BASSIST COMPETITION (article first published : 2006-03-23)

Marshall Music Midlands has kindly donated a Warrick Rock Bass Guitar and an Ashdowne Meg 300 Combo Bass Amplifier to the value of R10, 500 for a bassist competition to take place on the SAMRO Free Stage at Splashy Fen 2006 Music Festival which will take place over the Easter Weekend from April 13 to 17.

On Sunday afternoon one lucky talented bass guitarist will pick up the bass guitar and amplifier, load it into his/her car for their trip home on Monday.

In order to enter, bassists have to be at Splashy Fen 2006. There are three heats - the programme for times is available at www.splashyfen.co.za

Competitors are requested to arrive early in order to put their name down at the SAMRO Free Stage. Two bassists per heat will go through to the finals which will take place on the Sunday afternoon (April 16). In order to be eligible for the competition, bassists may not be signed to a Record Label or be a professional musician and they may not use their own bass guitar or amplifier. They will be required to walk on the stage pick up the bass guitar and play, there is no rehearsal time.

Bassists will need to do a solo of not more than two minutes (heats) and three minutes (finals). Marshall Music Midlands and Splashy Fen will be the judges.

Marshall Music Midlands will be at Splashy Fen this year providing a service backstage for the musicians and the backline for the SAMRO Free Stage. Pay them a visit at the SAMRO Free Stage to see the latest range of musical instruments etc.
