Rene Camacho Rene Camacho

Rene Camacho is an Acoustic, Electric Bassist and Vocalist originally from Tucson, Arizona, now living in Los Angeles. While trombone was his first instrument, he always had an affinity for the Bass and in his college years, Rene made the switch. Rene received a Bachelor’s Degree in Jazz Studies and Composition from The University of Arizona.

Since moving to Los Angeles in 1996, Rene has had the opportunity to explore many musical ventures, both in live performances and studio recordings. Rene began working with many Latin artists, shortly after moving to Los Angeles most notably, a five year stint with the Queen of Salsa, Celia Cruz and a brief time with the King of Mambo, Tito Puente.

After these successful endeavors, Rene began branching out to different genres such as Jazz, Soul, R&B, Country, as well as Rock. These career enhancing experiences enabled Rene to record and tour the world with a wide variety of artists from different musical backgrounds.

Artists that he has worked with include: Sergio Mendes, Ry Cooder, Michael Bublé, Oscar Castro Neves, Michael McDonald, Poncho Sanchez, Tipica ’73, Robben Ford, Angelique Kidjo, Linda Ronstadt, Draco Rosa, Jose Alberto “El Canario”, Raul Malo (The Mavericks), Rickie Lee Jones, Juan Gabriel, The Fifth Dimension, The Pointer Sisters, Ron Blake, Francisco Torres, Oscar Hernandez, Canadian Pianist Carol Welsman, Arnold McCuller, the Disney Channel and Guitarist Dean Brown.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
