Thump Music is proud to present Victor Wooten in an exclusive Australian bass clinic tour. After an extremely successful tour last year, Victor has jumped on board with Thump to do it all again. This year will be bigger and better and we’re all very excited to offer you the opportunity to see one of the world’s best up close and personal. This year we will be traveling to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to learn from one of the modern day masters.
Thump is proud to support Australian bass artists and we’re committed to bringing you the best the country has to offer. Traveling with Victor this year is Australian bass phenom, Dane Alderson. Dane hails from Perth, WA and is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in the jazz world. Dane is innovative and displays virtuosic control of his instrument. Dane has played for top jazz artists like James Morrison as well as pop and R&B artists around Australia. Prepare to be blown away by one of Australia’s best kept secrets! Check out some of his clips below.
Dane will be presenting a short clinic to open the night which will contain an overview of his approach to technique, practice, improvisation and more.
Also on tour this year will be some new basses from master luthier Pavel De La Fuente. Dane will be playing his new Pavel Aryel 5 string as well as his Tecamp Puma 1000. You will be able to get your hands on the basses and amps to try them out in person. We’re working on getting Pavel over here in person to talk about his basses and to answer any questions you may have. We will keep you posted! Pavel is an expert on wood selection and building techniques and is passionate about building exactly what you want.
Victor will then take the stage and if you were there last year, you will have an idea of what to expect! His playing will blow you away and that’s a given, but the real gold is his ability to teach and talk about his musical language. He will challenge you with WHY you play just as much as HOW. He will be covering topics not covered in previous sessions so please do everything in your power to be there. The response we received after last years tour has truly humbled us and we are ecstatic to be able to offer this opportunity again to you and also to those of you who have never seen him live. Spread the word as far and as wide as possible and don’t let your friends miss out!
We will also be giving away a FLEABASS and some MONO product at each clinic. You will be automatically in the draw for this when you purchase a ticket. You will also receive a Thump showbag containing $29.95 worth of goodies.
