Barbara Bastrup


Accomplished front-line performer, have played in classic rock, hard rock, country and bluegrass cover and originals bands. Opened for Leon Russell and The Jefferson Starship and Coco Montoya among others at local concert hall venues. Strong solid bass player with a good ear. Vocal range can accommodate high harmonies, but mostly do not do leads. Prefer to concentrate on bass and harmony. Available for fill in gigs and bands with originals as well as cover bands and back up vocals. Prefer to work local festivals, club showcases, busy dance clubs and opening acts such as the Coach House, House of Blues, Hard Rock, Galaxy (Observatory). Money isn't an issue, for opening acts and showcases I realize there isn't any pay. A regular paid restaurant job or great roadhouse gig would be cool. At this point in time 1:00 AM gigs several nights a week are off the table, though. Favorite: Country, closely followed by Rock.
