Lead singer of the group, Arnel Pineda, is Filipino and is taking charge in the recovery efforts to help his country any way he can. Read the article appearing in Classic Rock Magazine. Kudos to Journey for stepping up and playing a vital role in these efforts to support their Bandmate Arnel and the Philippines!

Below the Line goes to Las Vegas

Hey, it’s CES! World-wide coming together, the International Consumer Electronics Show and Event City is in the thick of it. From Mobile Technology, Home Electronics, Audio, Digital Imaging and Wireless, there are many areas of convergance that relate to Event City readers and Event Planners, Corporate Buyers and Travel professionals. I know that the film production area is very interested in Wireless, networking, and of course all areas of image capture. Think about what’s used on a film set everyday: image and display technology, wireless transmissions, digital photography, audio, video and of course film. So ok, CES might not go into film, but in ALL other areas! We will show you what’s new and interesting over the next few days. Additionally, we’ll be looking at products for our newly launched Event City Emporium. I, as Mobile Mike, will have my trusty DVR (digital voice recorder) and digital camera to bring you interviews and news from the various CES locations…and maybe even a party or two. You’ll get a first hand glimpse at some of the “behind the scenes” action starting as early as Saturday Jan. 5th!!

This show brings out the stars, and folks like Yoko One (on the John Lennon tour bus), Kevin Cosner, Mary J. Blige, Michael Douglas, all will be on hand at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas. We will also cover the Bill Gates Keynote on Sunday. We’re talking January 6th to the 10th, so keep your eyes on our show- the Event City show if you can’t go and we’ll put you in the midst of the action. See you in Vegas! (and Happy New Year from Event City) ///  Michael Handler, editor
