2013 in review

2013 turned out to be probably one of the biggest years for me ever. Not only did I form a percussion distribution company, launch a new online store, but our company Paul Jennings Music also became the North American distributor for Sela Cajons, one of the world’s top cajon brands. We are continuing to build our lesson sites and have been working on PlayCajon version 2.0 which we are planning to launch in January 2014. The new site will have a lot of new content and great features. Along with all of this I managed to hit the road in the U.S and Europe with Red Hot Chilli Pipers for a bit too.

Here are some of the highlights from 2013.
