Tickets are now available for next years Moffat Bass Bash.

We have Dave Swift joining us for the weekend.

All the details can be found at:

http://www.moffatbassbash.co.uk

More info will be added as we get nearer to the event.

As always there are a limited number of weekend and Sunday tickets so very much first come first served.

Alan

I can strongly recommend this. Great venue, plenty of gear to try out; Dave Swift coming along; and the not inconsiderable matter of afternoon cakes provided by team Cringean, including the now legendary luminous green jelly ones.

Curry night on the Saturday preceded by a dry sherry or two. What's not to like; roll up, roll up.
Basses: ACG, Fender, Sandberg, Squier

Amps/Cabs: Ampeg / Genz Benz / Barefaced

What have I told people about publicising the jelly slices? THEY'RE ALL MINE! ;)

Anyone thinking is coming along for the weekend should think about booking a ticket sooner rather than later.

This sounds like it's going to be a hard act to follow for the rest of us putting on Bashes later in the year...
