March 19, 2019 "I had the pleasure and honor of producing the Hal Blaine Day in Hal's native Holyoke. We performed 7 songs with him, some he hadn't played in over 20 years. He never missed a beat and carried the show between songs with great stories about each one. Such stature and class, a rare combination. I will cherish our friendship and the many conversations we had since that day...and because his great drumming is heard round the world everyday, he will always be with us. Through his music I became a better musician, and by knowing him, a better person.... " - Bill Lettang (Chicopee, MA)
