Nobody can accuse Pearl of being a party pooper. On July 16, the Nashville-based percussion giant got its groove on at Freaky Tiki -- an island-themed party the company hosted for the Alliance Of Independent Music Merchants (AIMM).
Complete with Taiko performers, Hawaiian leis, and Tiki torches, the group of independent full line retail buyers, owners, salesman, and their families were treated to an evening of music, barbeque, product demonstrations, giveaways, and unique sales opportunities. There was even a dunk tank, which provided dealers with the opportunity to “dunk” the credit manager.
