CandoMusos announces that they will again be presenting their global vision for all musicians with disabilities on Sunday, January 24, 2016 at 3 pm PST, in the H.O.T. Zone at the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Conference in Anaheim, California at the Anaheim Convention Center.
CandoMusos was established to become the global voice for challenged musicians throughout the world. The aim is to promote and assist all musicians with any kind of disability by helping them bridge the gap between talent and limitations, while providing support and access to resources. The name comes from the idea that having a “can-do attitude” is the first step toward success. “Muso” is a term used in England and Australia to describe musicians with a passion and dedication to their music. The two words joined together form a unique name, which defines both the organization’s vision and mission.
CandoMusos was started by drummers Dom Famularo, David Segal, Andrew Hewitt, and Mike Mignogna in March 2013 at Dom’s Wizdom Drumshed in Long Island, New York. Drummer Joe Hardy from California was recently added as a new associate board member. Over 200 members of the CandoMusos family from twenty-four countries currently use the group’s free website, fostering worldwide communication among disabled musicians.
