Mark Bass Austin


Band to Join.


Pro-level bass guitarist looking to play for love or money.

Yes, I'll play for free in an original music project that plays or aspires to play at the better local venues. Yes, I'll play covers on 6th for $50. Yes, I'll play blues for $50 at a biker bar. And for sure I'll play that Lakeway Country Club event for $250! Not interested in projects that sit in rehearsal for months and years on end, waiting for things to gel or for songs to write themselves.

I work from home and mostly on my own schedule, so my availability is pretty wide-open. Limited touring may be possible but not looking to focus career on music. I'm easy to work with and can smile when things go wrong at the gig. I don't give a flip about your age if you don't give a flip about mine. You can count on me to dress appropriately for the gig, or at least put some thought into it, and to bring along the right gear for the gig.

The sound of the kick drum. The snare is impossible to miss, but you have to pay attention to the kick drum. It's where sh*t is at. What music am I listening to? Wulfpeck - Joe Dart is everything I'd want to see in a young player.
