    I have been to the Boot camp in the past back in 2007 I believe. Adam Nitti, Doug Wimbish, Gary Willis & Gerald Veasley were the instructors. We had a master Class presented by Scott Ambush of Spyro Grya which was just amazing!! I had a really great time but I just haven't been able to get back. I see Chico Huff is in the line up this year. Thats very exciting.
    I'm familiar with Chico through an old BET Jazz show called Studio Jams where he was always a great player. This years event Sounds like another blast!

    In for my 3rd year as well.

    Just a bump since a deadline is approaching:
    N.B. :
    • Standard Registration – $499 (September 20, 2015–February 13, 2016)
    • Late Registration – $549 (after February 13, 2016)
    $50 to be saved if you sign up by Saturday !!

    IMO - so worth it.
    I learn enough in 3 days to hold me through to another year.
    I'm still working on stuff I learned last year...

    Always a great bunch of people.

    Be aware - as of this week, not only are there no event-rate roomes at the Crowne Plaza, there are no Friday-Saturday rooms.
    I'm booked at the Hilton about 3 blocks away...
