Strobe can do to help out in the future please don't hesitate to ask.

"Thank you for an organization like EARS.
Strange how the deeper I get into recording, the more I'm looking to pick people's minds
for knowledge and ideas. To think there is an organization this city where a group of
people actually encourage that kind of conversation on a monthly basis is cause for celebration.
And your list of previous special guest speakers is off the charts.
Thanks for the knowledge and letting me feel welcome."

"A huge shout out to my EARS (Engineering And Recording Society of Chicago)
family for "officially" being recognized by Rahm Emanuel & the City of Chicago for their awesomeness
(in this case, re: the Chicago Music Summit). Everyone involved in this organization knows the
vital role that EARS plays in the music and greater creative community. It is satisfying to see it
being officially recognized by the hometown. That being said, if you are not hip to EARS -
you are now and have no excuse. All are invited to join in the fun. A very special shout-out to
Reid Hyams, Blaise Barton, John Christy, Danny Leake, Eric Roth for continuing to make magic happen. "
