In the event that the calendar posts get filtered out in some peoples views, I though I would post this here too.
Hey folks, a few of us DC folks are looking to put together another
dobro gathering that I will be hosting. We've done this event twice
before, with the idea to get a bunch of different resos in the house to
sample and A-B. Lot's of fun. Last time we had 30+. The first one was
written up nicely by Howard Parker on Reso-Guit.
were looking to do it again. At least three of us are in, and our
instruments include 5 Scheerhorns, 2 Harpers, 2 Deneves, a Regal
roundneck (modern), 1 Leadbetter Dobro 7 string. There should also be a
handful of weissnborn style instruments and maybe an electric or two. I
think I also a commitment from a 4th player who has a great 1930s
Regal. The last gathering around 4 years ago even included special
guest Mike Auldridge.
So if you're anywhere nearby and
interested in coming - drop me a line. We're trying to pull together
our list from the last meeting to be sure we get in touch with everyone
- but haven't reached out all the way yet. Also have yet to post on
The date is set for November 6th. Not sure of
the exact time yet, but most likely it will be in the afternoon. Hot
Rize is at the Birchmere that night so I want to be able to go there
too (if I can work it out).
