...

If Mike Kobluk hadn't been president of the International Association of Venue Managers in 1990-91, his second in command, Kevin Twohig, might never have discovered his lifestyle career in arena management.
...
"My history starts with Mike Kobluk," said Twohig, CEO, Spokane (Wash.) Public Facilities District and 2011 recipient of the IAVM's most prestigious award, The Charles A. McElravy Award.
...
Quite appropriately, Kobluk will present the award to Twohig on July 25 in Phoenix during IAVM's VenueConnect.
...
And Twohig was the perfect candidate, or Kobluk couldn't have taken on the extracurricular activities.
...
"Mike being president changed my career because he was gone a lot and I stepped in to figure out what would work and what wouldn't instead of taking everything to Mike.
...
And it all started when Kobluk was IAAM president and Twohig was the only one home in Spokane to handle the HR issues and the politics that had always been Kobluk's perview.
...
"Mike was really the one who let me figure out that I would really enjoy the business and would be challenged by it and that it really was a profession," Twohig said.
...
Kobluk, who had been an administrator at Gonzaga, was hired by Expo '74, Spokane's World's Fair, as director of entertainment. He needed sound and lights.
...
After the fair, Kobluk was hired to run the city-owned Spokane Opera House. Kobluk needed an operations manager.
...
"I knew I needed someone who knew operations," Kobluk recalled.
...
"He is extremely approachable and fired up to get the best out of other people he works with," Kobluk said.
...
When the new $50 million, 12,000-seat Spokane Arena was built, Kobluk stayed with the existing venues and Twohig took over just the arena.
...
Ten years ago, Kobluk retired and Twohig was tapped to manage all city-owned venues.

Mike Kobluk and Joe Frazier left the music industry, while Chad Mitchell himself released a number of solo albums before retiring from music, and Mitchell Trio alumi John Denver went on to his own superstar career.
...
Fortunately for their many fans, Mike, Joe, Chad, and John Denver all reunited in 1987 for several concerts, which were recorded and are now available on Folk Era.
...
Chad is currently at home in Spokane, Washington, living only a few blocks away from friend and fellow Trio member, Mike Kobluk.
...
Mike Kobluk - Director of Spokane Opera House and Stadium Born in British Columbia, Mike developed his fondness for singing in high school. However it wasn't until he met Chad Mitchell at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, that the spark turned to flames. Though he had never seriously considered a musical career due to his love for math and writing, he was soon singing at venues across Spokane.
...
Mike was the last remaining original member when the Trio disbanded in 1968. Since 1974, Mike has lived and worked in Spokane as Director of the city's Opera House, Stadium, Coliseum, and Convention Center. Going over the Trio's repertoire after 20 years, Mike commented that "You begin to hear things that you didn't hear when you were living the material...a lot of things that are really special."
1966 photo shows a young John Denver in a new Marina City apartment - Marina City News

...
Mike Kobluk, an original member of Chad Mitchell Trio, took the photo in 1966 in unit 4707, a one-bedroom apartment in the west tower. Kobluk and his wife, Clare, lived in the apartment from 1963 to 1967. In June 1967, Denver and his wife, Annie, took over the Kobluk’s lease.
...
Kobluk says when they moved in, theirs was the only completed unit on the floor. “Since it was promised by a certain date, the contractors completed my unit first and continued working all around and above us.”
The trio chose Chicago because their business manager and booking agency representative were there. They traveled to colleges throughout the country and, says Kobluk, “it made sense to be located in the middle of everything, and close to Chicago’s airports.”
