Performing Artists Visit Evans
Horacio ''El Negro'' Hernandez, world conga drumming great Giovanni Hidalgo
and Dean Butterworth of 'Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals' all visited

recorded for use on Evans' upcoming video and interactive CD-ROM, which
will include a factory tour, a full catalog and Evans' artist video and
audio clips. Giovanni Hidalgo spend the day testing Evans' new conga heads,
which will be available in 1999. At day's end, El Negro and Giovanni got
together for an incredible jam session that left those who witnessed it
''It was an exciting day for Evans, having three of our most valued
performing artists here on one day,'' said Artist Relations Manager Peter
D'Addario. ''They truly enjoyed touring our facilities and watching Evans
products in action. As always, we gained valuable experience and knowledge
from their input and feedback on our products.''
