Hundreds gather at Hybrid Happy Hour 2018 for food, drink, and live music
Hybrid Studios hosted its fourth annual NAMM afterparty, Hybrid Happy hour 2018, at their Santa Ana location on January 26th. Presented by Stacks FX, Towne Park Brewery, The Arts & Learning Conservatory, and Angeline Vineyards & Winery, with Genelec, Lewitt, and Applebox Network, the sold out event featured an In-n-Out food truck, open bar, and performances from Bearwulf, The Shakes, and Bird & The War. Complimentary shuttle service to and from the Anaheim Convention Center was available throughout the night to make travel simple for NAMM attendees and convention sponsors.
“We were thrilled with the turnout again this year,” said Hybrid Studios Manager, Mike Miller, “The party is an opportunity for NAMM attendees to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the convention, have some drinks, relax, and listen to some great music. It also gives our industry sponsors a chance to show and discuss their products in their natural environment. We had Stacks FX in Studio B, while Lewitt and Genelec shared the control room in Studio A. Our alcohol sponsors were a huge hit as well. We can’t thank Towne Park and Angeline Vineyards enough for providing their amazing products for the party.”
Every year Hybrid Studios tries to improve and add new elements to the annual event. For 2018, the studio implemented a live stream of the event on Hybrid’s Facebook page through Applebox Network, a resident partner of the Santa Ana production facility. Applebox host Kevin Allen interviewed Lewitt Founder and CEO, Roman Perschon, Genelec’s Eastern Territory Sales Manager, Paul Stewart, and Bearwulf front man, Rob Gravely. Hybrid Manager, Mike Miller, interviewed Stacks FX Founder, Brian Frederick, and singers from Bird & The War and The Shakes, Chris Chavez and Sean Perry respectively. Craig “Burnie” Burns interviewed select partygoers throughout the night, and performances from all three bands were streamed live as well. A highlight video and photos from the event will be available soon on Hybrid’s facebook and http://www.HybridHappyHour.com/.
