Looking to rent bass for IBMA

Post by jhko22 » Wed Sep 05, 2018 6:16 pm

Hello Group:
My 15-year old son Andrew is a bass player with the youth band Crying Uncle. (Link to a recent performance: https://youtu.be/IhE5iFcLWUM)
He has been invited to IBMA World of Bluegrass in Raleigh, NC the last couple of years to play in Kids on Bluegrass (we live in the SF Bay Area). His band is getting more popular, and this year they've been invited to play on the Youth Stage at IBMA. I'm looking for a good 3/4 size upright acoustic bass to rent for IBMA (Sept. 24th-29th), since it is really difficult to ship his bass out. Andrew is very careful with instruments, and very responsible. We're members of the California Bluegrass Association, and IBMA, and you can find Andrew's facebook profile here:
https://www.facebook.com/Andrew-Osborn- ... 331187397/ and mine here:

If you have a bass to rent for IBMA, please contact me. Or if you can think of any leads on where to rent a good bass in the Raleigh area, please let me know.
Thanks very much in advance,
Joe Osborn (joeo@omwcorp.com)

After much thought and research, decided to buy a Chadwick folding bass for my son, so no longer need a loaner. Thanks!
