Last night I went along to see our very own Michael Manring and Steve Lawson perform with David Friesen in a bass extravaganza. WOW! To say that it was unbelievable would be a complete understatement. It was jaw-droppingly good. Truly inspirational... All three gentlemen (in the strictest sense of the word) redefined solo bass playing. This was no show-offery, but rather three very fine musicians playing great music. There were indeed moments when I thought "How in heaven's name does he do that?" but I never once thought "WHY in heaven's name does he do that?" Folks, you owe it to yourselves to get off your backsides and get out to hear and support these musicians. It WILL change how you think about your instrument. And hopefully I might have pictures to post from this gig fairly soon. Michael, Steve: Thanks for a great evening.
