    The Vortex sounds good to me.

    I should be able to make it, but, honestly, it is all going to boil down to whether I feel like sticking around in-town for a couple of hours after work since I live too far out to go home and come back.

    Lazy, yes. But, you know, honest, too...:D
     
  5. I'm all in favor of an Atlanta Bass Shop.

    A year or so ago I was looking at small/light cabs and could only find two of the five I was interested in within an hour's drive of Atlanta. I had basically given up on trying the AG 12 until bassmonkee lent one of his (thanks again!).

    I'll may miss the meeting since I would be just taking up space, no real small business experience and no money to invest. OTOH, it would be good to see some of the folks again.

    Finally (and a bit OT), I caught J-Raj's gig with his groove jazz/funk band at the Park. Tasty and interesting music and J-R is a very solid player. He doesn't post gig spam as far as I can tell, but check his website schedule. It'll be worth your while.

    Heck, if you show up, Joe, I'll make a point to stick around in town to eat a big juicy Vortex Burger just to say Hi.


    I haven't had the chance to check out J Rai yet, but as I am NOT above spamming, I hope to see everyone at The Five Spot in L5P from 10-1 this Friday, August 15th!!!!!! :D :p :bassist:

    Jason,

    It ain't gonna be the same without ya!!! Let me know about The Five Spot, interested to know what that place is like...

    ***The Squirelheads and I are going to be doing our Nawlins thang at Chips in Winder friday and Wild Wing (Scary-etta) Saturday evening (weekend of squirrels gone wild! yes we have those beads)... just a little shameless plug...

    Joe,

    Thanks for the complement, I was worried that a TB'er was gonna show up to that gig... :D

    Don't worry, I'm not asking anyone for $ to invest, this is the 'info grabbing stage', I'm interested in finding out what others have to say.

    Atlanta Bass Only Shop -- Ahhh, that would be sweet.

    Although I'm up in Alpharetta, I think I can probably make the meeting at the Vortex.

    Although I don't live in Atlanta,it's only a 4 hour drive from here in Knoxville.
    I have a gu*tarist/gearhead buddy of mine,who lives in Alpharetta,and I pop into town from time to time to visit him,and do my occasional deal hunt for pieces of gear that I'm looking for.
    I think a bass specialty shop is exactly what Atlanta has needed for a while.If you sell goods that no other shop in the area sells,and also sell your wares via the web,I bet it will be a profitable venture.
    The closest in-town competition for "botique" (spelling?) bass gear would probably be Atlanta Discount Music,but I don't know how much bass stuff they carry now.I haven't been in there since I bought my Eden head in '95.
    Since Ken Stanton has given up on Aguilar,that'd be a nice line to take on.It's also hard to find Tech 21 and Genz Benz dealers around who carries their heads and cabinets,so those companies would be a good possibilty also.
    You guys are really on to something. :cool:

    I think it is a great idea. I don't know if I can make it but I'll try. It is good to have bass players in the area because of all the gear that we can trade. If anyone is interested I will be playing at Fuzzy's on Tuesday August 26 with the Barry Richman band. I would love to meet you guys.

    Jeff,

    Tell Barry 'Jai Swann' says 'high!'... err I mean 'Hi!' :D

    That Tuesday night Fuzzy's gig is a fun one. Last time I was there for that one, I caught Steve Mays with Donna and Barry, with KT on B3... That was bad ass!!!:bassist:

    A while back Barron Ruth (gtr), Coy Bowles (gtr), Jason Chamison (dr) and I got him to play a gig with us up at Doc's :eek: ... He is a blast to play with! Doc's isn't a blast to play at though.:meh:

    I live in ATL and am curious as to how the meeting goes...I would be interested in being a part of this, but may be unable to be at the Vortex Monday.

    It would be appreciated if you posted progress on this front...

    Thanks

    Snailplow I had the chance to A/B both Aggie db680 and the Eden Navigator at Bass Central and IMO the Aggie was just so damn good and musical and clean that I had forgot what the Eden sounded like.I did try the Eden and it was very nice but the Aggie was alot nicer.
