Alex Anderson is the sales manager and a product specialist for WMD, a modular synthesizer company based in Denver, CO. As a multi-instrumentalist, he has been performing in different groups and playing different roles for as long as he can remember. His current project is called Nasty Nachos, as a reminder to not take things so seriously and just have a good time with the music he creates. For the Rocky Mountain Synth Meet performance, Alex plans to use a mostly modular set up in an improvised fashion. WMD announced a new line of modules at NAMM 2017 geared toward this type of live performance and Alex will be putting them all through the test.
Nasty Nachos will be performing a full live set at the Snowmageddon festival on February 11th, at 3:30 PM at Ruby Hill in Denver. It is a free show and the festival includes a snowboarding exhibition by pro snowboarders and other great acts including One Flew West, DJ Mikey Thunder, and Robert Delong.
