On September 29th, I gave a workshop/performance at BassUp 2007 held at the Atlanta Bass Gallery. It was a wonderful day of performances and clinics featuring the bass talents of: Jeff Schmidt, Bernhard Lackner, Christopher “C3′ Cardone, Gary Wilkens, Russ Rodgers, Darren Michaels, Myron Bennell Carroll and Trip Wamsley.
Darren & CindyMichaels organized this event (as they have for several years). Kudos to the both of them! They were so respectful to all the participating artists and they made extra efforts to see that BassUp ran smoothly. Darren is such a talented artist in his own right and is a thoughtful and engaging human being. Much love goes out to Darren & Cindy Michaels for organizing such a great day.
In addition, Jim Rubio (owner of the Atlanta Bass Gallery) was so very gracious to host this event. By the end of the day, Jim had virtually given everyone in attendance numerous promotional items such as strings, shirts, stands and even a $1000 dollar bass preamp. Regardless of where you live, if you need any bass gear, you should contact the Atlanta Bass Gallery. Jim Rubio is providing an amazing service to bass players everywhere!
All in all, I was honored to have been asked to participate in BassUp 2007. I always enjoy meeting lovers of the low end:)
