Gerald Veasley’s Bass BootCamp and EXPO 2013

Gerald Veasley's Bass BootCampFor over ten years, Gerald Veasley’s Bass BootCamp has been inspiring bassists through its annual event, and the connections those bassists and clinicians maintain virtually throughout the year.

For the last few years, No Treble staffers have attended the show to cover it, and witnessed the terrific connection these bass players make, not to mention the tremendous learning they experience.

So it is with great pleasure that we announce that No Treble is the official media sponsor for both the Camp, and the new Expo they’ve started.
