    Hey all, I did a few searches and couldn't find ANYTHING regarding Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC bassists, so we should all make a club! I know that there are a few of us who are regular posters, let's make it official :bassist:

    Share your music, gigs, and general blabber here!

    And post for a number!

  2. Great idea. I'm located in Gaithersburg, MD and play in an 80's hairband tribute called "Freakshow" where we play loud, mediocre music so drunk chicks can dance. I'll take a number.

    I have nothing to disclose at this time.
    Looks like I'm #3 ...I'm in Columbia, Md. just off Rt. 29.

    I'm still in the woodshed after taking the last 16 years off from playing bass.

    Hey there guys! I'm in the UMBC area, currently just a gun for hire for solo acts in the college circuit. I'm hoping to start up a permanent band as soon as possible.

    Add me to the club. I'm in Poolesville Md which is just west of nowhere. ;)
    Right now I'm in a band called Soulbox. We all live in Poolesville about 5 minutes from each other and play in our local pizza/bar every couple of months.
  7. Great idea, add me too, please! I live in Silver Spring, and work and play in DC in a post-rock band called The Orchid.

    I'll check out your link when I'm off a work computer, wattsferry! I'm down in Silver Spring quite often... I love the shops there.

    I was amazed that there wasn't a Maryland club already! I figure we can use this to call gigs, plug our local classifieds, etc. For example, I'm looking to trade my Peavey T40 (Pictures here) and trying to arrange a sale for my GK 410RBH, if anyone's interested in checking them out.

    There are a lot of us here in the MD/DC/VA area, we even have GTGs

    Another one is being planned for the spring I believe.

    I'm near Gaithersburg and am currently starting up a coverband project doing 60s to current rock. No name and no dates yet.

    Checked out your stuff, it's great! I especially dig"New Mexico", and the entire EP has great flow. Announce whenever your next gig is locally and I'll try to make it down!
  13. Thanks alecduncan. Appreciate you adding me to the club and checking out my band. I'll certainly let you know about our next show!

    Finally joined up with a band that seems PERFECT for me. Danceable, amazing basslines that I've having a blast learning. How's everyone else doing in the MD/DC area?

    A committed back bedroom jammer in DC here, does it count even if you don't play live but want to? Just kidding!
