There are things that occur in life that define us. These moments can never be forgotten and they often occur through an opportunity that allows only a moment to make a decision with the understanding that with risk may come disappointment or the reward of something never expected.
This was one of these moments.
Very briefly, we attended the Monster Party at CES in Las Vegas last night, as press, and as luck may have it a mistake was made which upgraded our tickets and gave us an opportunity to see Earth, Wind and Fire along with special guest Sheila E, much closer than we should have.
As everyone moved forward to have a great time, we were fortunate to get to the right edge of the stage in the Paris Hotel Ballroom and within 20 feet of center stage. There was a hint that there may be a special guest. Near the end, our Associate Editor (and my beautiful wife of 25 years) observed that Stevie Wonder was standing backstage.
It was at that moment that an opportunity presented itself and I moved forward and, for the first time, identified myself as press and was allowed a spot directly in front of center stage.
Enjoy these shots folks because they hold a spot much more special than I ever believed they could.
Only a few piks and I know this isn’t SSD information but, well, its nice just to give all an inside look at CES and the Monster Party. More Piks to follow with special guests to include Colton B and New Era but we are off to our first appointment this morning at the Aria with Jessica and OCZ!! Heres one last shot.
A special thank you to Noel for putting on this event and allowing something that I could never have dreamed of.
