London Bass Guitar Show declared a success
The London Bass Guitar Show has been declared a success by organisers after almost 2,000 people attended the event.
Held at the Olympia venue last weekend (March 12th and 13th), the conference saw a range of exhibitors promoting their wares, along with a number of live performances.
Hugo Montgomery-Swan, the managing director of Oyster House Media, which organised the event, explained he was pleased with how it went.
"The spirit and sense of community was tangible throughout, with everyone, including the performing artists, revelling in the genuinely positive atmosphere of this dedicated music show," he said.
Mr Montgomery-Swan hinted a 2012 version of the London Bass Guitar Show could now be on the cards after the positive reaction to this year's gathering.
Among the musicians who attended was Bruce Foxton, known for his work on the bass guitar in both The Jam and Stiff Little Fingers.
He was there to help promote Rotosound's range of products, with the company also enlisting Wishbone Ash founding member Martin Turner for this task.
Another bassist to appear at the manufacturer's stand was Paul Geary, who has worked with the likes of George Michael and Simply Red in the past.
