About Me

Hello, I’m JDVtheBassist. I’m a semi-professional bassist with 19 years of experience under my belt. I’ve toured around the world, playing in 33 different countries. I personally enjoy playing covers because crowds love hearing something familiar and I love being able to deliver that. On the flip side, to satisfy my own creativity, I put out my own solo smooth jazz album alongside keyboardist, Darryl McEachin (a student here, and you can Google him). Feel free to send me a message if you want to know more about me. Thanks
