    Hi all you Newenglanders!
    Me and Josh A.K.A Blisshead were thinking about putting together a talkbass get-together for us TB'ers living in the northeast US.
    Not sure how to do it so were are looking for ideas and suggestions.
    First off we got to see if there is enough people interested and second we are going to wait until the frigid weather is outa here.
    We were thinking someones house that wouldn't mind a bunch of lowenders getting together and making some noize.
    If we can't we were thinking of a VFW or something along that line.
    Maybe have one house band provide a back line and see if we can put together some kinda jam, AKA Big Bottom. We'll just get together show of some of your gear and have some chow and meet you all, I think it would be a blast, THe Atlanta guy's do it all the time.
    We'll see if this thread gathers up enough people to make it worth our while.
    New Englanders chime in!!!!!

    I'm not hanging out with you people!!! :spit: :D

    Just kidding. I bet I could entice my drummer to show up, give the other Josh's wife a break. Maybe we should consider renting a place that's in the middle of all interested?

    Hey, the last couple gigs I've played I wore my #11 Kevin Dineen jersey and a knit Jamaican cap.

    I call it my Bob Marley and the Hartford Whalers look. ;)
