I don't know if any of you have been keeping up with Lane Baldwin (our own Blues Bass Guru and Lane on Bass) but he's had a rough go of it lately. I'll let him tell it in his own words:
"Hi, Roy, and thanks for the call. I really appreciate your ideas to help the financial situation. Below are some of the bullet points about what's going on. Feel free to share in any way you see fit.
I came down with flu-like symptoms on January 1st. Didn't go to

We had a great time at Roy Vogt's 3rd Annual Thunder Row Bass Bash in Nashville on Friday night. The clips are starting to come in....
Here's Atlanta Bassist Joseph Patrick Moore and his band.
Contact Joseph here. He has recorded and released 6 CDs and is worth keeping up with.
Hey everyone! I just wanted to let all out in Thunder Row Land know that there will be a great Bass Event at Douglas Corner Cafe on Friday, July 12 during the Summer NAMM Show. That's right, its the Third Annual Roy Vogt's Thunder Row Bass Bash with some very fine Bassists playing very fine Music for a very Great Cause-the W O Smith Community Music School. Tickets are $10 at the door and the show starts at 7 pm with some amazing players!
After a few years flying under the radar, Jazz Bass Icon Jeff Andrews is back on the scene. Here is a link to his Facebook Band Page
Jeff is best known for his work with Mike Stern, Steps Ahead, Vital Information and as Jimmy Haslip's sub in the Yellowjackets from time to time. He is a disciple of Jaco who hung out with him and learned from him in NY in the early 80s. Here are some of my favorite Jeff moments.
I will be doing something new this coming Saturday-a Virtual House Concert with fellow TMBG Band Member Tim McDonald. This is not unlike a house concert, we perform a short set as a duo on piano and bass (very likely songs from my two CDs and the Tim McDonald II CD we recorded with Chester Thompson on drums). It will be a really interesting experience for me, and if some of my TMBG friends and fans would like to join me and Tim, we'd be honored! It's 6-6:30 pm CDT at this link:
