New & Improved "Show us you action shots" (or 'BUFF Guys Do Gigs') v4.0

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by j-raj, Apr 9, 2010.

  1. Posted this pic elsewhere in the forum. Second to last gig in March before canceling everything with this band and some other commitments.

    Online, I found some strange pics concerning this band. Seems to relate to time travel, so that's cool.

    Sometime in the future, we survive the pandemic and travel back to 1897.

    I guess we'll be doing an episode of Saturday Night Live, too.

    The SNL gig must be true. Found the same pic on a billboard along 5th Ave, New York.

    And I guess I develop a video gaming system, the FigStation 4. I've got the power cord, just gotta build out the rest of it.

    Fun and exciting times ahead, I must say.

    Or, me and paint.net made these to help keep everyone engaged during this downtime. A little liquid and/or herbal enhancement plus too much time at home will do this to some folk LOL.

    Gotta have fun wherever you can find it in these challenging days. :)

    Might be fun to start a separate thread of photo manipulated pics/videos of you or your musical projects/bands.

  2. E19BCBB6-365A-4BE1-AC92-456EEB49F035.jpeg We did a show on the boat dock at a Brewery in Wayzata, MN. It was decent weather, a bit on the cool side, but a good time was had by all.
    I was a little worried about my equipment falling off into the water, but I was vigilant and had nothing take a plunge. Our drummer said he only had 2 sticks go in the water.

  4. Taken from last shows in 2019 and the few shows played in 2020. Band had to stop in February and has resumed only two weeks ago. And now we have another lockdown pending.

    IMG_20210423_234622_302.jpg FB_IMG_1619285913048.jpg Shots from my first real gig on a stage since the pandemic with an original jazz electro fusion band. Been playing with these guys since I was in college (11+yrs ago). Doing what we do there was no shortage of empty room played and blues brothes-esque payment situations and to come out of hibernation and get to do what we do to a crowd that gets it and actually make a buck for a change has left me feeling on top of the world.

    For the gear nutz:
    2010? Mia jazz special with maple board
    Dimarzio model J with 62 jazz wiring
    Rotosound 66s
    Boss ME 50B (my first multi effects from highschool that I got my electro synth 808 bass or my dnb synth tones and not to forget my disco phaser haha)
    Trace elliot elf head
    Mesa boogie road ready 1x15 (EV 15b driver)from early 90s
