    Hey all, I did a few searches and couldn't find ANYTHING regarding Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC bassists, so we should all make a club! I know that there are a few of us who are regular posters, let's make it official :bassist:

    Share your music, gigs, and general blabber here!

    And post for a number!

    Great idea. I'm located in Gaithersburg, MD and play in an 80's hairband tribute called "Freakshow" where we play loud, mediocre music so drunk chicks can dance. I'll take a number.

    Looks like I'm #3 ...I'm in Columbia, Md. just off Rt. 29.

    I'm still in the woodshed after taking the last 16 years off from playing bass.

    Hey there guys! I'm in the UMBC area, currently just a gun for hire for solo acts in the college circuit. I'm hoping to start up a permanent band as soon as possible.

    Add me to the club. I'm in Poolesville Md which is just west of nowhere. ;)
    Right now I'm in a band called Soulbox. We all live in Poolesville about 5 minutes from each other and play in our local pizza/bar every couple of months.

    Great idea, add me too, please! I live in Silver Spring, and work and play in DC in a post-rock band called The Orchid.

    I'll check out your link when I'm off a work computer, wattsferry! I'm down in Silver Spring quite often... I love the shops there.

    I was amazed that there wasn't a Maryland club already! I figure we can use this to call gigs, plug our local classifieds, etc. For example, I'm looking to trade my Peavey T40 (Pictures here) and trying to arrange a sale for my GK 410RBH, if anyone's interested in checking them out.

    There are a lot of us here in the MD/DC/VA area, we even have GTGs

    Another one is being planned for the spring I believe.

    I'm near Gaithersburg and am currently starting up a coverband project doing 60s to current rock. No name and no dates yet.

    Checked out your stuff, it's great! I especially dig"New Mexico", and the entire EP has great flow. Announce whenever your next gig is locally and I'll try to make it down!

    Finally joined up with a band that seems PERFECT for me. Danceable, amazing basslines that I've having a blast learning. How's everyone else doing in the MD/DC area?

    A committed back bedroom jammer in DC here, does it count even if you don't play live but want to? Just kidding!
