Hey I will be in California between 07/16 and 08/10
hoping to catch up with some folks while I am there.
Definitely have to hit the factory for some TLC for my bass.
Probably a complete refurb!

I was just talking to Will about possible dates for the annual event. Thinking May-ish this year. Will keep y'all posted of course.

However... anytime Slawie is in town we will hold a gathering in his honor.

Actually, May 11th is Mother's day, so that's 2 reasons not to do it then.

Any other weekend is fine with me. These things are great fun!!

I was just thinking the other day--"February, and a "young" man's thoughts turn to a NorCal Alembic gathering". Obviously I was not alone. At this point I'm incredibly available.

I'm discussing dates with Will in April, May and June. Hope to have something more solid in the next couple of weeks.

We're penciling in June 7 at this point.

There's a small chance we might do it out at the ranch this year with an outdoor stage and the inside for chatting and snacking. There is one building with AC out there, so extreme overheating shouldn't be a problem.

Then again, we might just do it in Oakland again.

Oakland was nice last time . The ranch has been really beautiful as well but not as easily accessible as Oakland. Where ever it will be, it will be fun again .

Thanks Bill.

I'm gonna hook up w/ all the left coast Alembicians someday, hopefully the stars will align sooner than later....

If I'm a no-show, check the Merced river....I might have a bad case of gold fever....

Bummer Ken - was hoping maybe your gig was at night so you could swing by during the day...

I've got a gig that night too so I doubt I'd be able to make it given the 11 hour flight time from the Uk to San Francisco. Someday I'll be back over though :-)

What happened to May? I like May 13th, but then, who doesn't?! All God's chilrens love my birthday! Will my bass be done???? If so, a perfect excuse to go get it and bring a friend to adventure with. Meant to go to the last one or two, but I was too sickly. This will be probably my first and last, so I would like to have some fun while out and about. Woof! Would Sonicus like it if I brought an old Yamaha 2200 as a door prize? How about a rack of em? Too much? Too little? Need any airport horns (Altec's large format drivers with Gauss bottoms for a few more db on the PA to be supplied? Need a PA supplied?! Got wireless mics? I don't. Note, if I have to show up Alembic-less, I will not be the life of the party, given . . . Otherwise, I am in an adventurous mood this spring.

Hi Thomas ___
It would be great to see you there with or without any gear. You remembered how much I like those old Yamaha P -2200/2201's ! LOL ___ I have one right here in back of me as I write this, powering the lows as part of my playback system.

June 21st will probably be bad for me. I was hoping for the 7th. I will be down somewhere around the beginning of the month of June. looking forward to seeing some of you at that time.

Bill: if you are coming up to PDX let me know if you want to catch up. We can have a mini gathering at Slick Nick's new venue!

Nick:

Tina and I will be driving up next month. I'm speaking on a panel on Thursday, May 8th, at the Patients Out of Time conference held this year in Portland. We'll be in town at least until that Saturday. I'm planning on bringing a guitar or two (probably an electric and an acoustic). It would be cool to get together.

Bill, tgo
