The Lo-Hio Solo Bass Showcase

Akron Empire is excited to welcome a new guest blogger, Daniel J Weihe! Daniel is a lover of all things local and all things art. He can most often be found wearing a rakish hat, in the company of great food and great friends.

The Lowdown on Lo-Hio
By Daniel J Weihe

The Lo-Hio Solo Bass Showcase is the brain child of Akron area native Jared Lees. Birthed from a deep love of all things low end and a desire to be surrounded by musicians who actually know what "fretless" means, Jared reached out to the bass community in the hopes of bringing together bassists and musiclovers from all over the country for a unique opportunity to play, listen, school and be schooled.

The inaugural Lo-Hio show will feature up-and-coming solo bassists with unique styles from across the United States: the showcase’s own host, Jared Lees, 18-string bassist Scott Fernandez; Brittany Frompovich, host of Virginia’s bass forum; singer/songwriter Darren Michaels; experienced touring artist Kent Beatty; and Brandon Covey, bassist for popular local band Yankee Bravo.

This free show is open to the whole family and will be held this Sunday, July 20 from 6 pm - 9 pm at EB’s Pub and Party Center in Canton. Everyone that comes will be entered for a chance to win free prizes from Aguilar, Gruv Gear, Guardian Pro Cables, Kalium Strings, PreSonus, Skjold Basses, TC Electronic, and more!

If you want to get a little taste of the great music you're going to experience, make sure to check out Lo-Hio's Facebook page for links to the artists’ websites.
