    Greetings Michael.I saw you in Chicago at the Bass Club back in December 2008.
    I was wondering when you might be getting back around this neck of the woods?
    It's been too long!
    I have four friends I'd like to bring to one of your shows.

    Also I have two other questions.
    • Have you ever tried to do a recording of Michael Hedges "Aerial Boundaries"on your Hyperbass?
    • A possibility of a Montreux reunion?

    Thank you, gebass! I'd love to get back to Chicago. I'm sorry to say I don't have any plans to be out that way at the moment, but as soon as I get a workable offer I'll be there!

    To answer your questions, I've never tried to come up with a bass version of "Aerial Boundaries." I just love hearing it played on guitar!

    We did a couple of Montreux reunion concerts in California a few years ago. It was a lot of fun and we've thought about doing some more. We'll see!

    Yes, that's the plan! We're hoping we can tie in a public performance as well. Please stay tuned...

    Michael, it's Mark from Bass Club Chicago. I would love to work something out with you here at the store in August or otherwise. Message me here, or direct at mark@bassclubchicago.com Loved the last time you played our store years ago, and would be stoked to have you play here again. We could even work something out with a larger venue, and open in to the masses. Let's talk soon.

    It will be $10 admission. Presale is available, and since it will be an instore, attendance is limited. Feel free to call the shop, and purchase tickets in advance via a credit card. Thanks!
