ABOUT

If you need a bass player please send a note to: michael dot mais dot bass at geemail dot com.

I've been playing bass for over 30 years in the Tri-State area. I've played in all types of bands - Original, Wedding / Corporate, Covers, R&B, Funk, Fusion, and the list goes on. I'm presently looking for a steady working paid situation, playing club dates, weddings, corporate, etc, but open to other paid situations as well (Tribute, etc).

I’m a solid bass player with many years of experience, fluent in many genres, pay great attention to details when learning songs, have great pro boutique gear, and I’m very responsible. I have multiple fx as well if needed in order to emulate the bass sound in a tune, even synth bass sounds. I program synths to emulate bass sounds triggered by my bass, keyboard or iPad. I can also sing lead and harmonies as well. I’ve have sung backgrounds extensively in every band I’ve been in.

I am also an Audio Engineer as well and fluent in all things Audio. I mix live sound on a daily basis and record for broadcast networks and have done production work for bands as well.

FYI all of the music I have posted are recordings of my playing at either rehearsals or live performances.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

Thanks for your consideration.
