At the TPi’s 10th annual Production Industry Celebration in London our very own tech legend ‘Deptford’ John Armitage, who’s been out recently on the Take That sell-out tour, was amongst the celebrated award winners receiving ‘Backline Technician of the Year‘. Props, Deptford!

Attracting over 1,100 people from over 200 companies from all corners of the live music business, the TPi Awards recognises the achievements of the most talented and successful individuals and service companies working within the industry.

Guitar Masterclass with Deptford John and Lee Pomeroy 
John recently took part in the BBC’s Musicians’ Masterclass 2011, where he talked about maintaining and repairing guitars and basses. You can watch the class on the BBC’s Website.

John is also listed the National Skills Academy website. Why not have a look?

John’s website is a virtual articulated lorry stuffed full of goodness which offers ‘stadium standard guitar repairs for over 20 years’.
