Bassists 4 Bassists @ MSMS!

Interview with Bangor Bassists 4 Bassists: “Every time I leave I’ve picked up a few pointers…”
Bangor’s chapter of Bassists 4 Bassists meets monthly at Main Street Music Studios on Main Street in Bangor. The second Tuesday of every month from 8 to 10 pm the front room of the studio becomes a relaxed forum for jamming, talking about technique and discussing equipment. Brad O’Brien, who helped found the group and recruited many of its members, was unable to make it the night I stopped in, but his name came up more than a few times.
The meeting began with the three participants (there are sometimes as many as six or seven in attendance, but the count varies) talking equipment, plugging in and quietly playing. A guy passes through from one of the rooms in the back of the building. “Can you mod MXR pedals?” he asks Ken, a veteran bass player who performs with a couple of area bands. The guy rattles off some specs. Ken nods. “Yeah, that’s something I’d consider. Give me a call.” This is clearly the place to go for bass questions of all kinds.

To connect with Bassists 4 Bassists, visit their Facebook page, or come down to Main Street Music Studios on the second Tuesday of the month.
