Art Esposito


Band to Join.


I'm a university educated Jazz and
Classical bassist with the soul of a rocker. I'm full-time employed outside of the music biz, so I'm not looking to tour or anything, but am totally down with gettin' down on interesting projects. Especially interested if you want to for a Who tribute HMU on FB or Insta-- the name is the same.
