Hugs... for selling a bag?

Hi, my name is Chris Baron and I am a touring musician based in the Northwest, which is how I found out about Namba Gear. Namba Gear is based in Portland, OR and I had heard the owner, Woody Moran, performing in a Portland club. Woody and I became friends over several years, performing double bills, which sometimes led to performing on stage together.

At the Mobile Beat Conference... Woody told me that he regularly exhibits at the Mobile Beat Conference in Las Vegas each year and needed some extra help. Since I was going to be touring in that general direction and had not booked the dates yet, I told him that I would help him with the Namba Gear exhibit.

Now here's the unexpected part...

I couldn’t believe so many people told Woody “thank you” for selling them a bag. Seriously. These were all musicians, producers and djs. And they were all hugging him, patting him on the back, and shaking his hand saying thanks… for selling them a bag. For Selling Them A Bag.

I drank the Kool-Aid...

By the end of the conference, I was convinced, I drank the kool-aid, had joined the tribe, and I had two bags picked out that would do the job for me. Hahaha. The one I wound up with was the Taga Duffle. Also I’ll post some pics of my Taga bag “in action” on my Instagram page #chrisbaronmusic and #nambagear. Oh yes… and if you hear that I’m playing in your town, come on down and say hi. (Chris accepts hugs as well. WM)
