“It was a fantastic show Jeff Taylor!” Peggy Murray, April 2016

“I just wanted to follow up and thank you for another great show! I rocked out the Denver Open, the Northern and the Southern this year. They were all great experiences but it was refreshing for a chill, laid back vibe at the Southern with great support from all athletes and sponsors.” Kelli Chiri, April 2016

“Still can’t get over how much fun I had!”  Maddie Maz, May 2015
