Kennedy Violins of Vancouver, Washington is awesome! They provided 78 violins at no charge to the 3rd and 5th graders at MITCH Charter School in Tualatin, Oregon. They delivered, sized all the students, gave them a brief tutorial on how to care for the instruments and then came a week later to pick up the instruments. All 78 students had a fabulous time learning to play the violin while The Virginia Real Band taught them some fundamentals and a few songs. Without a doubt some students found that they had a new appreciation for violins and that would not have been possible if it hadn't been for the dedication and graciousness of Travis and Rachel at Kennedy Violins. Thank you so much for making our violin camp possible and successful!

At least Kennedy Violin spam uses consistent names. I wonder if they use the same ip for everything, or do they farm the spam out to China too.

Yea, they do quite a bit of spamming.

From their website:
Joel Kennedy is president and global strategist for Kennedy Violins, Inc

Apparently, spam is a big part of their global strategy.

Interesting.. I am a moderator on the Piano World forums and we always take a dim view of spammers. 

I saw an instance yesterday where it appeared that Kennedy had spammed a forum. Now I see this today. I am thinking of making a purchase, but I do not buy from spammers. It's a policy of mine.. Like I don't do business with phone solicitors.. 

Let's just say that the two companies I was thinking of doing business with was Kennedy and Fiddlerman. Guess who is number one on my short list now? 😀

I decided to relate this story on Piano World. I did not name the spammer, but I might have accidentally mentioned the Fiddlerman name.. 😀
