Today, October 12, is "National Hug a Bassist Day." No, seriously, today is "National Hug a Bassist Day." Which Western Colorado bass player do you want to hug first?

These people need hugs. Bass players are the guys you see standing in the back of the band, keeping quiet, paying attention, and doing their job. These guys never get the chicks, and rarely get any praise. Ironically, the bassists are typically the most musically knowledgeable members of the band. These dudes (or dudettes) need your hugs.

Think about all the bass players you know here in the valley. Which one deserves your hug? Cast your vote. Don't see your choice? Write-ins are welcome and appreciated.
