Geek Out With Wayland Gear – Dean Pizzazz’ Bass Gear [Video]

Wayland's show with Royal Bliss on Saturday night was fantastic! Hopefully you were one of the people at the show, rocking hard with us!

Before the show, I met up with the guys to film some cool bits with the band of their gear. I've always loved the rig rundowns and gear tours, and wanted to do them with the guys. Little did I know, they've always loved them, too, and wanted to do them!
