I was wondering about this as well, since I'd be interested in either
coming down with a band and/or collaborating/improvising with other
participants. I'm just not a solo performer. My band has been planning a
trip to the bay area for a while, though we do not as yet have specific
dates booked, it'd be great if we could do this and the loop fest on the
same trip. Oh yeah, the guitarist, and I do looping, and the drummer does
his best to throw us all for a loop...
