Another EGB expedition is planned, this time to Frankfurt.
EGB Members Giulio Negrini from GNG, Edoardo & Enrico DiDonato from DiDonato, Marco Pontillo from Bo-One, Marco Omar Viola from M.O.V and Andrea Ballerina from Manne will exhibit together at the Frankfurter Messe next month. They will be in stand c76 in Hall 11.0.
Their instruments can be tested on a Dressmaker Amp made by Italian boutique amp-maker Marco Ferrari.
EGB Members LeFay, DeGier, Manne and Rikkers have joined their Bass-forces to form up a Basspedition to England. Together they will fill an EGB-stand at the London Bass Guitar Show 2016 with their finest instruments, specially made for the Show. EGB Members Alan Cringean from AC Guitars and Oliver Lang will be attending as well.
There has been no better reason to come to London than on 12 and 13 March. LBGS is not only the largest Bass-Only Show on the planet, it has great Masterclasses in store. The line-up so far: Robert Trujillo from Metallica, Suzi Quatro, Dave Swift from Jools and Adele, Peter Hook from Joy Division, Michael Manring and John ‘Rhino’ Edwards from Status Quo.
And as icing on this pretty thick cake: the LBGS will be screening the UK premiere of the world’s first documentary about LBGS star Robert Trujillo’s hero Jaco Pastorius.
If that doesn't get you to London nothing will....
The festival "Graines de Guitare" will celebrate it's third edition next weekend. 16 luthiers and 12 guitar-related exhibitors and a rich musical program awaits the visitor.
The Ottawa Guitar Show will take place June 21st, 2015 -quite a few of the HGGS exhibitors will be there to show their instruments!
We have created a Facebook group for the EGB. It was evident that we needed to find better ways to communicate among group members & this seems to be the simplest and easiest way. I have added all members I could through the contacts I have. There are quite a few missing - so email me or ask to be added to the group!
The fb group is for internal communication - it is a closed group accessible to all full members who have paid up their dues. So, post, converse, keep up to date!
This EGB blog on the EGB page will continue with news and posts which are interesting to all, not just members. Once we have the new website up and running we will also have an EGB forum, with different access levels and dedicated threads.
