ABOUT

Very experienced bass guitarist, can also provide lead and/or back-up vocals. Other instruments I play include acoustic guitar, ukulele, sax (soprano, alto, tenor and baritone).

I have played bass and sax in rock and blues bands, & a bit of country & jazz, since the '70's. Lots of gigging experience, have performed at a lot of the local festivals, including Bite of Seattle, Folklife, Tacoma Freedom Fest, Des Moines Summer Concerts, Poverty Bay Blues & Brews, Sunbanks R&B, Mount Baker R&B, Pike Place Market concerts, concerts at the wheel on the Seattle waterfront, etc. I've played clubs all over the area, including Highway 99 Blues, Dawson's, Red Wind Casino, Little Creek, Tulalip, Muckleshoot, , Conway Muse, the Upstage, the New Orleans, Spar, and tons of dive bars.

I'm easy-going, no drama, can learn lots of songs quickly. I am open to most styles and eras of music but really love Motown, R&B, classic rock, blues and Americana. Always interested to do something new though! Need a sub or have an interesting project? Feel free to email me gbassman777(at)GMA1L(dot)com.
