Band to Join.

ABOUT

Available in April, 2020. Accomplished front-line performer, have played in classic rock, hard rock, country and bluegrass cover and originals bands. I have opened for Leon Russell, The Jefferson Starship, Coco Montoya, Henry Kapono, Nikka Costa and others at local concert hall venues. Strong solid basics bass player with a good ear. Vocal range can accommodate high harmonies, but mostly do not do more than one lead (or none) as I prefer to concentrate on bass and harmony. Like to work local festivals, busy dance clubs and opening acts such as the Coach House, Hard Rock, Galaxy (Observatory). I believe in quality over quantity and am willing to put in some serious rehearsal hours prior to playing out. Please feel free to friend at Barbara Bastrup on so I can keep in touch with and support other musicians in So Cal. I am not looking for a weekly bar gig. Once or twice a month is great. I enjoy one rehearsal a week (unless getting ready for a stage show, 2 is good) and show or festival venues. I'm kinda beyond the age wanting to load out weekly at 1:30 AM then going home and eating everything in the refrigerator. I love to play most classic rock, new and old country especially, and any music with passion.
