    Andrew "The Godfather of Gospel" Gouche'!

    I think I was one of two people who knew who he was (is). He sat in on two songs that my friend sang. Yeah he was kill'n it!

    And for all you gear heads out there, he played a white 6 string MTD bass with maple board, pearl block inlays and gold hardware.

    Yikes. Who had the cojones to take over the bass seat after that?

    (I think I would have quietly slipped out the back and gone home.)

    Luckily I played before him. I played a 4 string. The next guy played a 5 string. Then Andrew played a 6 string.

    I can't seem to post the video but if you go to Janet Mudge on Facebook and scroll down a few posts the video is there.

    Wow! Too cool!
    Just watched the video, I'm gonna go practice now. (Not really) Probably just eat myself into an even more sad existence. Thanks for sharing that. :(

    And once again, the poor guy with the Chapman stick never got his chance to play.

    I heard that on a local Seattle bass players Facebook group as well. Seeing him in the wild makes me feel more confident in those rumors.

  19. Norm Stockton made mention of it on an Instagram post with Andrew a week or 2 ago. I wonder what he's got going on in Seattle?
