As we approach the 30th anniversary of the formation of AUDIOPHILE IMPORTS, I have decided to terminate the website effective 12/31/15. I will continue to operate the company by sending new release updates to our customer mailing list. If you are not currently on the mailing list , please contact Mike Kermisch via email or phone (443 844 5020, ). This will be the only way to receive the latest info in fusion from around the globe. Effective 1/1/16, all orders will have to be placed directly to Mike Kermisch by phone or email.
Due to my recent health ailments, I've had to dedicate all my time for recovery. The last  new release update was published some 5 months ago so I will be playing catch up in this department, first with a FALL 2015 update & then a new 2016 update to follow.
I would like to thank all my customers past ,present & future for their support of AUDIOPHILE IMPORTS.
Happy Holidays!
Mike Kermisch/President (aka Mr. Fusion)

Fusion Discussion / Mike Stern Show DC
« on: January 12, 2015, 09:00:49 PM »
We did make it to the Stern show in the rain. I'm starting to get tired of seeing Stern, even though we get comp seats every time. Dennis was good, but just not the same bombastic aggressive self that I was used to seeing. I was talking to him after the show and I would not have recognized him if I passed him in the mall. Back to the Stern show, he threw in this really long stinking ballad that he does every time with him doing that humm singing thing. If you are doing an 80-90 minute set hit me with the best fusion that you can bring.

Fusion Discussion / Reviews of concerts and shows
« on: March 06, 2011, 05:28:22 PM »
Saw Mike Stern last night at Blues Alley in DC. Do you remember the movie Groundhog Day with Bill Murray? To me that's what a Mike Stern show is like. The first song was a long kick ass tune where everyone took their solo. The next a ballad, the next a hair above a ballad which to me is a ballad. The fourth another ballad which ended a little up tempo, which is still a ballad. The last a kick ass tune to leave with. I think every song he either played before or his material is taking on the Ozric Tentacle sameness theme. I have thirteen cds by him, does he think these are the only five songs worth playing. It's like seeing a comedian doing the same routine every time.
