I'll be there!!!! Hopefully this time I won't be nursing a massive nosebleed! That was a strange experience which kept me off the 'shop floor' for waaaay too long!

This time I'll do more playing and hanging out with my favourite type of people!

Memory's going, is it Dan? Oh dear. Part and parcel of getting old, I'm afraid. Pretty soon you'll be dribbling down yourself, taking afternoon naps and saying things like "In the olden days..." ;) Not to mention repeating yourself and losing track of what you were

errm

I'll be exhibiting there. Nervous. It'll be my first one as an attendee let alone as an exhibitor. Everybody at the Manson's Show was regaling me with horror stories of what it's like.

Would love to meet everybody so make a point of coming by and saying "Hi" :D

Have you been listening to the usual whiny voices of those who bemoan the excessive slapping and high volume, and then turn their amp to 10 and slap the hell out of their bass as soon as they find an available spot at a stand?
No, the LBGS is nowhere near as bad as its detractors describe it (they may well have an agenda in doing so). It's noisy, yes, incredibly hard work, yes, exhausting, certainly. But great fun.
I will be around both days, with my cameras, and will certainly come to your stand, say hi, and take pics. Lots of 'em. :) :D :sun_bespectacled:

I will be there for both days this time. Last year I did just Sunday and so missed all the Saturday masterclasses / performances. The show itself can be run through in a day, but the classes / performances are a must do for me.

Becky! She's great -- she depped for me once, although for my band it must have been a bit like having an Aston Martin courtesy car while the Mondeo was being fixed.

We will be announcing our first artist for the 2016 show very soon - a bass legend who has been described as "a master of the fretless bass without rival". Who could it be?

I'll be there. both days this time. It's easy to avoid any excessive slapping in the main hall by going to all the amazing performances and master classes. Which is what I intend to do, as usual. :-)
