    Well it's been a while since I visited Talkbass. Life changed alot, and in a good way. Focus moved to family life, and music took a backseat. Never stopped playing, just stopped gigging. Anyways, I headed up a few GTG a few years ago at the Bass Club Chicago and Lakland. Thinking about doing this again. Anyone interested?

    My aunt, uncle, and kids lived in Rockford. One cousin still does. I'd show up to a GTG if I'm in town; my daughter lives in Chicago.

    Well the past GTG have been in Chicago. Though we could certainly do one here if enough people wanted to go. I always hosted it in Chicago for more turnout.

    I could easily attend a Rockford GTG. Chicago is less desirable.

    My 2 cents.

    I might be able to get some players from Wis depending on when you gave it. If you would like us to come down

    Ok well let me see what I can do for getting a spot in Rockford for a GTG. Maybe we should put a vote up for Rockford or Chicago?

    I'm definitely interested if it's in Chicago. Rockford would be a pretty long haul.

    I went to a GTG at Bass Club Chicago in 2006, and I had a blast. I would love to come up this summer.

    FYI, Lakland has announced it's hosting a GTG in October. I'll be there for sure!

    Lakland GTG 2014
    Lakland will again be hosting an open house on Saturday October 18 at its Chicago headquarters. Time TBD. This should give enough advance notice for anyone so inclined to arrange for time off and to make travel plans. This is our 20th anniversary year, so we will have some interesting twists to the event this time. An event page will be posted on Facebook as our plans solidify. We hope to have the best Lakland GTG yet this October!
