Rupert's Rooftop Bass Lounge
In this episode we check in with Bass extraordinaire Eric Rupert and discuss gear, life in the music industry, trade shows, working with musical companies, touring with famous artists and adapting to life in 2021. There's also some great advice for aspiring players and lots of fun stories from over 30 years in the business. Check out links for Eric and his endorsed companies below.
Here's a live-streaming event we performed on Nov 15, 2020 at Vista Point Studios in the UK. A mix of the original music of J Fashole Luke and standards with a twist in an intimate trio setting.

The Finger Ramp
Here I am demoing The Finger Ramp designed by Luca Merlatti from Italy. I really love the radius and how comfortable it feels to play over, you don't even realise it's there, but super helpful for the fast stuff and with assures consistent pressure.
