Sothern California bassist

Recommended Posts

Ok, this is a really long shot but I owe it myself to try. I was in Carlsbad briefly in the summer, north of San Diego. I was in a sushi bar with some relatives. We overlooked downstairs where, at a another regular medium sized restaurant garden, a killer band was set up in the garden - featuring drums, keys, a sax/wind synth player and a stunning bassist. I spent most of the meal, popping out with my son - checking out the band (as much as was possible without being rude to my relatives).

We had to leave before they had a break so I didn't get to speak to them. The bass player/ bandleader was a huge, African-American guy who also sang very sweet lead vocals. They played a set of funk and fusion including the staples like Chameleon. The bassplayer took extended solos on most songs and played a lot through a mutron or similar - his solos were expansive and groovy at the same time. This was just a small gig but obviously these were some very hot players.


Does anybody have any idea who it might have been?

If you look in the "click here for more photos" to the right underneath, there seems to be band photos but it looks like a smaller white guy is holding the bass. There are definitely 2 huge African-American guys in that picture, though, so maybe it's them?


Maybe it's someone else on here:




Here's a big fat list of San Diego bands:




Good luck!
