This Sunday, April 15th, is the Brookdale Guitar Show, at Brookdale Community College, Lincroft, NJ. The event starts at 10 AM and goes all day. I will be leading a panel on the history of bass in NJ, and will include panel discussion on bass guitars (Danelectro, Silvertone, Guild, Kramer, Vaccaro, Hartke and Brubaker) as well as amps (Ampeg, Silvertone, Guild, Hartke and Fuchs) and of course, strings (DR). I will have vintage and rare examples of all on display. The panel begins at 1pm, and I'll be setting up at about 12:30. While not everyone has responded in final, Larry Hartke, Paul Unkert, and several members of the Kramer and Vaccaro plants have been invited to sit on the panel, and Dennis Kager, formerly of Ampeg, has sent a brief note. There will be a demo of some of the instruments and amps as well as a jam at the end. The panel will be followed by an all things Kramer panel segued from my panel. See you all there!
