Post Stick Night, climb on the "Stickband" wagon
An email from Emmett:

Welcome to a most unique "Stick Night" featuring the revival of the late '70s "STICKBAND" with JIM BRUNO (EVI and NS/Stick), BOB CULBERTSON (Grand Stick) and BOB COOPER (drums), also with Stick artists DON SCHIFF, BOB and myself (EMMETT) in various solo and duo combinations or with drums.

It will be held Saturday, Sept. 23rd, 2017, starting at 7:30 PM in the rear theater of The Guitar Merchant music store in Canoga Park, CA.

STICKBAND of San Jose has a new Website about its music, players and history at:

BOB CULBERTSON of Sevastopol on 12-string "Grand Stick".
To view a viral video of how his Stick "Gently Weeps", please go to:

DON SCHIFF on the NS/Stick bass guitar including a half fretless model, combining all manner of simultaneous tapping and plucking techniques with just 2 hands on 8 strings (and some creative looping thrown in).

EMMETT CHAPMAN on his gold Railboard, also improvising in trio with drums and electronic trumpet. I've worked up a solo arrangement of "Black Velvet (if you please)" and some other well known hits, which I'll methodically tear apart, then try to put back together again.

The acoustics and ambience are excellent in Phil's medium sized rear theater and Bill's sound system is tailored perfectly to the room to provide just the right balance and ambience for audience and players.

Oh I so wish I could go but alas Canada is not so close. Wish it could be broadcast at some point.
