Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Bean Paste

I can’t tell you how long I have had my eye on Vanilla Bean Paste. That’s why when I came across an advertisement from Nielsen-Massey looking for someone to try the product and review it, I was on it like sticky on candy.

Brooklyn based MANTRA PERCUSSION visited a Lowe’s hardware store in Alexandria, Virginia to perform an excerpt of Michael Gordon’s “Timber” on six two-by-fours.
