The festival takes place in Austin's Zilker Park in a big open field that has a backdrop of the city that hosts it.

This is my final installment about the 2nd annual Experience PRS Event in Stevensville, Maryland. One thing I need to add is what a great host Paul, his wife and his entire staff were. They really went out of their way to make everyone feel welcomed both at his house and at the PRS facility. As far as I know, none of the other big guitar manufactures put on a junket like this. (They should take a lesson from this!)
It’s amazing how in just over 20 years Paul has built such a giant of a company. It is evident that Paul and his employees are humble and down-to-earth and have not gotten too big for their britches. On a guitar note, the quality of the instruments and the workmanship continues to excel.
Check out this MP3 featuring various short clips of more of the event’s music performances.

Wow, is all I can say. Friday night and Saturday at Experience PRS was filled with more great music, great weather, and great fun. I must say that there was almost too much good stuff going at one time, I wished that I could have had myself cloned so that I could have been at more then one place at a time, so I could catch it all. However, since I could only be at one place at one time, I had to pick and choose. The good news is that I was able to see most of my favorites because many of the acts played repeatedly throughout the day.

Let me tell you about a couple of the performances. Bugs Henderson was very entertaining with his playing and his humor. Once again Johnny Hiland was beyond great. David Grissom had killer tone and was tasteful as ever. Mike Scott was ripping it up with his usual intensity and Al Dimeola made our jaws drop.  Check out this MP3 featuring various short clips of some of the event's music performances.

Here it is, a year has gone by and we are at the second annual Experience PRS. The event started off with a bang on Thursday night at a private party at Paul's house filled with artists, press folk, and many PRS dealers from the dealer network. Paul's high tech studio and the rest of the property were open for any of the guests to take in and observe while the atmosphere was filled with good food, and a friendly vibe. It's always good to see people from all different areas of the industry and different parts of the world come together for a common good.  After some great food and networking the music started and on this night, it was an acoustic set featuring Paul's new acoustic models, with special guest Ricky Skaggs. There was an amazing display of talent and humor from Ricky which translated into obvious appreciation to all that attended, capping off a great evening.
