Congratulations to the 2014 Dobro® Player of the Year - Phil Leadbetter!
I'm listening to Sirius Radio's "Track By Track" presentation of Uncle Phil's new album, The Next Move. Phil has been through some serious health issues (Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2011) and is currently facing additional trials, but right now he's doing what he does best: painting a big smile on my face with his music! In addition to his chops on the dobro (his intonation and timing are simply amazing), Phil knows how to put albums together. He brings material and performers together as well as anyone, and the results (including Instrumental Album of the Year award for Slide Effects in 2005) are top notch.read more »
I thought I'd start a discussion with some tips and tricks I've picked up from attending previous Resosummits. Please add your advice and experience as you like.
- Talk to everybody! I haven't been bitten once at Resosummit.
- Stay hydrated. There will be water machines in the lobby and elsewhere.
- If you need a break, there are plenty of dining options a very short walk away. I like the San Antonio Taco Company because it's fast and cheap. The Mellow Mushroom has good pizza.
- Diagonally across the street from the Station Inn is the Turnip Truck Natural Market, sort of a Whole Foods type grocery and deli. They have very good food and are a good choice for a fast meal before the Station Inn (unless you prefer the pizza at the Station Inn). There's also a frozen yogurt shop in that same complex.
