"Lips" Kudlow from Anvil Signed as BUGERA Endorser

(PresseBox) (Anaheim, CA, ) Steve "Lips" Kudlow, the guitarist/lead singer from the now legendary band, Anvil, has been tapped as BUGERA's newest artist endorser. Dan Gallagher, VP of Instrument Amplification for parent group company MUSIC Group, made the announcement just prior to the NAMM show in Anaheim, CA.

"We are pleased to have Steve in the BUGERA family. We've done some amazing photo sessions with Steve, the results of which will be showcased in BUGERA advertising in 2013. We couldn't be happier to have such a great front man for our beloved amplifier line!"

The Canadian metal band has occupied a unique place in the hearts and minds of music enthusiasts since their 1981 debut, Hard N' Heavy. Anvil, which was co-founded by Kudlow and drummer Robb Reiner, has been listed by many as one of the creators of the thrash/speed metal genre. But due to bad record deals, bad management, and just plain bad luck, Anvil appeared to take a back seat to a new wave of metal bands - most of which listed the group as a prime influence. Anvil never stopped rocking, and with the arrival of the critically-acclaimed/surprise hit film in 2008, "Anvil! The Story of Anvil," the group came back strong and is back at the forefront of heavy metal.

Kudlow and his bandmates will be appearing at the BUGERA Lounge at NAMM at 2:30 PM on Saturday, January 26th followed by an autograph session. The BUGERA Lounge is part of the expansive MUSIC Group booth #5740 located inside the Anaheim Convention.
