    I'll be hosting another GTG at my home on Saturday, May 3.

    Things that are firmed up so far:

    Concert beginning at 7:00 PM featuring solo bassist and composer, Sean O'Bryan Smith. Opening for Sean will be Jaymi Millard (yes, our very own TB Jaymi) and Darren Michaels.

    The concert will be fully solo bass, and it's not unheard of for the before- and after-party to include a good amount of hanging out and jamming together.

    We have some other things in the works to make this a full day event and I'll post updates here as they firm up.

    Would love to have a houseful for this event!

    And it's getting better! Here are some of the new things that are being finalized.....

    In addition to the show on Saturday night, we'll be having a bass clinic. That's right - bass clinic!! Jaymi Millard and Sean O'Bryan Smith will be leading this and we'll post more details as they roll in.

    We have a great sponsor, as well. V.F. Custom Cables has generously donated some speaker and instrument cables to try out. We'll be raffling those off during event to a couple of lucky winners.

    We're continuing to work on more cool stuff, so I hope to see you all out for the day!!

    I would love to come to this and learn a thing or two. I'm located in the Lawrenceville area. How does one obtain directions?

    Heya Folks!!!

    Sorry to do this on short notice, but the 3 May GTG is being postponed to a later date in the summer due to some critical conflicts. I am scheduled to have surgery the Tuesday before the show and I expect to be a bit my under the weather than I'd like to be for guests. Our headliner, Sean O'Bryan Smith also has a couple of tight deadlines in this timeframe that this postponement will assist him in meeting.

    Stay tuned here, though, and keep an eye on the GTG thread, since there are more things in the queue at my place and I'll keep updating this.
