You know that moment when you get a chance to play not one but two shows with an artist you grew up listening to? Yeah, I’m living that this weekend. God is great and I take none of these blessings for granted. Big ups to the MD, keyboardist, and my sistah Noriko Olling for entrusting me with the bass duties. My girl, Helen De La Rosa, will be on drums and the dangerous background singers are Abduel Hall, Cory Walker, and Krystal Helene. I’m looking forward to a great weekend of music. Come on out. You have this Friday, Saturday, or come to both shows. 😀

Friday, March 16th and Saturday, March 17th

Looking forward to a great weekend of great music. I get the honor of playing with my brothers, Charles Young II, Eric Barefield, Darren Gholston, Marcus Jenkins, and many others at the GospelFest at CSUB’s Icardo Room this Friday, 2/9/18 and Saturday, 2/10/18 I am playing with Karen Briggs at Spaghettini’s with Darrell Lavigne (keys, MD), Nick Smith (keys), and Marvin Smitty Smith (Drums).

THIS BASS is SOOOO DOPE!! This is Kiesel’s new Osiris bass and this particular one has the radiused single coils and sounds just like a 70’s Jazz Bass. No lie. It is very similar to the new Zeus bass but it is a double cut vs the single cut on the Zeus. I’ll be playing one of these at the IK Multimedia booth #17206 with Eric Parker at 4pm on Saturday. Come check it out. You won’t be disappointed. #KieselCarvinArtist

Kandace Springs kicked off the Saturday night show Jazz + Blues = Soul, including her take on "The World is a Ghetto" originally by the band War.

I can’t believe this was over 5 years ago. Wow. Time flies. Anyway, here I am with my Hit Like A Girl crew (Benita Lewis on drums and founder of the band, Noriko Wright on keys and MD, Kat Dyson on guitar, and Jeanette Harris on sax) at the 2012 NAMM Bass Bash at JT Schmidt’s doing Noriko Wright’s arrangement of David Sanborn’s Maputo. This was soooo much fun and we all need to get together again SOON!!
