Andy Voelkel


Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Keyboard.


I am a veteran bassist with an interest in groove oriented material (Funk, Reggae, Latin, African, New Orleans, Jazz, Rock with groove, etc) looking for like minded musicians for creative satisfaction. I have very good time and can read. Occasional gigs are nice but money is not important. Original and cover will both work, but quality matters.

Many and varied. Way back when I was a Berklee grad I played jazz, but gravitated towards more danceable stuff. I have a long term love affair with various electric African music, but there are so many grooves out there! The past couple years I've reconnected with Jazz and am enjoying that quite a bit.
