    I will be hosting a GTG and house concert at my home in Lawrenceville in May. Performing at the show will be:

    MICHAEL MANRING
    YES, YOU READ THAT RIGHT.

    Important Details:
    Sunday, 18 May
    Show starts at 6:30 PM
    Doors open at 5:30 PM

    I will provide snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. If you'd like to drink responsibly, you may BYOB. We do take up donations at these performances, and 100% of the monies collected go to the artist. Suggested donation is $15.00 per person.

    This is going to be a terrific show, so if you'd like to attend, post it here and I'll PM you the detailed info during the week prior to the show. I'd love to see this turn into a standing room only show and I have a really big living room.

    Also to note for anyone who is in, near, or passing through the Atlanta area, Michael will be conducting a free clinic at Atlanta Bass Gallery. The seating is first come-first served, so get there early. Some private lessons will also be available. For more information on that, contact the guys at Atlanta Bass Gallery.

    MrLenny1 - Are you planning to join us?


    Also - since I have some folks who are traveling in for this event, we're going to do a bass GTG/jam in the afternoon prior to the 6:30 show. If you'd like to bring a bass and/or rig and come hang out with us, let me know. I'll open the doors for that at 1:30 PM Sunday afternoon.

    I want to be there. I have had or should I say everyone else has so many plans for me I do not know what is up or down. Not looking good. What is the deadline for a decision?

    I saw Michael Manring at Bass San Diego last year... and he was absolutely astounding... I was awestruck by the music he creates... and a super humble guy.

    Without exception... it was the most enjoyable musical event I have ever attended.

    Congrats to you for hosting what will be a stunning musical experience...

    I'm confirming the chair rentals on Monday, but I always get a few extras, so don't worry about that. Let me know by Saturday, 16 May, if you can. I doubt I'll be on TalkBass during the day on Sunday and I'd hate to miss a message. If you're not sure by Saturday still, I'll go ahead and PM you my contact information just in case there's a last minute decision on Sunday. I'm pretty flexible like that. :)

    Thanks! If you're available, you should join us! It's going to be a great day and the more the merrier. :)

    Yep. Michael's a treat in any setting, but a house concert is absolutely the perfect situation to really absorb what he's about. I lucked into an unannounced one a few years ago, the night before a concert venue show in Boise, at the promoter's house. It was just magical. This one's a little too far away for me to get to though, unfortunately. [​IMG]

    Hope you all have a blast!

    Had a blast at the GTG. I met so many cool people including a bunch of TBers. A big "thank you" to all who let me tinker around on their basses.

    Michael Manring is so talented and yet, so humble and unassuming. It was a special thing to get to hear him play in such an intimate setting.

    Special thanks to Tat, a genuine force of nature, for hosting and putting the whole thing together. I'm looking forward to the next one.

    Glad you were able to make it, G. It was great to meet you and check out your goodies. I know it's a drive for you, but any time you're in town, just let me know and we'll hit Bass Gallery or something while you're here.
