First Expo - Certainly not the last!
by Allen Krehbiel
At the prompting of numerous friends in the Denver area, I attended my first DSE this year in Boulder. I'll just start off by saying I'll be attending this Expo for as long as Jim and Jack keep it going, which I hope includes many years to come.
Enjoying breakfast with Walt Aldridge and participating in a late-night guitar circle with Larry Beaird are just a sample of the types of situations that present themselves at this event. That is above and beyond the guaranteed ears and attention from some of the industry's top professionals during the intimate critique sessions, the pro panel discussions, the attendee showcases, and the final pro-songwriter concert, all of which were extremely informative and inspirational.
After exchanging cards with many of the folks I struck up conversations with, I came home with a pocket full of new relationships that I look forward to fostering.
Thanks so much for making this event available in the Denver area. I thought the Omni was an excellent venue, and I hope it works out for next year.
