My favorite local band The String Assassins last weekend. They were opening for my wife's band, In The Light of Led Zeppelin. A great time (and a lot of pre and post show jamming, even I got to play after-hours) was had by all. We all jammed at the smaller venue next door until almost 2:30 AM.

What is the instrument on the far right? Looks like some sort of acoustic bass guitar?

It's an upright electric bass. They are called EUB's by bass players. They are fretless and designed to sort of sound and feel like an upright. They need to be plugged in to an amp, of course, some have a full sized curved fingerboard and can even be bowed, and have electronics and pickups but in a much more compact package than an acoustic upright. There are numerous brands, variations, sizes, scale lengths (some are the same as an upright, around 42", some are the same as a bass guitar which is 34") etc. I have played several of them including that one, they are fun, I may get one myself if I could ever figure out which one to get. I know several bass players who play them for either part of a gig or all of it. Dennis here plays it most of the gig but plays a bass guitar for certrain songs.

Probably shoudn't be in the thread as it's not my "best" gig shot.

I now rarely take the dslr to gigs when I'm go to see the band and just use the crappy camera on my phone, but here is one from the last gig I was at, The Anynumbers at Night People in Manchester UK,

Looks like a rough joint with that barrier in front of the band! Tough shoot!

Funny I have yet to see one in play. That would be great for traveling with in comparison to a full-size bass. I do see some bass players with a mini-sized upright that is less than half the size but still looks like a regular upright only smaller. Honestly for me when bass is being played in a band it's hard to hear much difference, the only time I can tell is when there is a bass solo being performed.

Not to get too far off topic, my friend got one a couple of years ago. Hasn't had the chance to play it too much, but he really likes it. When the touring slows down, he plans on putting more time into it.

Mostly true in a busy mix. The one Dennis plays is a 34" scale I think, same as a bass guitar. There are others with the same scale length as a full or a 3/4 upright. The compact acoustic ones you describe are good for travel and since they have pickups and are amplified the smaller body doesn't really affect stage sound, like you say. The EUB's come in an unbelievable array of styles and configurations, some even in 5 string. Google EUB and you'll see.

I am surprised you haven't seen one with all the bands you shoot.

It's a Palatino... 40 3/4" Upright.

These I have seen many times, they do sound good in most band environments but not as good in a jazz trio or something where the bass is prominent to the sound.

I agree, hard to beat the acoustic upright sound in a trio set.
