The multi-talented bass player to perform solo piece at Luther Burbank Center charity event on April 20.

San Francisco Bay Area bass wizard Michael Manring has offered to perform a solo composition at Guitar Player's benefit concert for musicians affected by the NorCal fires.

Entitled PLAY IT FORWARD, the charity event also includes Andy Summers, Jennifer Batten, Mimi Fox, Andy Timmons, Tracii Guns, and other local and international musicians.

The big show kicks off on Friday, April 20, 2018 at the Luther Burbank Center in Santa Rosa, California.


Our thanks to Chris Jisi of Bass Player magazine, Joe Zon of Zon Guitars, and, of course, Manring himself for supporting the Sonoma County music community.
