Pat said: "Its also an older group, and as such we won't be around forever. Some who used to be regulars are already gone. This might be the last time a concerted effort is made to gather BIAB forum friends together in one place!"

I find myself slowly leaving the stage. I've already outlived so many famous artist friends. There are so few of us left. Perhaps that is why I love being remembered by Danny C; Josie Cooper; Summer Russell; and the many who haven't forgotten me.

I take this opportunity to thank them publicly.

Donny

BTW, Summer is visiting me on Friday, the 20th, and she will harmonize with my old vocals of Lightfoot covers. It will be webcast from my nursing home on stretjelly.com Time TBA.

PS: The 4th Annual HootenDonny will be webcast on Krue TV from my nursing home on March 10th. Please join us at 3pm Central Time. Danny and lovely wife, Linda, drive over 900 miles to entertain us old pharts for free then he donates 100% of his tips ( it's a busking venue ) to veterans.

speaking of BIAB forum get-togethers....

I just got back from having lunch with BOTH Fogle brothers... Jim and Charlie! Charlie's wife attended a seminar in Winston-Salem, so while she did her thing, Jim, Charlie and I hung out in a local restaurant and annoyed the poor little waitress who served us. ;-)

I set up a video camera and let it run while we talked. If anything can be heard above the background noise, I may post it.

I find both of these gentlemen to be very smart, engaging and fun to spend time with. It was my second visit with Charlie, and third visit with Jim.

I look forward to meeting more forum folk at Lake George NY this coming July, when we gather to hear Matt Finley's annual concert!
Speaking of which, Matt just emailed me to say he'll be making more information available soon about things to do at Lake George and the surrounding area. I'll post it here as soon as I have it.

Time to bump this thread back to the top...

Hard to imagine that this BIAB forum get-together and Matt Finley concert is now only about 4 months away! We started to plan this well over a year in advance because we learned from past attempts that people plan their vacations about a year in advance. So trying to plan an event that is less than a year away automatically risks losing people who have already booked their vacation time elsewhere.

The next 4 months will fly by pretty quickly I think. It will be interesting to see who all shows up!

Nobody has taken me up on my offer to share my accommodations yet, so if you want to come on the spur of the moment, there's a room available for somebody.

BUMP!!

Today marks just 2 months until the long-awaited concert at LAKE GEORGE NY by one of the forum's faithful friends: MATT FINLEY and his band!

Since we first started talking about this, life has changed the plans of some who originally expressed an interest in attending. At this point I don't have a comprehensive awareness of who all will be there. I know for sure that Matt, Mario and I will be there.

As stated in previous posts about this, the room I rented can hold more than one person, so if you can make it to Matt's concert, you're welcome to share my accommodations (no charge...first come first served)

If you've ever entertained the idea of meeting some forum friends, this might be the last organized effort to make something happen.

If you're still thinking about coming, please post something in this thread to let us know, as Matt has made arrangements for a hall that may be overkill if it ends up being just the 3 of us. If you don't like the idea of posting that you'll be away from home in a public forum, then please send Matt a PM to let him know.

It would be great to see any of you who are willing and able to come!

July 25, 2017

Thanks for the reminder, Pat, and we really appreciate all your efforts.

I made a deal with Pat that I would have my hands full producing the concert and hosting the band in the last few days leading to July 25, but until then, I'm happy to answer any questions and help any way I can.

I did reserve the community center building for Sunday through Tuesday, and I designated that as the concert's rain location. The building is in a quiet mountain location with a pond, has an excellent kitchen, and would be a great place to hang. However, if it looks like it's only a few people coming, then I would like to release that building and get some of my deposit back, because the building is in high demand for weddings and such. My cabin on the lake would be fine for just a few folks.

I grew up in Lake George and my wife Denise and I still live here as much as we can. It's one of the most beautiful places anywhere, in addition to all the various tourist attractions. It's also of great historical significance: what happened here is the reason we speak English in the USA.

I'm looking forward to meeting any of you. And Pat is a great guy; you'll love meeting him too.

I am staying in a family suite at the The Villas on Lake George for a week. They have picnic tables and a grill so if anyone wants we can cook hots and burgers and chat there.

We should find out how many are coming for sure. I'd hate to have Matt loose money on the convention center for only a few people.

Unfortunately, I'm not going to make it, as much as I want to. My cervical surgery ate up every bit of leave I have and I barely have enough to get two days off to go to my niece's wedding in Memphis in June.

I know everyone will have a blast; I'll be with you in spirit. I suspect it's going to be one heck of a jam session.

We have Pat and Mario (and Mario's wife). I'm cancelling the reservation for the community center on Tuesday.

Well, this will probably be the last time I mention this... but Matt Finley's concert at Lake George is exactly a month away, on July 25th! Anybody who discovers at the last minute that they are able to show up is welcome to share the room I rented, as it can accommodate more than one person. (If interested contact me for the dates I'll be there)

If you live somewhere between NC and NY, and the only thing keeping you from attending Matt's concert is transportation... shoot me a private message and I'll decide if it makes sense to swing by and pick you up. It would be nice to have a travel companion.

July looks like it will provide additional opportunities to meet some forum members! I won't mention any names, dates or locations... but you can expect to read about another meeting with forum friends in the not too distant future.

Thanks, Pat, for all you have done and are still doing.

I don't know if I ever mentioned this, but my concerts are funded by grants (and me) and are always free! No admission, not even any donations. So, if you come, I will buy your 'ticket' and if you don't like the music, I will refund double your purchase price! grin

ps we are prepared for rain or shine, but the end of July is the best weather all year at Lake George so the odds are good we will be outdoors by the lake.

If any of that made sense, please explain it to me, because I'm confused

I'll gladly echo all other responses.

SIDEBAR: I do expect to see lots of pics posted (somewhere anyway) to help us all attach names to each countenance present at the event.

Carry on....

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
