As the Destination Marketing arena becomes increasingly complex, DMOproZ strives to provide an easily accessed Knowledge Bank for DMO pros around the world. From White Papers to cutting edge Research to our recommendations on books to make you think, videos to encourage your creativity and blogs to keep you current.

And, we want this to be a two-way street. When you see a great resource that would be a benefit to the DMO collective, shoot it our way and we'll post it up for your peers. 


Ray Thomas

DownloadWhile probably not the first name that most associate with the Moody Blues (except among flautists), Ray Thomas co-founded the soon-to-be Rock Hall of Famers and laid an indelible imprint on Rock by introducing the flute as a primary instrument, a year before Ian Anderson would with Jethro Tull.

As we did in 2016, we are beginning the New Year by saying farewell to artists that created the aural backdrop of the '60s and '70s. And, on this Music Friday we say farewell to Ray Thomas with a two-fer. "Nights in White Satin" was the Moody's biggest hit...and it was Ray's soaring flute that propelled that song into our consciousness.

And, then there is one of his finest turns as a vocalist with "For My Lady."

Enjoy...and remember fondly this rare talent.
