These are the people that MAKE KCBS possible, make us feel like you want us there and want us to have fun.
They tried having a band. Music was so loud pretty much everyone left. Folks don't care about music at somthing like this. They want to be able to carry on a conversation and visit with friends and congratulate winners and trade contest entries they may have won in the raffle.
