    Friday night after leaving the Lakers game, courtside seats, of course! I AM the Woodchuck! :rolleyes: Anyhoo, while we're driving home, Fatima calls and asked us if we wanted to go to a party, so we head that way. I'm thinking that it was just going to be a party, but I noticed instruments, and then some guy sits behind the keyboards, and announces Me'shell (I ain't gonna try the last name!), with Jonathon Maron, formally of Groove Collective, on bass. They smoked it! They are both EXCELLENT bassists. She played her old Jazz, and he played an Atelier Z 4 string. It was a great night.

    From what I've heard, he hasn't left, but then again, they ALL say that. Since he's on the road, he hasn't answered my email, and I only got to talk to him briefly on Friday.

    i saw them perform the following night in san francisco;and they were on FIRE.
    if you haven't seen her and the boys perform
    you're missing a really GOOD show.
    i was hesitant about going being that her former
    bassist david dyson is no longer performing.
    but i must tip my cap to her new bassist jonathon
    maron, my man laid it down all night on that inca
    silver atelier z four string......it's always good to see
    other people who play the same bass as you.;)

    me'shell is one BAD AZZ bassist PERIOD..
     
  9. Actually, her real name is Michelle Johnson.. :D

    Damn! First a Lakers game then a great show. Excellent.

    I was lucky enough to see Groove Collective awhile back in Brooklyn. Maron had every booty in house grooving and shaking :D

    She was supposed to have changed her name again by now. She can have mine, it's served me well. Then I can change mine. Clamshell McDiggens has a nice ring to it.

    Or would it be Clam'shell?
