My most sincere thanks are in order to all the people who made this event possible. It is hard to know where to start, but Ken Gregory, who helped set up, helped clean up, played some great guitar on several tunes, did the recording of this event and did the recording (and played a lot of guitar and brass parts) of all three CDs, obviously deserves special thanks and credit.
Vocalists Jeni Michelson and Rita Graham, whose talents and good vibes are infectious, added so much to the effort - you will hear more from them soon.
My friends Tommy Malcolm and James Rowell helped in the clean up until very late - they are great guys.
Randy Sekeres, your sommelier for the evening, helped in the planning, procured the food on the way to the event, provided the wine glasses, helped clean up, and in general offered good advice on all aspects. We're lucky to have him in the wine Meetup. His help was invaluable.
Vidya Rangaswamy, who manned the desk, performed a very important function and I thank him for that.
My neighbor and friend John Webb provided transportation for some very important guests (as is he), and manned the desk to relieve Vidya - thanks John.
And the wonderful musicians Paul Fallat, Gary Wilkins, and Sam Skelton make it happen - a special thanks to them.
And of course all of our attendees, without whom such an effort does not exist - I thank you all and look forward to the next time we can be together. T
