Midlands Bass Bash 5 Feat. Basschat Custom Bass Show 1 - 05/05/2018

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Celebrating it's 5th Birthday and incorporating the best Basschat luthiers in their very own Basschat Custom Bass show,

The Midlands Bass Bash 2018 is taking place on the 5th May 2018 from 1200 to 1700.

The venue is

Brockington College,
Blaby Road,
Enderby,
Leicester,
LE19 4AQ

It's easy to get to from J21 of the M1. Take the A5460 and at the first roundabout turn right onto the B4114 towards Narborough. Carry on the B4114 past Fosse Park on the right until you get to another roundabout. Turn right here onto Blaby road, the B582. Follow this road and once you cross the motorway Brockington College is the next left.

In the left hand corner of the car park is direct access to the front of the school. If you want to use that to unload that's fine, but it would be appreciated if you would then park in the car park proper afterwards. The room we are using is the first door on the left, just beyond the disabled parking bays. We'll try and get a sign up with an arrow!

There is a firm limit of 7 amp rigs in the room but if you have one handmade by dusky thighed maidens that is acoustically perfect in every way then I'll make an exception to the rule! The room isn't huge and I'd like to be able to hear afterwards and be allowed back next year :)

We're going to ask for a £5 entry fee on the day. On the off chance enough people turn up to cover the costs any extra will be donated to a charity voted for by the attendees.

I think that's about it, any other information will appear in this post at the top of the thread and then be bumped.

Can any possible/definite/probably attendees put their names on the list so we have a reasonable idea of how many to expect.

Argh! That's the same day as Mrs Bassbiscuit's birthday. I'll have to see what I can do, but would love to come.

 

Go on, give her a real treat and bring her along.

Having missed last year's I'm looking forward to this one.

Loved it last year, will be there again this year. Hopefully will have a few new pieces of gear to bring, and may bring the big amp too as it sat at home last year.

Lets be honest though, we're all looking forward to the cake the most.

Anyone in/around Castle Bromwich/ North or East Birmingham that needs a lift I am happy to pick up on the way. So long as your gear fits in the Fiesta.

Genius! Yeah I'll tell her I've got a surprise planned. Something a bit different, and with cake involved. How could she resist?

I have to say, and maybe this should be in the original post, that I can't guarantee cake.  That's up to the attendees if they wish to supply any ;)

I've not built a bass yet, but I will bring along the completed Nozcaster if you don't mind such blasphemy.

Hoping to make it this year, however we are awaiting confirm a repeat booking on the 4th, if last time is anything to go by there could be an epic lock-in type situation going on so I may not be at my best on Saturday.

I suppose I'd better bump this as May is drawing nigh

 

There could be a cake-off, but then Jo would only be allowed to bring one cake :(

I'm in.

Can I bum a lift from anyone going past Spondon please?  I'm ready to contribute to fuel costs.

I'll travel light with my Pitbull and no amp unless called upon to bring one.

Are people bringing their custom built cabs too?  I have worrying tendencies towards cabinet making.

I am still not sure if I can make it, do t think by build will be finished by then either but I will try.
