For some examples look up Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys and/or more currently the Hot Club of Cowtown…So mount up, it’s time to ride!

The Blues make you happy 🙂

We were able to listen, learn, and network with the who’s who of heavyweights moving mountains & shaking the bushes. Who shakes out will spring-board off of inspirational angels, philanthropists, trailblazers, power brokers, and promoters. The SC & Israel Collaboration adds an impressive boost of urgency for capturing influential genius; empowering skunkworks, mashups, and R&D; and fast tracking entrepreneurial innovation to fruition. The goals are over the top and the talks upfront and behind the scenes included Tikkun Olam: Stem Cells; composites; defense for mass-transportation; aerospace; sustainable water, land, seeds, energy; etc, etc. Don’t go to SC & Israel for oil…go there for brains. The brain-trusts, the muses, the magic, the history…there’s definitely something in the wellsprings worth sustaining.  APPLY NOW <–> the “Chosen Ones” will spearhead the SC-Israeli Delegation; will be the imminent shooting stars; will further brighten the SC & Israeli spotlight; and will share it with the world.  The more than gracious VIP leadership included Jonathan Zucker and Anita Zucker of InterTech; Tom Glaser of American-Israel Chamber of Commerce SE Region; Bill Mahoney of SCRA; Ray Greenberg’s associates from MUSC; Gal Nir of Scopus; Clemson; Charleston’s Jewish Federation (see more Jewish secular outreach); and many others…Mazol Tov.
