While there is no substitute for a real bass guitarist, the absence of one allows us to take the music anywhere we want to. Our goal is to take our audience on a journey with us
Burlingame, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) April 27, 2011
BASSment, a band based in San Francisco, will be performing live at the Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant in San Jose on Friday, May 6. The restaurant, located at 33 E. San Fernando Street is the place to go to for customers wanting to experience a night of great music.
Organist Kevin Wong created this band largely due to his appreciation for funk band Soulive. Like Soulive, Kevin plays bass lines with his left hand while simultaneously playing chords, melodies, and solos with his right hand. “While there is no substitute for a real bass guitarist, the absence of one allows us to take the music anywhere we want to. Our goal is to take our audience on a journey with us.”
BASSment features the multi-talented left-handed bassist and organist Kevin Wong, the incredible Nate Mercereau on guitar, drummer extraordinaire Dante McClinton on drums, and saxophonist Daniel Casares. The group’s May 6th performance will give customers a rare opportunity to catch their flagship lineup and the ability to listen to the group’s original songs that have never been heard before.
Admission is free, so customers can have dinner while enjoying BASSment’s music. For those who want to purchase a copy of the group’s music, DVDs and CDs are now available.
