Ventures Fan Fest / Re: 2016 Fanfest....it's a wrap!
« Last post by tabalt11 on June 01, 2017, 11:10:07 am »
Thanx Walt for posting this!    TRUE, it's the 'latest' we ever received a review but
'for me,' the timing couldn't be 'more perfect.'   WHY?   'Cause we're merely months
away from our 9th such gathering of 'stalwart' Ventures fans & reading this not only puts
'our regulars' in more of a 'feel good' mood but also reaches out 'wonderfully' to all our other
members who haven't yet 'experienced' the sheer enjoyment this annual twelve hour get-together
brings to those who like us are 'truly committed to continuing the legacy of 'the biggest selling & most
popular instrumental band in the history of recorded music!'

Ventures Fan Fest / 2016 FanFest Review by Luke Griffin
« Last post by wstagner 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.
