    I don't think there is but I think creating a Talk Bass Chapter Of Michigan(along with the other 49 states)...would be really cool!It would bring the bass player community even closer together...

    I know it says "Canada" in the location field, but I used to play in the DET and I still come up (down?) to visit there every now and again.

    Michigan has some of the nicest people I've ever known. :)

    Hey thrash, thanks for the compliment. If I'm not in "Off Topic" talking politics, I can be somewhat pleasant.

    Canada has been kind to me as well. I have relatives there, as well as a great place to go to unwind, and consume lots of products.

    Incognito, e-mail me if you want to show off basses one of these eves.
     
  13. I'm originally from Sterling Heights (~10mi north of Detroit), and I spend most of my time at school in Ann Arbor.

    Far as I know there haven't been any Michigan TB gatherings...hell, I can't even recall hearing about any in the midwest at all; seems like they're all in Cali or down south. It would be pretty cool though.

    Hey, thanks Thrash! You Canadians are pretty cool yourselves, from my experience...not to mention letting us Americans that aren't quite 21 come over and drink ourselves silly. Oh, and can I burrow a doler, eh? ;)
     
  14. we should scheduel a michigan shin-dig form us TBer's and such sometime then if everyone thinks and agrees it is that cool.. just a suggestion, i would like to see it done.

    and yes, michigan has some really nice people here, except in downtown detroit and such, stray away from there.
     
  15. Downtown D'Town is great. The Joe, Comerica, Ford Field. :D
     
  16. heh indeed it is, i used to go there alot with my dad. we lived on harsens island. but now i live more towards the west side of the state.

    Royal Oak is the "in crowd" place nowadays. The eateries, the upper-middle class Harley drivers, th' Bars, the 'valet" parking! Ha Ha.

    Royal Oak is Oakland county's "Frankenmuth!

    But if you want to play live and get noticed locally...you gotta go and do it in ...DEEEETROIT!
     
  18. Jackson, You know , its where the Prison is. Just about everyone knows someone who's lived in my town ,for awhile anyway's.
