Every fall in Los Angeles Bass Player magazine stages their legendary Bass Player Live! event. Bass Player Live! is a 2-day gathering of the world’s greatest bass players, bass manufacturers, fans and students.
The event, which calls SIR in Hollywood home, culminates at a giant awards show/all-star concert. Bass Player Live! brings players, manufacturers, and artists together in an intimate environment for hands-on access to the latest instruments, equipment and instruction on playing technique and application. This exciting two-day event consists of inspiring clinics and workshops for players of all levels, coupled with manufacturer exhibits to showcase current basses and equipment to the bass community at large.
The 2013 Bass Player Live! Concert, presented by Hartke, is set to take place at the famed Fonda Theater and will honor Black Sabbath’s Geezer Butler, upright bass legend, Stray Cat's Lee Rocker and jazz-rock phenom Tal Wilkenfeld. This 31,000-square-foot 1920’s-era concert venue is located on Hollywood Boulevard and has a capacity of 1,200. At Bass Player Live! it’s all about bass and the men and women who have become masters of the instrument.
