Bass workshop in Bingen
Attention bass players: Join Charlie Escher for a bass workshop on Sunday, Sept. 29, from 1-4 p.m. at the Bingen Theater, 210 Oak St., Bingen, Wash. Admission is free; minors okay with adult guardian.
This will be a great networking opportunity for working players, hobbyists, DIY musical gear builders, music educators, and local musicians looking for a good bass player. Participants are encouraged to bring their bass and amp gear, as there is lots of hands-on playing at these events, and usually a lot of gear you will never see in your local music store.
A drummer will be on hand for the last hour to accompany players, as well as a 1,000-watt all-tube bass amp from Insanity Amps.
