Gerald Veasley’s musical odyssey has taken him to the top of the contemporary music world as a bassist, bandleader, composer, producer and educator. He has recorded and/or performed with many of the world’ stop performers in many genres of music such as; Chuck Loeb, Maysa, Kim Waters, Nick Colionne, Special EFX, Pieces of a Dream, McCoy Tyner, Gerald Levert, Teddy Pendergrass, Nnenna Freelon, Philip Bailey, the Dixie Hummingbirds, John Blake, Phil Perry, Will Downing and Pat Martino. His performance as a bassist has been top shelf, as his memorable work with the late, great Grover Washington Jr., Joe Zawinul, and the Jaco Pastorius Big Band attests.
**Pablo Batista Latin Jazz Ensemble**
Having performed with a diverse range of artists from Alicia Keys to Eddie Palmieri, percussionist Pablo Batista is a master percussionist. He is joined by Bass BootCamp (BBC) faculty member Chico Huff, one of the best bass players to come out of the vibrant Philadelphia music scene. BBC co-founder and Joe Zawinul / Grover Washington alum Gerald Veasley, and other faculty members will jam with Pablo in a finale to be remembered.
American recording artist, composer, and musician (bassist). Was also chorus singer, clarinet and hand bells player as well hip-hop performer.
**Michael Manring (solo)**
Hailed by many as the world’s leading solo bassist, Michael Manring has been pushing back the boundaries of what’s possible on the bass guitar for over three decades. While his technical skill and innovations always make an impression, it is his ability to communicate on a profound emotional level that most touches listeners. As editor Tom Darter wrote in Keyboard magazine after seeing one of Michael’s solo concerts, “Forget his astounding technique and musicality; forget his absolute command of his instruments; forget how seamlessly the musical ideas and the performance of them were wedded together…The enlightenment came most from feeling (seeing, hearing) the joy Michael felt to be playing…his brand of transcendental chops and musical understanding…was all in the service of the final outcome, the joy of making music.”
