    Trip, Steve and Michael played to a sold out crowd at the Espresso Garden Cafe last night. There wasn't an empty seat to be had. Pretty amazing since this was an all bass event.

    All three performers did an incredible job solo, but perhaps the most impressive performance was when they all got on stage together. They did an improvisational piece followed by a Bruce Cockburn song. Trip sang the lyrics on the Bruce Cockburn number and all three performers played. It was a very moving piece.

    Individually, all three seemed to be at the top of their game. The audience responded with enthusiasm. Despite it being a 3 hour show on the clock, I felt like we had just gotten there when the show had ended. The performances were quite captivating.

    My recommendation is to see any of these guys if you get the chance, and if they aren't playing out in a venue near you, then buy a CD. I did both.
  2. Wow....That must have been a treat for the ears and eyes. Congrats!
