Dear Subscriber:

We are looking forward to APEX 2016 in Las Vegas catching up with friends and business associates. It is a great place to learn and connect with others.

I was mesmerized watching Los Lobos perform with a Mexican dance troupe. They were unplugged and the bass player was wielding a Guitarrón, a large 6-stringed bass instrument used in Mariachi bands.Good stuff!
