Florida Bassists Club

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by q1014, Mar 4, 2008.


  1. I heard of Harry and the Natives and looked them up online, my band (based in Sebring) is doing a party in Hobe Sound in February. On the east coast, we play at Earl's in Sebastian and used to play at Archie's in Fort Pierce until a musician bought the place and now features his band. We weren't sure if Harry and the Natives would be the right fit for us. We are a five piece classic rock with some country. From the groups I saw listed it looked a little laid back/trop pop. What kind of group or act do you have?

    They have all sorts of stuff there but I don't think they pay all that much (I am not the BL). They also have a blues jam once a week. It is outdoors on a large patio and we always have to bring a sound system. Why they don't have their own is a question I have not yet had answered. The band I play in plays all sorts of stuff from country to newer stuff to old classic rock.

    Fellow Florida-based bassists, I'm headed down to Clewiston next weekend. I posted some gear for sale, so here is a shameless plug:

    Ampeg, QSC, BBE, Bass Rig for sale

    I have a Roland KC-110 battery-powered keyboard amp and a Kustom 250 I'll be listing soon too, so if anyone is interested in them I'll see what I have room to bring with on my trip. I'm going to try and swing through Tampa and pick up a bass, just gotta get "budget approval" first. :(

    Thanks in advance...

    Eric

    Great thank you I will look for him
     
  10. Well... since this thread has kicked up a bit lately, allow me to propose a TB Florida GTG. Again.

    We might need to break into North/South/Central groups as I won't be able to make an event in Miami. We have a couple of luthiers who would likely be interested in participating as well.

    Any thoughts/interest?

  17. Yeah... that's why I'm leaning toward having to break it up into 2/3/4 individual GTGs. South, Central, North, Panhandle? :)
