NSSBE Annual Conference

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NSSBE had to cancel its 2020 annual Professional Conference, which was scheduled for March 13-14 in Cincinnati, OH. As disappointing as this decision was, it was the correct decision. The safety and health of our membership, and the Cincinnati area at large, was our primary concern.
 
Plans for our 2021 Professional Conference are already underway. The NSSBE 2021 conference will be held on February 26-27, 2021 in Summerville, SC, with Steering Committee member Mike Greer hosting. We are very pleased to announce that our headliners for 2020, the Britain Moore Duo, are scheduled to be with us in 2021. The duo consists of Mat Britain (Vanderbilt University) and Dan Moore (University of Iowa), who met at Wichita State University while studying percussion under J.C. Combs. Founded in 1986, the BMD combines keyboard percussion and steelpan and performs a wide variety of musical styles.
 
The duo has three albums, Nutville (2014), Little World of Rhythm (2001), and Cricket City (1993), and has performed hundreds of times throughout the world. The BMD has collaborated with numerous other artists as well including Matt Wilson, Roy “Futureman” Wooten, and NEXUS.
