CELEBRATE some of the country’s most gifted bassists tomorrow night as Musketeers in Westville hosts the annual Bass Day. The event unites bass players from all over the country and the MCs for the evening include Glen Turrell (bass player) Paul Fuhri and T-Bone (radio personality). A press release states that Bass Day 2015 was held last year which was a first for South Africa. The idea is to feature the bassist in music, playing either a double bass or an electric bass – the heartbeat of music. Music students from COPA, UKZN, Durban Music School. Embury College and Thomas Moore are encouraged to attend. The evening concert will feature Philani Ngidi, Ildo Nandja, Trevor Donjeany, Ruben Thomas, Kevin Rengasmay, Dale Wardell, Logan Byrne, Llewelyn Chetty, Brayden Hore, Daniel Wilson, Daliso Ndlazi, Rick de Kock,Talent Mbatha and Bonga Zulu. These are popular bassists from groups such as Avade, Afro Divas, Beat Route, Habit To, Kevolution, Quark, 5th Season among others. Chloe Clark will perform with two double bass players accompanying her on a number - a bassist from Cape Town and Dalisu Ndlazi. There will be the collective bass number at the end of the show with as many bass players as possible. This time around, it will be led by Trevor Donjeany with one of his compositions.
