Bassist Dan Horne appeared as the latest guest on ‘Let’s Hear It!,’ a webseries hosted by Gary Waldman in which musicians, instrument builders, music store owners, songwriters and more discuss and play instruments that they love. This was the bassist’s second appearance on the show.
During the episode, Horne discussed his new bass, a Guild Starfire that was modded by Alembic in the style of Phil Lesh’s famous Guild/Alembic bass. The two also discussed Horne’s new solo EP.
The new show kicked off over the summer, on Aug. 3. In addition to Blakesberg, past guests have included Eric Krasno, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s Scott Metzger, Scott Law, Leslie Mendelson, The Who touring violinist Katie Jacoby, Circles Around the Sun’s Mark Levy, Jeff Hill, Jon Graboff and more. Typically, guests tell stories about their instrument of choice before playing it live on the show.
Waldman was the longtime manager for Neal Casal, as well as the founder of the Neal Casal Music Foundation. He now serves as Circles Around the Sun’s manager and Citizen Cope’s tour manager.
