Ernest Barteldes

Born in Muskegon, Michigan, Ernest Barteldes started out playing in rock bands in Fortaleza, Brazil. Though his first instrument was the clarinet, he gravitated to guitar and percussion but eventually settled on the electric bass.

Over the years he played various genres, and after relocating to New York he started performing with a Beatles tribute band. After that project came to an end, he experimented with a blues duo (playing guitar) and then retreated from the music scene for several years except for a weekly gig at The Church of Our Lady of Pompeii, where he still performs every Sunday.
