I am a funk/jazz bassist studying music and playing in the Purchase Symphony Orchestra at the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music. I started out on the upright bass when I was nine years old. I picked up the electric bass a few years later and started to experiment with grooving and slap. Got my first acoustic guitar when I was 15 and have been writing songs with vocals. Love to harmonize. My main thing is the upright though. I just love to get that vibrant, catchy sound. Down to play with anyone, seriously, any style, email me - joseph.arcuripurchase.edu
