Sorry I'm late guys, been busy.

Gig was AMAZING. My favourite gig so far.

Date: 16/02/2013
Location/venue: The Jolly Sailor, Portsmouth
Band: Mr. Big Stuff, 8 piece funk, soul & Motown covers.

Since I started playing, all I've wanted is a band with a horn section and one that people dance too. Saturday fulfilled both.

For the duration of the gig I used my squier VM Precision, through a Polytune mini, and my DOD FX25b. From there I used the balanced out on the BH250 and straight through the PA. This was a great idea on paper, but resulted in me having to play near on the entire gig blind.

When the time came, I donned the BC polo, reached for the baton, and ran through our rendition of Dee-Lite's "Groove is in the heart".

I had a fantastic time, had a few drinks, even got ordered to do a solo during an extended break in "we are family".

All in all, fantastic. Obviously, I'm aware that without photos, it never happened. They're only camera phone jobs, but people of basschat...here is your proof:

Annoyingly, the only pictures I have (so far), I'm in serious mode. However, most of the night I was smiling and dancing.

Hey,
I don't really have a free evening to pick it up from anywhere this week, but if it's still around Pompey at the weekend, I'd give a plunk for a song or two on Saturday.

I'm there Friday :-p (apparently). Do you just want it for the night? When's best for you to grab it? You said you're busy evenings, I've tomorrow off work, failing that, it'd be evenings or Saturday morning for me.

Does anyone Know how to share Google Earth files?

I can and will do a simple map trace like that in the first thread , but I was thinking I could do a google earth trace so that it could be followed in detail but I cant suss how to share the route on Earth or whether peeps would follow it at such detail , I could easily do the route and save as a picture and refresh that for each event .

Any prefs Jim / Bcers ?

Bit late with this but, yes - right click the placemarker file under 'places' on the left hand side bar and it gives an option to email it. Works a treat - I emailed my entire route of a recent Mexico trip, uploaded from a datalogger.

Edit - I am sure I have missed it, but is there a running order for this yet?

Ha Ha , every time I think I have got somewhere , the bar gets raised :D , Is it do-able? it might be the FB page admin that needs to do that if it is possible but I will see if I can do it from the map end. I was trying to add photos to the place tags but that is beyond me at the minute . :blush:

I'm just sticking all the names into a spreadsheet. If you've signed up, you'll very shortly get a PM regarding contact details to go with this.

Once this has been completed, a copy will travel with the bass and every member involved will receive a copy of the list too.


If you haven't signed up...why not?


P.S we now have QR codes to go along with the bass and for members to push.

No idea how to sign up. Please let me know.
