Yeah, I'd be up for that.
Wouldn't want to embarrass myself by playing though :oops:

What do you think Steve?

Yeah sounds great to me. It's been a very long time coming.
Sometime after the 18th I guess a Kaha?

You are more than welcome to. It would mean you guys could all get up and jam while I sit at the bar and drink beer :D

It is however a good idea, even if its a random night of the week (as getting a bunch of muso's together on weekends is quite challenging).

Cheers for that, all sounds cool :mrgreen:

I'm flying in on the 18th of Oct and will spend a couple of weeks looking for share accomodation around Ponsonby, Freemans Bay, Grey Lynn, Mt Eden, Balmoral, Grafton, Newmarket etc. want to be as close to the city as possible for work and easy access to MAINZ.

I just got my bass back today from the local luthier, all modifications complete. Haven't played in nearly 10 years as the photography career was pretty much all consuming :cry:

After 20 mins playing I realized I sound like shite :roll: my playing is loose, timing out, intonation is sloppy and I'm gonna have to develop blisters and new calluses on my fingers again :shock:

I'm gonna lock myself in my room for the next 12 months and will only come out for work, study or the Bassplayer meet 'n' greet :lol:

Sounds like there are poeple up for it, so all it is going to take is a nomination for where and when.... somewhere central, close to town, in a couple of weeks (so I can orgainise the leave pass from the mrs) would be good for me.
Any suggestions fellas?

I hear The Kings Arms Tavern is a live music icon http://www.kingsarms.co.nz :P

or if you want something a little more modern 'Cassette Number Nine' is the new kid on the block http://www.cassettenine.com :wink:

Yep I'd be keen. Played through a Markbass on that gig the other night, sparked up my interest again.
