There would have been more bass this weekend if I could have gotten into the Cincinnati Bass Cellar – unfortunately, it’s by appointment, and I didn’t have one. As it was, I did get to play around with a couple 8-strings at a music store near the University of Cincinnati for a bit, which was fun. I usually don’t find one, but they had an Ibanez and Travis Bean right there. I was down there for Midpoint Music Festival, which had some interesting talk and good performances available for all. Nice work!
Sunday concluded with Marcus Miller at the Indy Jazz Fest, and the sound and performance was amazing – both inspiring and humbling.
I’m also finalizing plans for a “basscation” in Chicago in a couple weeks, including shows by Meshell Ndegeocello and Dethklok and a stop at the Chicago bass-related music stores. Any suggestions?
