I am writing on behalf of the Athens Rewind Committee to express our sincere thanks to the Athens community
past and present for the support, enthusiasm, and warmth we experienced during this event. Thanks to the many friends
who offered their help in the form of time, money, manual labor and moral support, without whom the weekend would not have come together as it did. We are especially grateful to Joey Tatum
, who not only offered up the Little Kings Club
for the weekend, but also graciously handed us the keys all hours of the day and night so we could work on our setup for opening night. Special thanks go out to Velena Vego
and Barrie Buck
from the 40 Watt Club
, who met with us on many occasions prior to the event, offering both their help and fresh ideas about the music, food and venues for the weekend.
We are also grateful to Troy Aubrey
and Jeff Montgomery
, Jeff Hannan
at LS Designs
, and Keith Bennett
for their invaluable assistance in preparing for this event. Thanks to Julie Phillips
at Athens Banner-Herald
and Lee Smith
for writing wonderful articles on our event, and to Pete McCommons
for his positive attitude following the event. Special thanks also to all the volunteers
and to those who contributed photographs, movies, deejay time and performance time.
In short, we were overwhelmed with the kindness and support which emanated from all Athenians involved in Athens Rewind. To everyone who supported us before, during and after the weekend itself, we offer our most sincere gratitude and heartfelt thanks.
Athens Rewind President
