“We’re proud to be associated with B.B. King’s,” said Joe Hibbs, Mapex’s A&R man. “The clubs have earned a fine reputation for showcasing extraordinary talent and we’re very happy that a Mapex drum set will grace these stages.”
Additionally, renowned drummer Tony Coleman has joined the Mapex roster of artists. Tony is the Music Director for B.B. King’s Blues Clubs and band leader of the Nashville-based house band.
“The Mapex sets are fantastic,” says Tony. “They look as good as they sound. Mapex is the perfect fit for us here at B.B.’s.”
Coleman was B.B. King’s touring drummer for a decade before he launched his own solo career. He also frequently sits in with good friend and living legend, Willie Nelson.
Mapex is setting up fully-loaded Saturn setups in all the club venues and so far the performers have been very impressed. Tony explains, “With the level of talent that comes through our clubs, it’s very important that we provide the players with the best instruments possible. The Mapex gear has performed beyond our expectations.”
