Rickenbacker bass book launch event
OK, I've got dates and a venue for a Midwest Rickenbacker Confluence (MRC) and "The Rickenbacker Electric Bass" Launch Event (TREBLE, ironically)! This event is largely to celebrate the release of my book, "The Rickenbacker Electric Bass - 50 Years as Rock's Bottom" (Hal Leonard Books), and to get together with Rickenbacker enthusiasts from all around the Midwest (and folks from anywhere else, too).
WHEN: Friday, July 19 (6-10pm), Saturday, July 20 (1-9pm), Sunday, July 21 (10am-5pm).
WHERE: Waterstone Bank community room (basement), 6560 South 27th Street, Oak Creek, WI 53154. Oak Creek is an adjacent suburb (south) of Milwaukee. The bank is just a few miles from Milwaukee's airport and close to I-94 freeway and several motels and eateries. This is the same location as the 2011 event. Several BGCers attended that one (c'mon back!).
HOW MUCH: Cheap as I am :mrgreen: , the event is free!
WHAT'S HAPPENING: I hope this event will be similar to the one we held two years ago, but hope to gather more people and more instruments. This event will not include an official jam session or gig, so there should be no sour notes on who gets to play. There will be some small amps there, and you're invited to bring one. Spontaneous jams are inevitable. Last time we had a little over 50 Ricks on display and about a dozen folks strolling through the two day event.
So, hope to see everyone in Milwaukee in July – hey, it's warm then!
