    I went, great fun. Nathan East layed it down, and Frank Gambale SMOKED! Great bassist as well, Steve Billman was the name.

    A little bummed that M. Anthony and B. Sheehan didn't play, and Ohm seemed to have some difficulties (I left),, but great time nevertheless.

    anyone else?

    Well, I did :D

    Did you ask Nathan any questions? I though that was very informative.

    Did you see the custom BB and TRB basses back at the store? Bummer that they're one of a kind...

    Yeah, those Yammer's were intricate. Wasn't too into the pickups on that TRB tho..

    Nope, no questions, just listened to others and watched the man play.

    ...ended up meeting him in the drum room afterwards tho!!

    I checked out both basses. the TRB died on me, if you believe it! The signal just started dying while I was checking it out. The BB bass was amazing, though. A little too elaborate on the inlays for me, but gorgeous anyway.

    I left after Frank Gambale.
