Chico Huff

Born in Savannah, GA, I moved to Massachusetts at a very young age. My interest in playing music began when my father brought home an electric guitar and amp one night when I was around 11. I turned it up to ten, played a power chord, and I was converted. I played primarily guitar until the age of 15 or sixteen.

I began playing mostly with a guitarist friend of mine, Ralph Nelson and my brother Nick on drums. Ralph and I would switch off on bass for the makeshift power trio. Eventually the balance became more me on bass. I then got my first gig ever playing bass and that was it, I was a bassist. I never had formal schooling so it's all been playing by ear and trial and error. I've picked up enough sight reading skills to get by but I won't be getting called to play West Side Story any time soon....
