Default B.I.G.IV Sept 1 thru 3! WIN A $15,000 guitar!

It is going to be a busy year here in the B.I.G. household, but not too B.I.G. to host B.I.G. IV Sept. 1st thru the 3rd!

This year promises to be the best ever. The concerts are through the roof with Frog and Toad, Tony McManus for a return visit and none other than Christie Lenee, one of the hottest players going right now. I will do more bios on these folks later.

Luthier list, several repeats and several new, a blend of established and up and coming stars, 5 luthiers making their B.I.G. debut!

Thanks fellas! I think it is an outstanding line up, but nice to hear from others!

Doug, we will be having demos and workshops, Christie and Tony will be doing workshops for sure. I will add more details soon.

Not sure I can make it this year. Have to check with the rest of the family. They may be pressing for a family trip not wrapped around guitars. Weíll see as we get closer.

Yowzah--what a lineup!

You know we'll be there--can't wait to do it all again!

Nothing better than primo guitars, great music, seeing old friends, and making new ones!

Yeah man! Super lineup. My plan is to be there. I'll even pick Tony up from the airport if you want. Christie too for that matter. So looking forward to it.

Say it ain't so, Mike--it wouldn't be the same without you!

But understandable--you do have to do what's best for the family.
