Low Notes for Nashville Kicks Off NAMM Weekend Right

Victor Wooten, Jonas Hellborg and Steve BaileyThe guys from Low Notes for Nashville really know how to throw a party. Low Notes For Nashville – The Benefit Concert was held last night in Nashville, with a non-stop, 4+ hour lineup of bassists performing and sharing stories about Nashville, area musicians and ways to help people impacted by the flooding that took place in May.

Bassists Bryan Beller (performing with Kira Small), Vail Johnson, Roy Vogt, Dave Pomeroy, Steve Lawson, Doug Johns, and bassists/organizers Sean O’Bryan Smith and Lane on Bass all performed and shook the house.

Headliner Steve Bailey started out with a solo piece, mentioned he “didn’t slap”, then called up his first mystery “special guest” (Victor Wooten), and then his second mystery special guest (Jonas Hellborg) for an awesome bass trio performance.

The night closed with Adam Nitti and his band ripping it up.

Look for a DVD and CD of the performance soon, and be sure to check out Low Notes for Nashville. There’s still an opportunity to help.
