THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

A belated “Thank You” to everyone who participated in the 2010 Show! We had exhibitors who traveled from Alabama, California, Florida, and Ohio. And once again all the clinics and presentations were very well received. *Our Best Wishes go out to Jean and Joe Morello, as we all hope for a speedy recovery for Joe.

And I would like to personally thank Joe Corsello for helping me secure John Riley's services to fill-in for Mr. Morello, on less than a week's notice. And of course a thank you to John Riley,
for giving us much more than we expected!

Finally, thanks to all the Drum Lovers who continue to turn out, because with out you coming, none of this would be able to continue! Speaking of which:

I would like to thank everyone who attended and participated in the April 2009 CONNECTICUT DRUM SHOW. This was the best show yet, with attendence continuing to grow, all the dealer spaces filled, and a full day of clinics and presentations.

My appreciation goes out to the regular exhibitors who continue to support the show, and the new dealers who joined us this year. Special thanks to Gary Asher, Jack lawton, Larry Levine, Bobby Rondinelli, Jeff Ocheltree, and William F Ludwig III for their travels. Everyone enjoyed the presentations and meeting them.
