Double bass luthier Martin Sheridan has moved back to the United States after spending some time enjoying the good life down in Mexico. Martin has been an active luthier in metro Chicago and Iowa for many years, and I have had many students purchase instruments from him over the years.
Martin is throwing a bass party on Sunday, August 23 from 1-6 pm at his place in Sycamore, IL. Details from Martin are included below:
The First Annual Bass Barbecue is set for August 23, a Sunday, from 1:00 ’till 6:00.
It’s an open house for bass players, their spouse, partner, significant other or friend.
Location: 129 Thomas Drive Sycamore, Illinois (map link)
We are going to barbecue pork and make a salad or two. You can bring a side, and what you want to drink. We’ll fix some Boca Burgers for those don’t eat meat, or bring your own specialty.
If you like bring your bass to show and play or have Martin look at for an evaluation.
We’re doing this just for fun; a chance for bassist to get together at the end of the summer and have some fun.
Please RSVP Martin Sheridan at firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how many or coming. It’s at my daughter and son-in-laws house which has a nice big back yard and covered area in case it rains.
If I forgot anything, let me know. I’m looking forward to it.
