DarielB – Flying Under the Radar

What a week!

Posted in Music Stories by darielb on March 10, 2011

Victor Wooten's slapping and thumb-picking bass techniques was something to see!

The Grand Strand was the place to be this past week. Bass extremists Steve Bailey and Victor Wooten performed two awesome shows at Coastal Carolina. Whoa! South By Southeast brought the rockin’ Randall Bramblett Band back for another SRO crowd. I’m surprised the Train Depot is still standing. Green Dot Records had its CD release party for the Holiday Band’s latest recording, Sweet Love, and it was sweet. I love these guys.

Up at Ocean Drive there were two big deejay events. The Association of Beach and Shag Club DeeJays held its annual DJ Throwdown. Sure wish I could have made their James Hunter show on Saturday night!  Duck’s Beach Club held its first annual DJ Appreciation party – four days of partying, that is, including a show by the mighty, mighty Tams of Hotlanta! I managed to catch the final set for Jim Quick & Coastline at Fat Harold’s on Sunday. Stay tuned for more news about this bad boy.

Myrtle Beach's own Steve Bailey is the master of the six-string fretless.

Randall Bramblett rocks with the best of them!
