Here it is and we’re ready – join us!
Four Big UBMNA Events: Your United by Music team is busy taking our message about this extraordinary program to people and organizations who might be persuaded to love and support it the way we do!
1) January 22-26 - NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA
The NAMM Show is considered the music product industry's premier event and is where brands are built, legends are created and deals are made. Amanda and Barbara will bring the United by Music North America message to these industry leaders in order to create awareness of and support for building the program in communities across the country. Several of our United by Music mentors will be in residence there including Doug MacLeod, Lee Oskar and Jim Alfredson. I’m sure more will be discovered throughout the week of seminars, performances, workshops and demonstrations.
2) January 23-27 - GRAMMY week, Los Angeles, CA
Overlapping activities of the NAMM Show in Anaheim, is GRAMMY week in Los Angeles! Several of United by Music North America producer, Amanda Gresham’s Delta Music Experience artists have been graced with GRAMMY nominations and we will be there to cheer them on!

Winter Blues Music Festival is thrilled to announce a collaboration with United by Music North America! We are working with UBMNA co-founders Amanda Gresham and Barbara Hammerman to add another performance and philanthropic dimension to our festival. United by Music North America can be described as the “Special Olympics of Music”, says Hammerman. It is a program for musically talented people who have developmental challenges such as Autism, Aspergers, and Williams Syndromes. UBMNA has been presented in the U.S. by Amanda Gresham’s Delta Music Experience, sponsor of the DME Blues Cruises and the Louisiana Pavilion at Waterfront Blues Festival.
