Tom Conklin

Let me just add that this is a process, and it this all won’t happen overnight. It will take a lot of work, communication, support and awareness efforts from everyone involved. We all have to be here for each other. GO see each others shows. When you see an original band out there that you didn’t know existed… talk up BOOM and send them our way. Finally we need to keep the faith. It might look at times like nothing is happening but there is always something happening behind the scenes to keep the ball rolling. Stay active in the forums. Stay active on the BOOMblog. Stay active in the community!
