Bass Player LIVE! — the ultimate gear-clinics-and-hang-with-stars event for bassists and lovers of bass guitar — is THIS weekend, November 8 and 9, at S.I.R. Studios on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, CA.
To honor the late bass legend Jack Bruce, BPL! has just added a fantastic tribute set to the Saturday night "after hours" event that also includes Abraham Laboriel being bestowed with BASS PLAYER's Lifetime Achievement Award and Dirty Loops bassist Henrik Linder being recognized as this year’s Young Gun.
Presented by Warwick, the Bruce tribute is slated to include bassists Lee Sklar and Steve Bailey, guitarist Marc Bonilla, and drummer Joe Travers. The set is scheduled for 6 pm - 7 pm in the Warwick Room.
Warwick is also offering a commemorative Jack Bruce poster for all Bass Player LIVE! attendees throughout the November 8-9 weekend.
BASS PLAYER also compiled a video tribute to Jack Bruce, edited by Max Plutte. Bruce was a master. He'll be missed.
