This celebration is called the TEC Awards and it happens at the NAMM show in Anaheim each year. Jon Leon Guerrero and Pete A Turner attended the show in 2019 and sat down with Larry White and Claytoven Richardson the music directorial team for the awards show.
Larry and Claytoven grew up in Oakland and have been friends for decades. Given the years and chops between these two, you know the band is smokin!
