David Galea

David has been playing Bass for at least fifteen years and professionally for 12 he has played in various situations ranging from Blues, jazz,Pop funk and anything else that grooves. At the moment he is working hard writting an arranging for the “BassBoy band”. The “BassBoy Band” could be described as a combination of jazz, funk and fusion. David had been toying with the idea of this band for a few years. He has played with each member of the band in different settings but this is the first project were they have all come together, the result of this collaboration has been the release their first album entitled (funny enough) “Bass Boy” which was official released on the 25th of August to a packed crowd at Jazzworx. The “BassBoy Band” has been set up as a vehicle for original jazz and funk music in which each player has the freedom to express themselves musically, while still working towards the overall sound of the band. By combining interesting compositions and arrangements with improvisation, the “BassBoy Band” is able to develop a contemporary sound that has been carved out of a jazz sensibility. The “BassBoy” Album was recorded over the weekend of the 9th and 10th of February 2008 at Alchemix studios. The album has received some very positive comments even in the short time since its release. It is know available from CD baby and through itunes.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
