You're right, Wally, it is. I think of Mesa as a suburb of Phoenix. Not sure if the locals do too, or not...

A fine time here indeed. Great spending time and chatting with you Jim. See you next year too. Best of luck with the Ronstat project. A worthy cause for sure.

So many great players and some great surprises. Particular highlights for me were getting to hear, in their first-ever steel show performances, Christopher Woitach, Steve "Catt" Cattermole, and Paul Haaker. All three knocked it out of the park, in completely different ways, but each with excellent finesse and musicality. Other highlights were Doug Livingston's set which included a surprise rendition of Puccini's Nessun Dorma, with a guest operatic tenor singing the role made famous by Luciano Pavarotti! (I'm sorry I don't recall his name but perhaps someone can add it to this thread.). And I think we all sat quite transfixed listening to 14-year old Jacob King, after playing only a few years (3?), turn in a totally pro-level performance, with outstanding tone, control, taste and even band-leading skills. This young man is definitely one to watch as he will be a big part of the future of steel guitar. All in all, another great SWSGA show and I'm honored to have been part of it since it began 15 years ago. Many thanks to Troy, Peggy, Fred, Ray, John Hench, and all the others behind the scenes who work hard all year to make this an ongoing success.

It's reassuring to see there are some great new faces picking up the torch, so to speak. With all due respect to the greats who have "Gone Home," time marches on.... Cool
