Bristol Bash

Recommended Posts

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.

I'd come along to a Bristol bash.

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.

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.
