    I'm in. @BassCliff is going with me. I'm driving down Sunday morning to hang out and praise with him at church, then we're going to the hang.


    This is the info I have:

    The Bass Hang is on Sunday the 21st And is $15 to get in. That gets you a two taco plate with rice and beans, a drink, and a raffle ticket to win prizes.

    For me, the day started off with an early morning drive from Vegas to LA to grab @BassCliff.

    He had a gig last night, and so on 4 hours of sleep and a lot of caffeine, he brought the low end in the house of the Lord.

    After a quick lunch with his family, we headed south to Tsunami.

    What's the first thing to greet us? A Taco stand! So, yeah, I just ate. But I'm not gonna pass up tacos!

    Other than winning the very 1st raffle, my personal highlight of the show was listening to @Jon Moody play. I knew he was cool, I knew he rocked a bowtie, I knew he worked for my favorite string company, but I didn't realize just how talented of a player he is. If you have a chance to check out some of his recordings, I highly recommend it.

    It looks like Tsunami is going to get into the pre-amp market. Here is their very 1st rough prototype. @TonyP- can give you more details, as he's geeky enough to know all of the specs.

    The final product isn't going to look like this, this is just a VERY rough prototype.

    And so the day ended with someone twisting Tony's arm and getting him to play for us.

    Thank you so much for the kind words (and making the trip out)! I greatly appreciate it. It's always a great time when I get to play some music alongside @TonyP- and Chance. Two stellar musicians and even better people.

    Hi!

    It was a real pleasure meeting some of the movers and shakers in the industry. @TonyP- and @Jon Moody were informative and entertaining, great, talented players. Chance Onody was absolutely amazing with his looper and octave pedals. Keith Stickney was a gracious host and gave away oodles of door prizes. Even this old country bass player won some stuff. I'm pretty anonymous and invisible when I attend events like this. I was very surprised and a little flattered when I heard someone call my name. Steve Araujo recognized me from the KRB because he'd also worked with Kelly in the past. We chatted for a bit about gigs and mutual friends. Steve also knows Alex, the bassist who took my place in the KRB. Steve even let me play a couple of his basses. Hey @DerTeufel, did I meet you there? Weren't we talking to Tony Tonite? Anyway, it was a really cool way to spend a Sunday afternoon and rub elbows with some great players.

    There was some really cool gear parked in the hallway when we arrived, a few Schroeder cabs, a couple of EICH amps, along with a Wilkens PJ5 bass.

    Here's an unobstructed view of Pete Hilton's offerings. The dark one belongs to Jon Moody (Notice the bow tie on the headstock?) and the other was being shipped to a client in Japan.

    Chase sounded like a one man band. I don't mind not being able to play like him. I just wish I had his hair. :D

    Steve and Tony were a crack up during their "2 Dudes 1 Bass" segments. They were totally unrehearsed, just having fun. Nice work.

    Jon is so thoughtful and contemplative with his music. He played a few of his impressive tunes from his CDs.

    Many thanks to my good friend @wintremute for turning me on to this event. I don't check this section very often but I'm happy to get together with my fellow bass players every chance I get. Now I've got a gig report to post. I'm looking forward to the next Bass Hang, wherever that may be.


    Thank you for your indulgence,

    BassCliff
