Paxt Ltd invited to listen to a live production at Capitol Records

PAXT LTD were invited by Harman to attend their annual distributor conference in January 2011.  The two day conference was bigger, better and hosted at it’s new location the Renaissance Hollywood hotel, California.  Paxt were kept busy each day with interactive sessions, to increase their knowledge of the growing product ranges for all the Harman brands.

On one of the afternoon sessions a group of Harman distributors including the Paxt team, were transported to Capitol Records a well known record label in America.  They were escorted to one of the main recording studios where they listened to a live production performance.  Capitol Records was founded in 1942 by Johnny Mercer, and has over the years produced some of the best music of our generation.

Once seated in the studio they were introduced to the musicians, Greg Mathieson on piano, Bill Maxwell on drums, Justo Almario on saxophone, on lead vocals was Bill Champlin and finally Abraham Laboriel on bass who has worked with artists such as Michael Jackson, Madonna, Elton John and many more.  Tommy Vicari the sound engineer was based in the mixing room taking full control of the recording session.  What a great way to spend an afternoon.

Katie Nunn, Sales & Marketing Coordinator for Paxt Ltd said, “It was my first time in a live recording studio and it was great to listen to the band through Harman equipment” Katie when on to say “Being at Capitol Records in Hollywood was an unbelievable experience.”
