Longtime Smooth Jazz fan and loyal listener Tom Campeggio just got back from his weekend at the beautiful Osthoff Resort. He sent us this note:
Well, it was a great weekend at the Osthoff Resort. The music, food, wine were all very good. The Rick Braun/Richard Elliot was rocking, shall we say. Had some people dancing in the aisles, or up and pointing their fingers to the sky with the music. Both Richard and Rick mentioned about their CDs, so during the concert I snuck down and bought all three of them they had brought along. The BWB, Summer Horns, which I did not know Richard was on and then the one CD they both made together in 2007, the R N R one. The Steve Cole show was nice as well, although Nancy preferred the night before. We got to the hotel about 7:00pm as we stopped in the Milwaukee area to get dinner on the way. It really was a nice time and can’t thank you enough again for this.

They're already making plans for the 2015 event. Plan on attending next year. It's definitely worth the drive from Chicago!
