I find it difficult to find live photos where I’m not making a ridiculous face, so it might be time to surrender and re-institute BassFace Fridays.
ThrowbackThursday BTS – Soundcheck at the Troub with Katie Garfield five years back (the place looks a little different when the lights are on during the daytime).
ThrowbackThursday BTS – Soundcheck at the Troub with Katie Garfield five years back (the place looks a little different when the lights are on during the daytime). As it turned out, this ended up being our last gig together, but we had some great experiences as a band-fam. We all still keep in touch from time to time via social media. Everyone is still active in the music industry and doing some really cool stuff. Check ’em out.
Much thanks for the shout-out from new pop duo Taysti in the release of their latest track, “Fallin for You”.

I get asked quite often about my customized bass guitars. Several of basses have custom pickguards made by Alper Eskimez of @alperiouspickguard. His work is absolutely amazing. These pickguards are made out of wood and metal, so they actually improve tone and sustain a little bit. Every pickguard Alper makes is built-to-order and one-of-a-kind. In the photo on the left, you can see the detail of the wood grain in the pickguard on one of my @ernieballmusicman basses (this one is named “Elvis”).
The pop duo Taysti just recently released the lyric video for their first single that features Danny Knapp on bass, “Thank You For The Memories”. You can watch the full-length lyric video at https://youtu.be/IcDreQcjXog
For the recording session, Danny used his Kemper Profiler with an Aguilar Tone Hammer & Aguilar 8×10 profile along with his trusty Ernie Ball Musicman Stingray 5HH loaded with Jim Dunlop flatwound strings.
Plotting and planning with our producer “E” during the last @WereNoGentlemen recording session. For every minute we spend recording or playing live, we’ve spent hours in preparation, planning, and rehearsal.
I’ve been attending the NAMM show for years. It’s such a great opportunity to learn about all the new music tech being released as well as a chance to see so many great friends and peers. Sadly, the NAMM Winter Show won’t be be held in-person this year due to the pandemic. Since today would have been the first day of the event, I figured it would be an appropriate TBT to post a few photos from NAMMs of the past
I am so thankful to be a part of this project, working with so many talented people. I got the opportunity to provide the bass line for “Won’t Let You Hold Me Down”, the second single from pop duo @taystimusic available now on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and all other major platforms.
Although bass is my main instrument, I’ve been playing ukulele now for about 14 years. I’ve had the honor to learn and perform traditional Hawaiian and contemporary music with several great kumu (teachers), and I’ve been lucky to play ukulele in some recording studio sessions as well. In the coming weeks I will be posting some cover songs and ukulele how-to videos on my YouTube channel.
