I have seen a bunch of threads with personal bass collections of near ridiculous proportions ... that's all nice. But how about seeing and hearing you PLAYING your basses?!? You know ... performing? To play along, you have to post both a picture from a live performance ... and a recording clip using the same bass! I'll start it off with a couple of me: Me kickin' it old school in my Jump/Rockabilly band Three Button Deluxe. I am thumpin' on "Slabby Joe" ... my '51 RI P-Bass. Drummer=very pleased, so we must be playing a shuffle. This was at a street dance in July and I remember it was hotter than the hinges of Hades out there in the sun! Here's a clip of the trio from our home-studio demo, playing Jump, Jive an' Wail. It's just live, no overdubs ... featuring the '51 and yours truly on vox. Pardon the quality, I ain't no engineer. '70s-funk flavor with The Groove Machine! I got a call to throw together a band at the last minute for a local dive-bar that had a cancellation so I called my friends from the GB band I was in at the time and we decided to have some fun. I broke out the old '80 Ibanez RS-924 Roadster and the red suspenders. I sold that bass a year or so ago and bought my Warwick Streamer STD. The Roadster had a great vibe, but it was heavy and chunky ... still kinda miss it though. I do think the lava lamp illuminating the red '70s Ludwig Vistalites was a nice touch. Oh, and our hot blond singer? She actually has a voice you wouldn't believe. She moved to LA last year though ... Here's a clip of us from another homemade demo (again, apologies for my lack of studio wizardry) featuring her AND the Ibanez. I was able to get a good tone out of that beast though, come to think of it ... OK, that's it for me for now. Who's on deck?
