Dear Friends, A year and a half ago, our hearts were aching as we made the hard decision to cancel our 2020 show. Back then, we somehow imagined that as a country, we could band together and transcend COVID-19, and our lives could return to normal. We hoped we could ride out a year in isolation and emerge healthy and ready to gather again. Here at RMAF, we spent the year improving our business by producing new room layouts with all the outlets marked and created a handbook to guide exhibitors as they learned yet again to navigate their exhibitor accounts. We imagined ourselves enthusiastically greeting our audio industry friends in a few weeks, and we’ve held onto that dream in spite of our nervous fears and scary news reports.nnEven though some parts of the United States are fully open, the number of people contracting the virus, and the number of deaths attributed to it are still rising, and the CDC is projecting an even more deadly Lambda wave this fall. We are frightened on behalf of our friends in the audio industry on many levels. The very worst thing that we can envision is for someone to fall ill because they came to our show, whether as an exhibitor, a journalist, an attendee, or a volunteer. Good health is a precious gift, and we are learning that although recovery is possible, the residual effects of COVID-19 and its variants can be profound, and we are unwilling to risk even one case. Up until now, we have held onto the possibility that our October show could be produced as planned. After reading and listening to the news concerning the Coronavirus pandemic, and watching the cancellation of numerous other shows, we no longer hold that hope. In spite of our initial optimism, we have read and listened to all of your thoughtful comments and then looked at the numbers and made the difficult decision to cancel RMAF 2021.nnThis has been a wrenching decision, and along with it comes the added impact of deciding that we are no longer able to envision RMAF as our heart's delight. RMAF was our founder Al Stiefel’s dream, and we’ve done our best to nurture his vision for 12 years, along with help from the Colorado Audio Society and all our volunteers from around the world. Now, we are off to new adventures! And so it is with both sadness and anticipation for the future, we announce that the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest as we have all known it will be no more. It has been our very great pleasure to have served this community of audio professionals. We have learned so much from you! Thank you for 17 years of friendship and support. It has meant more than you can possibly imagine.nnWe offer you our heartiest wishes for good health and great happiness.n nYour Friends,nMarjorie and MarcienMarjorie Baumert and Marcie MillernRocky Mountain International Audio Festn303-393-7918
Come to Denver for #RMAF2021!
The Rocky Mountain International Audio Fest IS happening this October 2021 at Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center! #RMAF2021 is NOT canceling so squash that rumor bug and spread the good word by sharing this post!
Herbie Hancock's music will be featured at Classic Album Sundays listening room at #RMAF2021! You must visit their listening room. Kick back, listen to a story and enjoy the music!nnClick to read the entire blog by Barbie Bertischbut here's a snippet: "Head Hunters was the name of the group (spelled as one word) and Herbie Hancock’s twelfth studio album, released in 1973. Its members were Hancock (keyboards), Bennie Maupin (saxophone, clarinet), Harvey Mason (drums), Paul Jackson (bass), and Bill Summers (percussion). Its masterful blend of jazz, funk, and rock made this an immediate crossover hit, charting high on the Billboard 200 and becoming the first jazz album to go platinum. The album featured four long-form compositions: “Chameleon”, the revisited “Watermelon Man”, “Sly”, and “Vein Melter”. Its laid-back, groovy sound embodied what became more widely known as jazz-funk and brought in R&B fans into the realm of jazz and improvisation, and vice versa."
RIP Charlie Watts 🙏🏼
