Current Shane and Masqued News
Shane will be bass teching the annual ProgPower USA festival in Atlanta (Sept. 5th – 8th) and repping DNA with his rig as part of the main backline.
Masqued is picking up steam as every review has been stellar. The band is headed to their first European festival FEMME Fest in October with a tour scheduled around the fest… Belgium, Germany, Northern France, and Athens.
20th Century Media has picked up the entire Z-lot-Z anthology and is re-mastering for a release with a bonus track. Very possibly followed by an album. There will be reunion shows booked around the time of the release TBA.
Masqued is currently planning European shows, writing, and in preproduction for their highly anticipated 2nd album.
“This rig is absolutely amazing!!!! I never thought I would be able to get the tone I wanted again without my Sansamp, but that thing is just a stompbox now!!!!! I’ve played my first gig with the DNA-1350 and pair of DNS410 cabs, and have several shows coming up, so now that I’ve had time to tweak it to my tastes, there is no going back!!!! It does everything! The sound and tone is HUGE, and the sustain is incredible. With the built-in tweeter control (on the front of the cabs), you can go from Steve Harris to Geezer tones in a split second not to mention the quality of the compressor. Simply the best rig I’ve had the pleasure of playing through and I’m truly honored to be a part of the DNA team!!!!!”
