Bob Merkin

  Hi Bob  - I saw (and heard) the Welte at the annual Paderewski Piano Festival held each spring in Paso Robles, California.. I think it was three years ago.  You could have heard a pin drop when the auditorium lights went down and "Debussy" started to play.  I got a mega case of chills.  Afterwards we were invited to come up on the stage and "kick its wheels".  Pretty amazing..
