Michael Angelo Batio & Neil Turbin All Star Metal NAMM JAM Lineup Announced

January 20, 2018

The 11th Annual Neil And Michaels Metal Jam 2018 on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 7:00pm at The Slidebar Fullerton, CA. 


Featured artists include members from  King Diamond, LA Guns, Faster Pussycat, Nitro, Anthrax, Warbringer, Fear Factory, The Iron Maidens, Tygers Of Pantang, Bumblefoot, Witchcasket, Holy Grail, Huntress, The Starbreakers, Femme Fatale, Warrior, Ross The Boss, Dragonsclaw, Silent Rage, Odin, DC4 and many more...


This years event  emphasis on virtuoso shred guitarists.  To the contrary of what some might assume is uncontrolled soloing, it is actually a team of guitarists that work together and play tight songs in unison without rehearsing or playing these songs together ever before.  It is exciting and of course challenging for the artists and a fresh new songlist is performed each year.
