Hey Byron, I'm coming to this post party a little late but I'm equally comfortable on either axe and I LOVE to sing. If you hear of anyone looking, feel free to send 'em my way!
I'm looking for an upright bassist for a unique rock act. If you know of anyone please have them contact me here or directly at David@Nashville.com.

If you're still looking, I think I might have the right person for you. Versatile player in multiple styles on both electric and upright. Excellent technique. 30+ years of high-quality studio and touring experience. Played on numerous chart-topping hits. Interesting and memorable voice with loads of character. However, he's not really a Country bassist and I don't think he's from around here. But he just played a huge party with Vince Gill and its supposed to be on TV, soon.
Goes by the name of Sting. Hope this helps. :-)
How's that comedy career working out? :)
What? I was being totally serious! :-) Actually, my comedy "career" is working out much like my music "career." Both have a LONG way to go.
Actually, I met Sting when he did a private show (no joke) in Phoenix in 1996. Fantastic player, but I'm looking for an unknown Nashville upright bassist for the project. Have a good one auditioning tomorrow at Diamond Sound Studios.
Wow! That must have been a peak experience! I had a similar encounter many years ago with Yo-Yo Ma. Still gives me shivers. Good luck tomorrow!
