I see I am indeed on the attendees list

Thank you so much for the moniker, Mr. Douglas.

ST, Despite what Andrew has written, I would appreciate not being referred to as "Big Schwaz" as the term, while not pejorative, could be construed as false advertising.

Addressing me as Charles seems to work best. Chaz is also acceptable. My full name is:
William Charles Baird Mitchell. You could also pick from that...

Now you can call me Will
Or you can call me Bill
Or you can call me Chuckie
Or you can call me Mitchie
Or you can call me Chaz
(often I'm a spaz)
Or you can call me Bairdy
(But I never have liked Charlie)
Or you can call me CB
Or you can call me wcbm
Butcha doesn't hasta call me Big Schwaz!

(Sorry, it's late, it's Friday, etc.)
I always assumed that Guy, being from Belgium, was from the French-speaking part of that country. But I was wrong. He's from the Flemish-speaking part.

Hence, his name is pronounced something like ball-BAR.

Naturally, we can have him correct this during the conference.

Another update: Sorry for the confusion here, but I have been able to secure a replacement attendee to accompany me at the conference. My brother, Murray Johnson, is a Broadcast Engineer with CBC in Toronto, Canada and will handle the technical side for me as he is an audio engineer as well as a guitarist/keyboardist/mediocre drummer (sibling rivalry being what it is!). See you there.
Hi KeyWest

Ahhh Mississauga, I remember it well.

Here's a link to the latest version of the agenda. I think you will find that the topics have a pretty tight focus on the performing musicians' approach and experience of the System.

Bose has had events for DJ/KJs in the past and maybe something like that would be a better fit for you.

I think Chuck-at-Bose co-ordinated the last one, and he might be good contact for this.
Hi all,
With many regrets it doesn't look like I will be able to make the trip for the fall conference. Between travel for my day job, just moving into a new house, and the holiday gig season starting to kick in, I just can't break away even for a few days. (My family wouldn't mind seeing me once in awhile too!) Please send some of the vibe my way and keep me posted on the next one.
I'm looking forward to reading all about it on the forum soon.
Thanks all. I'll miss you guys too! Give me enough lead time on the next one and maybe I can come up with some special edition conference "Groove Shades". If we do it in Colorado, I may be able to bring the whole Groove Merchant horn section too. How many beachballs do you need ST?
Unfortunately, I too will not be able to make it. Some resources changes have just occurred at my job, and I'm one of the few people being kept on. So instead of 6 of us, there will be 3 by the end of the month, and I won't have the coverage I thought.

I'm bummed, but I'm sure there will be another chance. Have fun everybody....

Hello everyone!
Right now I am trying to put together a list of the full names of everyone coming to the conference (including guests) for the tour we will be doing. Please email me at mandy_tonelli@bose.com with the information.
Thanks and I look forward to seeing you soon!

Nick Ward, our amazing stage tech for The Lineman, will be with us on Sunday and Monday.

Nick's the best L1™ stage tech I've ever worked with. He's passionate about the technology. He's a fine artist and is just finishing his undergraduate work. He lives across the street from our Cliff, and they love cars together.


I'd LOVE it if Nick would help us get the best sound...I'm just a user who has gotten sound I like by mucking around. Independent ears are worth their weight in unobtanium!

BTW...I've talked to my bandmate Charles, and we're planning on getting there earlyish on Sunday to unload gear...that way, systems will be available the whole time.
Wow, the conference sounds like it's going to be Super fantastic!!

How fun it will be to hang with so many great players & fellow Bose-'s...

Hey guys, the Joseph reporting in ...

Sorry I haven't been around for a while... with so many musical late night gigs & myriads of women, afternoons have become the biologically rhythmic equivalent of morning for moi' (okay, okay,,, that's more info then you needed to know...:-)

Can you believe this... my first Friday off all year, happens to be Friday the 13th... !! Eek

The Bose-O's East conference sounds totally wonderful... Once more, ST is so incredibly on top of it... Curriculum has to be his middle name Smile It's an honor to know ya ST... that's for sure!!

As you know by now, there's no way on earth I can make it.... but I will be there in Spirit to the Max!!

Great Wuv, za Joseph

(here's a photo that has really nothing to do with anything... just thought I'd share a diverson..)
Hi Joseph,

Glad to hear from you - sorry it took awhile to get back - been on a pilgrimage.

That agenda is coming together nicely - but this time around I've just been enjoying from the sidelines as it has taken shape under Ken's gentle guidance.

I wish you could be there.

Thanks for the photo. You can pretty much bet that the person in the boat is not online.
