Steve Lawson & Michael Manring London 2010

Proper looking forward to my trip to London tomorrow. I’ve got loads of things to get done. But the main reason for going is to see bass supremos Michael Manring and Steve Lawson perform at a gig in Islington.

The last time they both gigged in London I couldn’t make it (check out the video below). Quite frankly I was gutted as I had recently been studying with Steve at the Beyond Bass Camp classes and have been a long term fan of both his and Manrings work.

Neither musician is limited by a traditional view of the instrument (bare in mind the bass guitar as we know it is only 50 or so years old), couple this to virtuosic ability and a high level of musicality and this event should be great. I

’ll try and review the gig and may be get some video done too, but for now check out the clip from last years performance:



BTW in the last video the students Steve mentions at 0:34 is the class I was at, fact 😉
