I've noticed that on occation we get someone posting here who really "knows their stuff" by dint of having been in the music business for some time. Some of the names we recognize; many we don't. People like Alphie, David Hattner, Larry Liberson, Gregory Smith, or, in the case of one I had to look up since his postings were so lucid, John Moses (I apologize to those people I missed - please post a bio!). I asked John to send a short bio to me so I could share.
I'm actively looking into changing this software over to a different BBoard format so people can have a "profile" where you can keep this kind of information, but I have to make sure I can do a data conversion so we don't lose all the postings we already have. If only I had a week of uninterrupted time ... ;^)
Anyway, here's some info about John. I strongly encourage any other working professionals (including repair, mouthpiece, barrel, etc. people) to post a short bio so we can see where they're coming from when they answer in this forum. Please put "Short bio - [name] in the title.
In this one case a little self-promotion is allowed :^)
