Art Obin


Vocalist, Other Percussion.


Blues bass player retired from the rat race. Years of experience in blues / cover bands with some of my own originals mixed in. Free to work nights and committed to finding a solid blues band in need of bass and vocal. A confidant lead guitarist with a strong vocal would be great, but not a deal breaker. I'd love to do originals and jump right in to learning your catalog. A blues power trio, or a full rhythm section. Free to jam just about anytime I'm not playing. I've been working with a classic rock trio for the past two years. The Lost Artifacts (acoustic) It's been great, but I'm missing my first love, a good solid Chicago shuffle. Kim Simmons, Peter Green, are you out there? I guess I got the ''Want Ad Blues''. (John Lee Hooker)
