    Oh man, I would totally make a fly-in date for this, but it looks like airfare from Seattle would be prohibitively expensive :-(

    Yes, and how sad is that! Well, how would you like to put together, or find a venue up by you, where Peter Paul and Mary Alive can perform and you would be our bass player, you'd make $250, and for setting up the gig you earn an additional $500! Humm...sound interesting?
    I would need your intonation on the bass to be "symphonic", in other words, with our tight acoustical guitar work and our precise harmonies, the bass needs to be right on, and I usually pull from local symphonies. Let's keep in touch.
