    I've noticed from a lot of the profiles that most of the members seem to be from the east coast. Are there any other west coast bassists out here besides myself?

    No...? Good! More gigs for me:)

    Hi All,

    I am a Left Coast bassist, a transplant actually. Originally from New Jersey, living out here for 20 years. I can definately say I have been exposed to things that I would have only dreamed about in ole' Asbury Park. My website is http://bassland.com and I invite those who have not been ther eto stop by.

    I am based on the South Coast - and will be playing two gigs in the next two weekends on the beach - at Hove and Shoreham-by-sea! Hoping for sun - probably forlorn in England :(

  8. I spent my first twentyone years in Huntington Beach. When I realized that I didn't surf anylonger, played in enough crappy punk bands and had my car broken into enough times I moved to Scottsdale AZ. Somewhere along the lines I ended up out here in Charlottesville, Virginia. Don't get me wrong- I miss H.B. and some of So. Cal- not the 91/55/405 or the 5- and definitely not the HBPD.

    The music scene in Charlottesville is fantastic- and since most of the guys in my band, Lyman, are from San Diego area we have a different sound than most of the bands in the area.
