Ventures Fan Fest / Re: 2017 VENTURES FAN FEST- It's A Wrap!
« on: October 26, 2017, 04:41:45 pm »
Thanx Jeff for your kind words on behalf of yourself & the band.   What made me 'feel
especially' good after this year's gathering was hearing from BOB SPALDING a week
later giving 'all of us' a big thumbs up for another fine effort.   We did have a few
blunders that took place throughout the day & I've since 'huddled' with both
WALT & BERNIE, heard them out & jotted down a half dozen tips going
forward.   That's right, next year we'll incorporate several changes
'into the mix' in our quest to get 'fest day' nearly perfect in
'everyone's' minds!

Hey gang- looks as tho I logged into the site as WALT but trust me he'd give both above
posts his absolute approval!

Ventures Fan Fest / 2016 FanFest Review by Luke Griffin
« on: June 01, 2017, 07:20:15 am »
With The Ventures International Fan Fest 2017 starting to come to life, I wanted to share the experience that I had in 2016. I attended the 2016 Fest with a good friend of mine, Evan Caverninha.

Evan and I arrived at the hotel the day before the Ďfest to a lobby packed full of Ventures fans and fest jammers. Everyone was hanging out and getting to know one another before the pre-fest dinner that evening.

The pre-fest dinner at Ichiban restaurant was a perfect way for everyone to get to know each other. The food was great and the conversation was even better. Evan and I got to sit with a couple of fans and had a really nice time sharing a meal.

The next day, we headed over to the fest and what can I say? Tom really out does himself putting this thing together. Itís a perfectly executed day of music, food, and fun. As much as I enjoyed watch the bands perform and even taking the stage for a few songs myself, to me, that is all secondary to the conversations I had with the fans. Getting to meet and talk to the attendees was my absolute favorite part of the day. Their dedication to The Ventures and the music is truly inspiring.

Tom really has created something special in The Ventures International Fan Fest and Iím excited to be attending this year.
