Greetings,

Below is a link for some highlight photos of Thursday's show. There are several steel guitar vendors along with many others here. It's a great opportunity to test drive some outstanding guitars, talk with the vendors and get your questions answered. There are many other vendors here with steel guitar accessories, amps, instructional materials, and much more.

As you can see by some of the photos, the talent is made up of some of the finest players around.

The show continues on Friday and Saturday and we hope to see ya there!!

Thanks for the photos. Wish I was there and out of this Ohio Valley winter storm. I'll just close my eyes and dream.
I sure miss me some good steel guitar shows too.

Looks like you're all having a great time.

Nice pictures. I know it would take a lot of time, but would be nice to names with pic's for those of us that don't know all the players. Thanks for the pic's. Wish I could be there.

Thanks for the pics b0b. Got a new recruit there on the Olympic? Gotta love kids with steel guitar interest.

BTW, how's the ear?

Still can't hear out of right ear, but no pain.

That kid was helping his mom at the jewelry booth next to us. His 10-year-old sister was more interested in steel than he was. Smile

Bill Tuason's pictures (link above) are great, BTW. Check them out.

There's hope for those kids. Their dad is staff drummer Dan Range. Laughing

Nice to chat with you b0b.

Thanks Bill - great photos
I think you work harder than most of the musicians (with the obvious exception of the house band). The rest of us only work for a set or two and you have to work all weekend!
Thanks again.
