Nice!

Gosh, they are AMAZING live!! They were Amy Winehouse's backing band. Pretty everything o Daptone Records is incredible.

That is rad! Great eye ... agreeance on the claim that what Dap Tone does, they do well and all of it smokes. Their catalog is incredible ... Again, great eye!

Carvin should ship that dude a new vintage looking PB4 (with large logo on headstock) for the national TV exposure they are getting!

Great catch, videomagician - and thanks for the video follow up, Paula!

Is it just me, or does it look like the instrumentalist with the Carvin is also the happiest?

(OK, except for tambourine guy. I couldn't stop watching him!)

From the January 2014 print issue of Bass Player Magazine, page 27: "Gabriel "Bosco Mann" Roth has carved out a gritty niche for himself as producer and bassist behind Brooklyn's Dap-Kings; it's reflected in the restrained, funky lines he pulls from his pillowy 1972 Carvin SB60..."
