I’m pleased to announce that the world-famous “Magic Bus” will be available for you to see and hear at The Home Entertainment Show Newport Beach, or "T.H.E. Show Newport" for short, at the Hilton Hotel in Irvine, CA, on May 30 through June 1, 2014, inclusive (www.theshownewport.com).

One of the many highlights of T.H.E. Show Newport includes the informative series of seminars, delivered by industry experts, about exciting topics in high-end audio. I’ve been selected to give a presentation about the Magic Bus entitled, Too much, Magic Bus! A historical retrospective of milestones in mobile audio.

I cordially invite you to discover how the Magic Bus revolutionized an industry and bridged the chasm that formerly existed between mobile and home audio. Please refer to the syllabus below.

Title:
Too much, Magic Bus! A historical retrospective of milestones in mobile audio.

Produced and presented by:
Jon Whitledge

Times:
Saturday, May 31, 2014, noon to 1:00 p.m.
Sunday, June 1, 2014, 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Location:
Hilton Hotel, outdoors at T.H.E. Car Show

Description:
Robert Harley, Editor-in-Chief of the abso!ute sound® magazine, described the Magic Bus, a Mercedes Sprinter van containing a mobile audio system without rival, as “The world’s best car stereo”. Mr. Harley continued, “The design, construction, passion, and dedication that went into the Magic Bus are unprecedented, and it showed in the sound quality. The system had effortless dynamics, very high resolution of low-level detail, and tremendous timbral fidelity, throwing a soundstage that rivaled that of a well-set-up home system.”

Three years after its completion, the Magic Bus has achieved unprecedented acclaim by industry experts and musicians. Jon Whitledge will present a historical retrospective highlighting the milestones associated with creation of the Magic Bus, and share rare, unreleased, photographs of several of the more than 250 musicians who have autographed the Magic Bus, including Christian McBride, Dave Weckl, Victor Wooten, Patricia Barber, Nathan East, Gordon Goodwin, Gary Burton, Hubert Laws, Joshua Bell, Mike Garson, Jeff Hamilton, Anne Bisson, Nat Adderley, Jr., Benny Golson, and many more!

I'll be there! Be sure to check out the rest of the show too. I've been to C.E.S. numerous times, the Stereophile shows back in the day, the RMAF, and T.H.E. Show. The latter two are consistently my favorites. Just a nice relaxed vibe.
