OK folks… today’s the day. Video entries for our Have Bass Will Travel contest need to be in by midnight tonight (8/20) to be in the running for more than $900 in valuable prizes.
Before we close entries, however, Bluegrass Today would like to salute our sponsors for this contest: AcuTab Publications, D’Addario, Colorado Case and The Bass Stummit. They have each made generous donations that have enabled us to make this both fun for everyone, and ultimately beneficial for the finalists and grand prize winner.
Here are a few more videos that have come in since our last update on Thursday. David Morris combined wry humor with some pixie dust for his bass travel dilemmas. Be on the lookout for his brilliant bumpersticker.

Will included this comment with his video:
“Had a great time shooting this video with my brother. I don’t think that we have laughed this hard in forever. For some reason we got a lot of strange looks too. I’m happy something fun like this came along for Bass players ’cause normally we don’t get to do anything like this. Thanks for watching.”
This next one comes from Dan Booth, native Alaskan, now living in the California Bay area and performing with The Kathy Kallick Band (highlighted yesterday on Bluegrass Today). Here he is with his trusty bass on the Alaska Highway in British Columbia. That poor bass!
Last but not least, the singing Bankester Family collaborated on this entry, featuring eldest daughter Melissa and her husband Kyle Tripplet, who banjos for the band.
Thanks to everyone who has participated in Have Bass Will Travel. We’ll post any other entries that pop up later today, and will labor over the weekend to choose six finalists.
