The little bass with the big sound.
But then, since we’re uBass players, we already knew that.
So, apparently, Sam Price, bass player for Honey Island Swamp Band (whose music has been described a Bayou Americana) likes to whip out his uBass while on stage to freak out the crowd. He did this recently while playing “Josephine” at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
Apparently he’s been whipping it out for a few years now.
As he recently told Bass Player magazine:
“I love to mix in the Uke-Bass once in a while because it freaks folks out to hear such a big, round sound coming from such a little instrument.”
