The hotel soiree was part of a handful of events that featured women at NAMM, such as the She Rocks Awards, presented by the Women’s International Music Network.

Gritty In Pink made their mark at the NAMM conference on January 26, with their hotel suite soiree. The event was sponsored by Mackie, Johnnie Walker, Owl’s Brew, Waterloo, For Bitter For Worse, El Cristiano, Postmates, Keychange US, and Guitar Girl Magazine.

Hotel party guests were treated to an acoustic show, featuring artists available for hire online. The bill consisted of DJ Vashonda Sherra, Trishes, VK Lynne, and Dom Jones. DJ Vashonda Sherra kicked off the night with a genre-bending musical set as attendees lined up out the door. Gritty In Pink founder, and host for the evening, Shira Yevin, introduced multidisciplinary artist Trishes who performed “Animal” and “Astrology.” Dom Jones rocked the crowd with “Video” and “Devil Ride” with assistance from guitarist Jeremy Flegel. VK Lynne (The Spider Accomplice) closed out the event with a performance of her latest Melissa Etheridge’s cover single “The Different.” All guests were prompted to sign up for the INPINK marketplace upon entry.
