    I've gone the past few years. Even flew down from WA for it.

    Last fall, they had Stu Hamm, Michael Manring, Nathan East, Trip Wamsley, Myron Dove and others. It's great to see these folks up close and have a chance to chat with them.

    If you're in the area, I would say it is almost a no-brainer. Go!!

    I have a conflict that evening and have to be in Santa Rosa so won't be able to attend afterall...I'm dying to get my hands on Bobby Vega's new Ribbecke Hafling bass. I talked to him the other day and he said he's bringing it. I need something to replace my Kramer Ferrington ABG and I think this is the one I'll be going with.

    I'll be up in the area all week and will visit with Bobby in Healdsberg and see it but anyone considering going to BQ should check this bass out!!

    Bobby Vega... Nitti... wish I could be there, those are both great basses and hip cats.
     
  8. You'll probably want to have your bass for Todd Johnson's clinic. I'm not sure about the others.
     
  9. Daniel,

    Will there be any hot chicks there or is this a bassausage fest? ;)

    Wow. This is right down the street from my house. Of course I have a late night gig the night before, and need to get ready for wootcamp this weekend.

    Is there a listing of exhibitors? A schedule of performers,clinics, etc.? I'd like to see what is there before I drag myself out of bed and pay a lot of cash.

    If success is everyone having a GREAT time, being amazed by the unbelievable artists, testing new gear & hanging with your friends; then it was a huge success.

    I would like to thank Dan Elliott (organizer), the other sponsors, as well as the hard working volunteers Eric, Chip, Mary Joe, Dave & many others. A huge thank you goes out to artists Todd Johnson, Vail Johnson, Dave LaRue, Bobby Vega, Adam Nitti & Michael Manring for the great clinics as well as excellent performances.
