BT Live Update: NAMM Archive, Guitar Winner, and Biomimicrant & VJ Kai this Friday

Did you catch the show? This past weekend BitTorrent partnered with Dean Guitars and the National Association for Music Merchants (NAMM) to stream live from the NAMM Jam concert and NAMM conference in Anaheim California. The event was incredible! If you didn’t see it, catch up with the archived stream here.

With the help of our partner Dean Guitars, BitTorrent Live testers had the opportunity see heavy metal legends Testament and Jackyl, plus the chance to win a Dave Mustaine VMNT Fear Signature Dean Guitar.

We’re excited to announce that Kathy N. of Phoenix, Arizona is our contest winner. She writes, “I am so beyond excited for winning this guitar contest!  I want to thank everyone at BitTorrent and Dean Guitars for the chance to win this guitar. I am surprised that I can even type right now I’m bouncing around my living room and I am headed for Facebook, Twitter and my cell to let everyone know the great news!”

A big congrats to Kathy from all of us here at BitTorrent. We love to be able to give back to our fans that continually help us test and improve our technology.

The BitTorrent Live tests have been building a solid audience every Friday, so it was a nice change to be able to host a live Web cast on the road, introduce ourselves to more fans and be a part of such an incredible concert. Thank you to Dean Guitars for the support.

This Friday (January 27th) we are back up in San Francisco for our weekly live Web cast in the BitTorrent Live Studio. You can tune in and be part of the live session featuring Biomimicrant & VJ Kai by going to http://live.bittorrent.com at 8:00 PM PT (4:00 GMT).

And as always, check out more info and stay up to date on our weekly live sessions as well as special events at our Live Studio page on Facebook.
