With the recent passing of Al Limberg - truly one of the most accomplished, dedicated, and giving linchpins of the Great Lakes Bay musical community - we have lost not only a first-rate sound technician, but an individual that cared about the artists and the people that supported those artists within the community.
As I wrote last issue, the simple truth is that Al had a sense of engagement that felt incumbent to bring power, coloration, and depth to whatever talent or voice took to the stage And he carried those values through with his personal commitment to any artist struggling to make a difference in our world.
On Sunday, December 4th, a Special Memorial Concert for Al will be held at The Prime Event Center, 1201 Washington Avenue in Bay City. This will give us all a chance to celebrate the man who did so much for so many.
