Parnelli Sponsors Support Awards Show Retrospective in FOH’s Jan. 2021 Issue

FOH Staff • News • November 11, 2020


LAS VEGAS — As previously announced, the Parnelli Awards, which have coincided with the Winter NAMM show in recent years, will take a “gap” year in 2021. Instead, as NAMM goes virtual this year with its Believe in Music Week (Jan. 18-22), a retrospective of the Parnelli Awards’ 20-year history will appear in a special section within the Jan. 2021 issues of PLSN and FRONT of HOUSE magazines.

“We are grateful to our sponsors stepping up to be part of this special section which is sure to be something of a keepsake,” said Terry Lowe, executive producer of the Parnelli Awards and publisher of PLSN and FOH. “It’s important to ‘keep the torch lit’ and honor our rich tradition.”

These “Keep the Torch Lit” Gold Sponsors for the Jan. 2021 special section include 4 Wall Entertainment, All Access Staging & Productions, Bandit Lites, d&b audiotechnik, Harman, L-Acoustics, Maryland Sound, Meyer Sound, Rock-it Cargo, Sound Image and Strictly FX. Silver Sponsors include Chauvet Professional, Elation Professional, Global Trend Productions, Hemphill Brothers, Solotech and Stageline. (To add your name to this list, contact Greg Gallardo at and 818-216-5336.)

“Believe me, there’s nothing I’d rather be doing than being knee deep working around the clock preparing for the Parnelli Awards show right now,” said Kevin Mitchell, Parnelli Awards producer. “That said, it has been an honor and a privilege to pause during this ‘gap year’ and dig deep in the archives and relive all the incredible moments we have shared together. I am personally and professionally grateful to our sponsors for making this possible.”

The special magazine section will include the history of the Parnelli Awards, commentary from co-founder Terry Lowe and longtime Parnelli board chairman Marshall Bissett, listings of award recipients in the career achievement categories over the years — Lifetime Achievement Award, Visionary Award, Audio Innovator Award and Parnelli Hall of Fame — and other highlights of the awards ceremonies staged over the last two decades. Lowe adds that a special video including 20 years of Parnelli highlights is now being prepared.
