Steve Weiss Mallet Workshop


Hey VW peeps,

Got some nice footage from a recent gig, with some of my very favorite players. And there's more featuring vocalist Vaneese Thomas from Aretha Franklin's band, who sang with us. If folks are interested, I will post that when it is available.

Trying to figure out how to keep this going. Anyone with some ideas on how to bring the vibes to the people, please chime in! LOL All you cats in Europe..I'd love to take this band over there!

yep groovy band. the drummer grooves like hell but he doesn´t leave out any 16 th note.sometimes a little too much for my taste. i liked your solo and it was fun listening.

Great sound and playing! Are you using pickups? It sounds more like the natural vibes sound than pickups, but man, keeping up with all those amplifiers and the funky drummer acoustically, well, I'd be floating in sweat :-).

No pickups, Tom. My underneath mic rig..(there are some older posts you can search with the details). It does the job, and no crazy glue needed!
