    Just wanted to say hi! I'm Mike's (BigDawg around here) son. It'll be my first time at Polkfest and I'm quite excited for it! If anyone will still be around on Sunday, coincidentally, the group I am a FOH engineer for called the RockNRoll Chorus will be performing at the Hard Rock in the Inner Harbor. It's a one-off date (we're actually from New Jersey) and the timing couldn't have been better in facilitating my ability to go to Polkfest.

    Psyched to see HQ and everyone else!

    I apologize in advance and you will never be the same after one of these.....physically or mentally. It's a horrifying experience. Especially if Jstas is in Zombie projectile vomiting mode again....it was very close to the movie 21 Days.

    You forgot that blood clotting stuff they give out for combat Troy.....we'll need a LOT of them. I'm going to be providing IV's of Saline for anyone not able to hang with the old timers. A Gallon of Soju??!! You better keep Al away from that or I'll have to walk him into reality again.

    John, Don't be a ****.....just bring your **** down here and enjoy yourself....good gracious you fool.

    I'm out, had to cancel the Hotel Res. today. Really not happy about this one; wife off to Chicago again, aging parents etc. And unlike a lot of the chorus above, I've got a teenage daughter I have to parent (it's amazing just how many of the main guys here are either "empty nesters" or don't have any kids?). I know you'll all have a great time and won't even notice yours truly is not there. Just kidding!

    Have a great time!

We do everything from Seperate Ways - Journey, Home Sweet Home - Motley Crue, and Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi to a mashup of Free Ride - Edgar Winter & Long Train Runnin' - Doobie Brothers with some current pop/rock stuff thrown in too. Very cool. Here's a link to a free download from out new album from our site: http://rocknrollchorus.com/freedownload

    Hey, on that note, seriously try and get autographs from everyone you see. It doesn't matter if they work for HR or not, make them feel special for one day and ask for an autograph on some Polk literature or whatever you have handy. It will make them feel good and contribute to our grass roots adventure. OR ask to get a picture with them.

    Having been one of those under-appreciated HR guys for many tears before retiring, I would like very much to meet the HR folks at Polk. Will they be at Polkfest?
