Don’t miss the Miami Beach Pop Festival
this fall November 8-10 which now includes an all-star tribute to legend Bob Marley along with headline sets by Epi fans The Raconteurs with Brendan Benson
and Sheraton II PRO
devotee Leon Bridges along with rising Americana star Margo Price
and The Roots with Kirk Douglas
. Read our classic interview with Brendan
as well as our talk with Bridges' bassist and Jack Casady Signature
fan Joshua Crumbly. Crumbly and Bridges were in the Nashville area last week for a killer set at the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival.
"We were in Chicago at the Chicago Music Exchange," Crumbly told Epiphone. "At the time, Leon had two albums out that were very different from one another. I was carrying one bass on the gig and I was looking to get something new to give me specific sounds to tailor a special unique sound for a few of the songs, just to get closer to the record.
I came across the Jack Casady Bass in the music store and I kind of fell in love with it. We did a show in Austin in the middle of my first tour with Leon about 6 months ago. Codey from the Epiphone office in Austin graciously gave me a Jack Casady and I used it the very next day. For the rest of the tour it’s been a mainstay. Everyone loved it."
