    Here's the hardest working bass player in New Orleans, in the square. Both he and his bass were wrapped up with cloth. He was light-skinned, so I guess it was to avoid sunburn. Dunno about his well-traveled bass, though I must admit the duct tape was a nice touch.

    Bob:

    I thought that when I looked real close, I could see a "D.H." monogram on his jacket.

    I guess the Mirecourt doesn't travel well.

    What kind of gig is that? Sax and banjo? Guitar and washboard? Double bass? Is it some sort of New Orleans thing?

    Definitely a NO thang. A couple guitars, washboard, bass, sax, clarinet (out of range) trombone, plus others that came and went. And they were quite good.
     
  5. If you see me on a gig like that, the label in the bass will say "Georgia-Pacific"
