    Well, boys and girls. It looks like I am going to be doing some road work come April. Martin Nievera, a fantastic Filipino star whom I have been playing for since New Year's, will be doing some concert dates. I do not have a schedule yet, but it looks like weekend stuff ( sweet ) - smoking band, too- full production- rhythm section, 2 keyboards, 3 piece horn section and percussionist
    April 10 I believe will be Portland , Oregon. Miami will be hit as well, I will post more dates as they are revealed so maybe I can meet some of you. You are invited to come out- I am excited to do some road dates as I have not travelled in about 3 years...let's see, Bass, Laptop, underwear.. I'm ready to go!!

    Sydney Australia? Didn't think so :(

    Have fun. Touring can be a blast or it can be a nightmare. It's what you make it.....

    I wanna know what you're gonna take on the road!! The Thuya Roscoe? An F? The Nordstrom that you've commissioned? How about rig wise? The same set up we see on your site?

    Are you gonna be your own tech?

    How about a little educational forum, where you tell us all about your preparations for this road gig?

    When will you get your music? (traditional notation or TAB? - Sorry, couldn't help it) How often will rehearsals be?
    How will you feel when they approach you for the pyrotechnics portions of the show? "You wanna attach that where on my Fodera?"

    If you have the time, it'd be nice to hear the good details. Especially for those of us that live gregariously through you show folks that get the real paying gigs that we poor schmucks could only dream about.

    I will add more dates as they are given to us and details about the tour- thanks, guys!- Adrian
  12. Nothing like that ever comes to Oklahoma City, but maybe if you make it to Dallas, I can drive down...

    I guess we'll find out when you get a schedule!! :bag:

    Cool. Music. Miscellaneous.
  14. Any blue basses for sale? :hyper:
  15. Im assuming NYC isn't anywhere on your list... that would be sweet if it were though. Im dying to try a Nordstrand out and can't find one anywhere, which is an oddity for living in the city as I've found Alembics, F-basses, Laklands, Fodera's (ofcourse) Sadowsky and pretty much everyone else you could name, but no Nordstrand.

    Edit- Im pretty stupid, I forget to add how much I respect your chops and musicality from the few recordings I've heard of you on Talkbass; it means alot to bassplayers like myself to hear guys like you pumping out some sick grooving tunes and great melodic, rythmic and harmonic work.

    bummer! are you in Riverside? by the way, my headstock can beat your headstock- yours looks like a squid!!! :p
  20. About a half hour west of Riverside, usually.

    Yeah, maybe THAT headstock wouldn't win, but the Tyler would!
