Afterwards, they returned ashore and headed over to the Rock Shop for the evening festivities, which they called “Pickin the Bones with Jones”.
They had a packed house of 60 key bass players from Auckland and the surrounding areas, who were personally invited to hang out and meet Darryl.
Darryl opened the evening by playing his bass and laying down some grooves, then moved into a Q & A with attendees which went for on for at least an hour. If you’ve ever seen a clinic with Darryl, then you know it is always a truly a fantastic interaction between the local bass community and a bass legend.
Once the Q & A ended, Music Link gave away t-shirts to random guests, then set up a signing table for Darryl in front of a display of Ampeg products. During the signing, attendees engaged with Darryl as well as a few of the crew from the Rolling Stones.
