Welcome to my website - Bassface67.com!
I am very excited about a number of musical efforts that have grown in depth and detail. I am absolutely thrilled to be part of Paul Brainard's fabulous Tiki Men. This quartet continues to grow and improve. We also have expanded to add a number of wonderful vocalists to the group. Check us out at our steady Tiki Tuesday at the Starday on Foster. I have performed and recorded recently with Jeremy Wilson, Sam Densmore, Jameson Wandling and Hank Cramer. Many of these recordings include arco and pizz work on my upright basses. OPB's Artbeat featured and recorded Jeremy which included our recent concert being captured. Jameson has also released a number of fun official videos to be found on my Videos page. Lots of new releases in 2022...
St. James's Gate has been working on new material and have played a number of great shows and festivals.. I am also working with Cary Novotny with his original country band, and with Seamus Egan and others on traditional Irish sessions. These artists all make me a better musician. I am very fortunate. Bahttsi recorded on Mt. Hood in 2021 and drummer Mark Burdon has been churning out rough mixes from these fabled sessions from 2021 and from the archive. Thank you Mark! Speaking of, I am also giving bass lessons out of my studio. Let me know if you are interested in exploring the joy of learning how to play the bass well and be a vital part of your groups.
As DJ What?Not, I have really been enjoying spinning my record collection at Mad Hanna, for Bad Album Night with DJ Titan Strohmburg III ESQ., as well as on my own for Saloon Sundays and Exotica Lounge sets for my own Happy Hour sets of What?Not favorites at The Alibi. As I write this, I realize my musical life is full, and interesting. As always, I only want to do more, so I feel optimistic about the coming year. If you want to support me in other ways consider picking up some merchandise. I may even look into getting some fun BassFace67 merch too.
If you can't make it in person, you can support my efforts by way of VENMO.
I really appreciate your support. My best to you and thanks for your support!
Just like Sammy, YES I CAN!
