Jack Kammien brings to base guitar what gun powder does to lead. Add the 32 years of experience, the love of music and a live audience and he’ll take the house down.
Jack’s career in music started at age 10. The young trombone player at the time was well on his way to being a lifetime musician. After playing trombone, Jack set out to conquer more. Young Jack then began base guitar which led him down the road to the instrument he plays today.
His Soft spoken manner parallels his keen ability to apply the soft base resonance to any slow country tune. However, he can also immediately transpose and transform through his unique talents and open the parameters of base guitar by tearing the base up with riffs of fusion and popping jazz. Jack has played country, blues, jazz, rock, surf, Christian and progressive genres.
Jack’s style of base guitar can change as fast and easy as a record on a Juke box. Like anxiously awaiting from the depths what species of fish you are ready to net, you never know what type of base riff Jack is capable of coming up with next. His style comes from his love for music through influences such as- Floyd Pepper, Pig Pen and Danny Partridge. Humble and with a sense of humor, Jack shared his talents by playing with acts such as Tanya Tucker, Tommy Roe and Peter Noone. Jack has spent many years on the local seen as well.
Playing base guitar is Jack’s passion and most of the time you’ll see Jack and his base. However, it’s not always with him. The two are most certainly sure to part while he’s sitting in the boat in mirror-like water on a quiet evening waiting for the fish to bite. But, if Jack is not playing music or fishing, you may catch him enjoying a cold beer at the campsite. If not, he may be on his bike already on the way there.
