    NAMM officially starts tomorrow, but I came a day early to visit my niece and nephew, and then hang out with a bunch of bassers at Downtown Disney. Thanks again to @Andy Brown and @TonyP- for helping to get into NAMM this year.

    The evening started with me trying to keep up with the kids playing Just Dance on the Nintendo Switch. I got so sweaty, I had to go back to my room and clean up before I could hit the Uva Bar.

    It appears that I was lagging behind, because I got a text from someone asking where I was. Our very own @BassCliff

    Chance Wilder Onody was present https://www.chancewilderonody.com/
    He was at the Tsunami Bass Hang, and is a tremendous talent.

    The life of the party:

    All the bassists were hanging with Steve Araujo of the Bass Hang

    Cliff wasn't playing Downtown Disney this year, but Carmel Helene was. Her bassist is Tkai (not sure on how to spell his name).

    And to end the night, our very own @lowendmafia challenged me to name a perfect album.

    And to those of you who may wonder....YES, all NAMM pictures are welcome here. The more the merrier.

    My thoughts are 1) there is a sort of common bassist 'look' even when you don't all look alike and 2) who are any of these people, beyond the forum members?

    I am bassically - nobody.... I play bass (as well as a few other instruments) in a few San Francisco based bands. Currently I am between day-jobs and doing my best to network my way towards viable music industry, music journalism or music related way to earn a living.

    I've wrangled a media pass in support of Pantheon / Rock and Roll Archaeology Project and will be at NAMM shooting a video blog/vlog for my brand new website (Tedtoob.com) which currently features links to more than 1500 live vid caps of performances from SF / Bay Area and West Coast bands and artists.

    I plan on snapping a ton of bass related content, interviews and live performances from NAMM and to cross post here...

    Stay tuned (and in tune)

    PS: I hope to connect and say hey Wintermute!
