    Yea... Yes this should be good. I saw this flier over at detroitbassplayers.com. I think it was on Big Ive's Facebook too.
    Detroit is on the up swing, that was a cool shout out in the Bass Player magazine. The one that has Marcus Miller on the cover. The group photo in a two page spread...cool:cool:

    Is there any way to find out more, short of facebook? Is it open to anyone, or is it exclusive?

    Awesome, it sounds like a really good time. I'm excited for the opportunity, especially to see Nate Watts (no offense to anyone else...I'm really excited about the whole thing). This may be a stupid question, but you mentioned bringing a bass...lots of people will be bringing instruments, right?

    Believe me I am not at all offended.


    Yes feel free to bring your bass, there will be clinics from some of the artist(I will be doing a clinic and a performance).


    Detroit has one of the richest history of bass guitar players probably more than any other city in America. And I get mad love from Detroit.

    Does anyone know what time it starts? I've read 2:30 and I've read 4, but I don't know which. Thanks, and see those of you who are going later!

    I think doors open around 2:30 and the shows start around 4:00 before the shows there will be some incredible workshops and meet and greets. I'm definitely trying to move some things around to come check it out.

    I got home a little while ago from the bass fest, and it was awesome! That's the most fun I've had in a while. Everyone was really nice and helpful. Sometimes I wish I was a little more naturally outgoing, and I'd get more out of situations, but it was a great time anyway. The performances blew me away, and I'm looking forward to next time!

    It was a great time and the most awesome part of it was the overall unity from the players to those who came for a killer hang.

    I did what I did and felt really good about things. Me and my band brought the grooves with a few little tid bits tossed in :)
