It was a very exciting day for me.  I was asked to speak to the CMO [Chief Marketing Officer] Club in New York City on our corporate philanthropy.  I asked my friend Jimmy Vivino to drop in, where I surprised him with the first pre-production Firebird

X with ready to ship hardware specifications.

 

Jimmy helped us a great deal in an early beta test panel, with many difficult requests.  This product has these and more including the color he asked for.

 

The video is about 12 minutes and is a combination of my explaining the product and some great industry banter.  At the end it my presentation (very short) and Jimmy’s heartfelt comments on philanthropy and what music in the schools meant to him personally.

 

I hope everyone enjoys, follow the link…
