Great video!! Please make one this weekend at the Ann Arbor, it will be the first time, maybe ever, that artist didn't sweat. Now I am sorry for not attending. After last year I just couldn't commit one more year of suffering.

No harm, no foul Connie. I'd hate to get over-exposed. It was good visiting with you, I hope to see you again somewhere down the road.

and Jay -- I'm so sorry I missed you... geez. Hopefully catch you again at a show and get your ideas too.

This was fun to do. I get a little overwhelmed at the shows, really want to see the art, really want to see my friends, really want to make a video, really want to find helpful info to share ... usually come home exhausted and worried about missed opportunities.

This is great, Connie.  Good job.  It's interesting to hear some different reasons besides sales for artists to like particular shows.  Thanks!
