This is going to be a fabulous event. Thanks for posting this, Bruce!

Rich Brydle and Cold Shott and the Hurricane Horns have been very involved in getting this event together. Kudos to them for an awesome accomplishment.

They played for the AMEHOF Induction Ceremony After Party at Cooperstown and blew the roof off the place. Just amazing. Jammed with Riopelle, Tubes and everyone you can imagine.

And the sound produced by Dune (pronounced Duh-neywas) for the event was STELLAR! No doubt the same will be true for this upcoming event. Well worth coming down to the Valley to see! If the sound sucks, the rest of it does too...and this guy is amazing.
