objective: To increase the level of entropy in the universe, one Sardinas show at a time.
2. Find and hump an Eric Sardinas Signature Model Resonator (Washburn ES10 or ES20) OR any of the actual gear used by the band during live performances (must be onstage at an actual live venue!) OR any of the band members (must be a spontaneous hump: no obtaining permission in advance, and NO STAGED HUMPS!).
3. Take a picture and write a brief description to document your activities.
5. Wait for your picture to be published on the site.
6. Email me the link to your picture (once published) and your shipping address.
The Prize: Each and every fan who crosses the proverbial finish line (other than me) will NOT receive copies of my imaginary Eric Sardinas rarities (which don't exist).
Q. I might go to some/one of those shows, and it would be cool to meet another Sardinas fan, but I don't know what you look like…?
A. Lucky you! But seriously… Send me an email and let me know your plans. We can work it out.
