Saskatoon bass virtuoso Felipe Gomez from The Bass Invaders embarked on his second bike and bass bike tour July 1, 2014 to raise money for United Way Saskatoon & Area. With only his bicycle, his bass and a lot of determination, Felipe will be cycling more than 7000 kilometers from Saskatoon to St. John’s NL and playing shows and facilitating “bass ninja” workshops. He is originally from Chile and holds a Bachelor of Education degree. He has taught at Alerces Spanish Preschool & Kindergarten for the past 3 years. “I’ve been lucky to travel around the world and see how education can make a difference on a kid’s life, especially during their early years. This is why I decided to raise awareness and funds for United Way Saskatoon & Area.” Felipe is no stranger to such adventurous and grueling trips - last summer he cycled 3000 km from Tofino BC to Saskatoon on a similar tour, raising money and awareness for Autism Speaks Canada. Pratt Bass is developing an Explorer bass for Felipe’s attempt to travel around the world on a bike.
