    hi guys, i am a piano player in Los Angeles and i host a jazz blues jam session and i desperately need a bass player. i have some great musicians out but we can never seem to find a bass player.

    are there any BASS PLAYERS IN LA? who want to play for fun and experience and learning? i know it's LA and people want $$$ but i am hopeful that there is someone out there that chose to play music for the joy not the $$. it's a great networking experience and great tunes.

    i've posted flyers all around town and i'm hoping someone in LA will see this ad and contact me. i hope to hear from you!

    Please email me. say hello. let's make this happen!

    thank you!!! :)

    I don't share the same sentiments as Hapa. If anything I feel ya and know where you're coming from. If I'm free and feel like a new experience/adventure, I'm always down to jam and network with new musicians. Not everything has to be for money. Part of the music thing for me goes back to the roots of just having fun. I'll email you and exchange info

    Anyway, feel free to PM me about the details. The open jam is located in Hollywood/Vine area. And is on the 3rd Saturday of each Month. from 1 to 3pm.

    It's open, friendly and we have some great players. Just got to find a regular bass player. I have jazz charts too for people to play, so if you can read charts, even better.

    Upright or electric is welcome. Thank you guys for your interest, hopefully we can play together sometime. Feel free to PM me.

    It's not a paid gig. I'm trying to find people who just want to play music and have fun and learn. We're all there because we have fun playing music, it's a great forum to try new things and experiment and we want improve our musicianship and meet other players in the area as well.

    Mod edit: cleaning

    Networking is cool. Hopefully Vinnie Colaiuta or JR Robinson are on the gig? That would be a nice network ;)

    What part of town you gigging in?

    Well, it's an open jam for people to play and get to know each other. Im pretty sure Vinnie wants to get paid. We however do it for fun and the love of music, as crazy as that sounds.

    The jam is in Hollywood
