" I would like to thank all who attended the 2007 show, making it my best show yet. The addition of the live performances in the lower level was well received. We had over 250 attendees, 30 exhibitors, and gave away over 50 door prizes and giveaways!

 
  I would like to extend my appreciation to our special guests: The Richie Hart Trio with Joe Corsello, Larry Levine, Jack Lawton, and especially William F. Ludwig III.  
 

We also enjoyed the surprise visits from Bob Gatzen, and Roger Earle of Foghat.

Many, many thanks to Yamaha Drums, Sabian Cymbals, and Regal Tip Sticks for sponsoring Larry Levine. Also DW Drums and Zildjian Cymbals for sponsoring The Richie Hart Trio with Joe Corsello. I greatly appreciate the efforts of all the first class people at the companies that provided the items for the door prizes and give-aways."
