We all know it, the bass never gets enough love. As the groove and foundation of the band, the bass’ humble but titular role can sometimes be overlooked. So, with such a stacked lineup of stellar bass players performing at “All About That Bass,” a benefit concert for Project Safe, it’s fair to say it will not only be a masterclass but a monument to the instrument itself. The concert will also serve to remember Carl Lindberg, a jazz bassist and member of the music community who died May 2015. The concert will feature UGA double bass professor Milton Masciadri and his standout students, Dan Horowitz with Klezmer Local 42, Laura Camacho of the Athens Tango Project, Andrea DeMarcus of Cicada Rhythm, and Michael C. Steele with the Randall Bramblett Band. The event will be emceed by Cracker’s bassist Bryan J. Howard.
