    Hey Guys. We are in NYC siting near our precious Belkin lava lamp wondering how you all were. Lo and behold – when we googled, you have a website.
    And it looks like you’re both having fun. Email us to connect. We miss you.
    Stay well. (PS. We have 3 grandchildren now…..whew getting old.)

    Hey Mike…your killing me! I was looking at some Live Nation stuff and wanted to see what you are up to so I stumbled upon your site. It is great and good to see that you Jules and your families are doing well.
    I have not talked to you guys in a long time. We did business during the best time of the music industry and the bantering was second to none. You guys where one of my favorites despite all the lopsided deals.
    I left A-B a few months ago after the InBev buyout . After grinding for 30 years it is nice to spend more time with my family. We are in the process of moving from Stl to Madison. It is our favorite and my youngest son just completed his first year at the UW. My other 2 are also in college so it is a busy and expensive time. After chilling a little longer I will get after my next big gig as I have way to much left in the tank.
    Give my best to Jules, Mike Jr., Barry and the crew and hopefully our paths will cross again down the road.
    Take Care, GG
