ABOUT

My name is Nick and I'm a bassaholic. *everyone says "Hi Nick."*

I am currently an NYU grad student looking for some extra performance opportunities.

I am studying music technology and I know a lot about recording.

My standard rate for a 3-hour gig, unless other arrangements have been worked out (ask me), is $250. I am willing to negotiate this depending on the gig.

I am most comfortable in all rock/prog/metal settings, with jazz being a very close second. I have perfect pitch and am a fast learner, which I hope both could come in handy for you. I am also experienced in playing double bass and have played that for 10 years.

If you would like to learn more and/or book me for performance(s), e-mail me at bassmeister17.
