"As we embark on our 25th year so many great memories will be shared amongst us and with so many of our friends around the world. Twenty-five years is a milestone to be sure. Maybe mile marker is more fitting. One thing is certain - to be looking ahead after twenty-five years of making music with your friends is a dream job indeed." - Rich Vogel
