Derek Frank has spent 24 years in Los Angeles as a professional bassist. In the past few years he has landed some big gigs that required him to wear many hats as a bass player as well as retooling his rigs for all the different applications. We get to hear about playing in Gwen Stefani's current Vegas production and we also get to hear a few samples of the bass lines he enjoyed playing the most on his last few tours. It rocked so incredibly hard that our little podcast recording device started distorting. Derek can also be found in the house band for one of L.A's most acclaimed monthly musician jams "Soundcheck Live". If you guys travel through Los Angeles, make sure you check him out there. Spending an hour with a guy like Derek, who succesfully has many exciting irons in the musical fire in the city with the world's most competitive music scene, is the kind of thing that only happens here on The Lowdown Society Podcast. Today's episode is brought to you by the DSM Noisemaker OmniCab Sim Tweakable Cabinet Simulator.
