Oral History Information
Deej White is a familiar face to those backstage at the NAMM show. As a long-time roadie and production manager, Deej has learned the importance of being prepared, for example he always has a flashlight on hand to help people on stage. After ten years of serving in the US Navy, Deej spent 15 years on the road traveling with performers all across the United States and five continents. He began driving trucks but soon his skills as an electrician paid off when he was asked to repair a guitar amplifier. He then became a drum tech for years, tuning and making repairs for live events. In 2011 he was asked by Freeman Companies to assist the NAMM Summer Show in Nashville and has been a Production Manager for the Summer and Winter NAMM shows ever since. With flashlight always on hand!
