Upton Bass Endorse! 

Steve Millhouse

Top of the evening to ya.  OK, it looks to you like I'm a day late for Saint Patrick's Day...but it's the 17th while I'm writing this...so cheers!

The ISB convention is coming fast...and serious amounts of wood needs to hit the floor!  Plans are being made, lists are being drawn up and, and like I said...wood is hitting the floor!

Gary is giving away a FREE Revolution Solo to a random "friend" on his FaceBook page when he gets to 1,000 friends!  Don't miss an opportunity to get something for nothing!

So, without further ado, I bring you some Friday night double bass goodness!

And remember...if you have ANY links, news, videos, etc. you want to share (really...please...share!), eMail it to me at eroy@uptonbass.com and I'll be sure to share it.  Oh...and if you just want to say "Hi" you can do that too!

Have a nice weekend!

BILL EVANS "Danny Boy"

What better way to spend an Saint Patrick's Day evening than writing the Upton Report with Bill Evans dripping out of the speakers...


"The Maid at the Well"
