Why the formal introduction? I thought it was a pretty shweet way to introduce an event described as a “support group for bass addicts!”
The workshop will be hosted by 2 of PE (and Cort Guitars) finest bassists: Edgar “EddieBass” Muzah and Earl “Breezy” Baartman. The idea was birthed when Eddie witnessed similar workshops (Bass Camp 101, Joburg Bass Day) while he was on the road.
Conversation started flowing and the 2 maestros’ decided to put pedal to the metal and formed 2MuchBass. Their vision for the workshop is to birth a hub where people can exchange information, all in the spirit of musicianship. (Much like what Groove Station is about, yo!)
Well celebrated bass guitarists in their own right, these gents have been making waves on the SA music scene for a while. Breezy is a permanent member of SA diva Lira’s repertoire and often performs with other great names.
Eddie has shared a stage with legends such as Nathi, Asanda Bam and Amanda Black to name a few. He is passionate about skills development and recognizes the lack of female bassists in PE. With this in mind, he put out a call to all would be female bass players. His dream is to train 3 of them up, at no cost. That’s pretty dope. This event is the start of many great things in the PE muso scene.
I’ve heard rumors of giveaways and a question and answer session, and guys, it’s all for FREE. These 2 will be sharing their time and knowledge for FREE. Yeah man, I said FREE. Free lectures (#feesmustfall?), free live tutorials and a free question and answer session.
