Veteran LA bass player Derek Frank takes a slight detour from his regular gigs as touring bassist with both Gwen Stefani and Shania Twain, and presents his instrumental quintet. Described as “Seventies-Inspired Instrumental Groove Music With Fewer Bass Solos Than You Would Expect”, Derek and his band blend funk, blues, soul, jazz, southern rock, and seventies soundtrack music into a sound all their own. For the current incarnation of his live band, Derek has assembled a “supergroup” of his favorite musicians, which includes guitarist Joshua Ray Gooch (Derek’s longtime bandmate with Shania Twain), keyboardist Carey Frank (Social Distortion, Tedeschi Trucks Band), drummer Randy Cooke (Smashmouth, Colbie Caillat, Ringo Starr, Five for Fighting), and percussionist Demian Arriaga (Miley Cyrus, The Jonas Brothers).
