The Sydney Get Together is now confirmed. It will be held on Sunday 30 October 2005 at Greensquare Community Hall: 3 Joynton Avenue Zetland NSW 2017 The time will be 12pm - 4pm and there will likely be a fixed program including some special events so, if you can, try and budget to be there the whole time. It will be BYO alcohol if you are old enough to drink, but there will be a fridge etc and some food. It will be open to ALL AGES but please note that alcohol will likely be being consumed there if you are thinking of letting your kids go. No alcohol will be served - it will be strictly BYO. We will provide more details about the activities etc when we get them sorted out completed but it definately on! At the GTG there will be: 1. The largest collection of Alembic basses in the Southern Hemisphere 2. The first public appearance of the Thunderfunk THB550 in Australia 3. The first Australian appearances of the Accugroove Tri112 and the Schroeder 1210 4. A live recording of a basscast podcast called "The Bass Show" which will feature a panelist of bassists like the Footy Show (minus men in dresses - sorry we couldnt get Brad Cook to make it) On top of that a lot of guys are bringing their gear down so you can try out all sorts of cool gear. Please note - we will require ID at the door - you do not have to be over 18 but will need some kind of photo ID. A FEW MORE DETAILS Thanks to the wonderful efforts of David Burgess from Green Square Music ( www.greensquare.net ), we have secured Steve Hunter, one of Sydney's premier bassists to give a solo performance and take questions during the Sydney GTG. Anyone who heard Basscast Number 7 would be familiar with Steve's work if they weren't already. More info on Steve can be found at www.stevehuntermusic.com. The format of the day will be: 12:00pm - Gear checkin for anyone bringing gear 1:00pm - 2:00pm - Recording of "The Bass Show" a live to tape podcast segment with a panel of bassists 2:30pm - Steve Hunter Solo performance 4:00pm - Finish and gear checkout. There will be plenty of time just to hang out, check out all the great gear that will be there and just have fun. There is absolutely no cost so just come on down - it will be fun! FOR THOSE BRINGING GEAR To increase security there will be a single entry and exit point that will manned at all times. We will operate a checkin / checkout of gear arrangement where you list your name and all the gear you have brought when you turn up. You need to sign out that you have taken all your gear when you leave and it may be checked. This is to make sure that people can feel confident bringing their gear down. We will also ensure that everyone shows some kind of ID to get in and we get peoples details.
