I was gutted I couldn't make the recent South West bash so wondered, if I can sort a venue, would anyone be interested in a Bristol bash before Xmas. I know it's short notice but I've just had my 2 December gigs cancelled so feel I need something bass related in my life before Xmas!

Pub I was hoping to use is booked and as not much interest in don't think this will happen. Be good to do something next year though.

The South West Bash in October was a great event and I would be very happy to support a Bristol Bash in the New Year.

And I certainly would if something could be arranged. Had some fun at bashes in the past and met some great basschatters...

I've not organised one before but I can try and sort a venue. A pub near me (Bs16 Staple Hill) I've rehearsed at before has a large function room and skittle alley. It's not the prettiest but could be functional and about 5 to 10 min from m32.

The Portcullis?

The other Portcullis opposite Morrison's on Fishponds road also has a decent sized function room. Parking can be a bit of a 'mare, but could be OK if you do it on a Sunday.

Double bass - it's big, it's clever and it does impress people.

Bigguns: Michael Poller carved double bass (Boris) 1950's double bass - probably Musima (Jayne), Eminence EUB (Barbara)

Littleuns: Musicman Sterling - Italia Rimini- Fender ABG

Boxes: Markbass, Euphonic Audio and Hartke amps - BigE MA45 (THE daddy!) - Bill Fitzmaurice Omni 10.5 - Acoustic Image Coda - Roland Microcube

Yup. I'll try and have a chat with the landlord over the weekend unless anyone knows anywhere else. Staple Hill portcullis only has a tiny car park but there is a large public one just behind it.

Me too Cocco - Perhaps if all works out and we're both able to go, we could share transport, depends how much gear we want to take I suppose!

Yes, I'd try really hard to support a Bristol bash (I'm from Taunton). No bass player really, but I'll bring along a gigworthy bass / head / cabinet set up that might raise a few eyebrows.

I can turn up with some vintage basses and guitars if interested?

Also I know a DB luthier who I could potentially ask?
