A major part of the success of an audio/video showand, yes, based on my impressions of the first day of TAVES, it's shaping up to be a successis having a helpful, experienced staff. Michel Plante and Sarah Tremblay
brought with them most, if not all, of the staff of the Montreal Salon Son & Image
. I was delighted to see Caroline St-Louis, the talented singer and flute player whose performances with her band
are always a highlight of the Montreal show. Although this time she's not performingshe's expecting a babyshe's here helping out at the registration desk.
