London Bass Guitar Show 2017

For the best part of this year life got majorly in the way of my music blogging, but I finally managed to sift through my photos of the event back in March – here they are!

This year, once again, the show was mostly populated by smaller companies whose offerings have nothing to envy the big names for.

The Main Hall was as busy as ever:

And so was the Entrance Hall:

We spotted a few well known faces in the crowd. Here is Dave Swift with fiancee Lucy (and Bump, now lovely baby Oscar) talking to Andrew Gouche

Once again, we enjoyed some mesmerising performances and masterclasses.

A first this year was the opening of an additional room, the teaching centre:  Scott Devine’s lessons

Here he is surrounded by students and fellow tutor Steve Lawson.

There’s no missing a single resonant vibration with this bolt-on system and the through-body strings.

And they make beautiful, lightweight, personalised aluminium knobs, and appropriate earrings!
