Glenn Miller: Basso Profundo, Grammy winner, Not the Trombonist/Jazz Composer, Capable of shaking the ground with the power of his voice alone.
Growing up singing in choir, Glenn was relegated to support roles, unable to sing leads because his voice was simply too manly for the leads.
As he grew up and more people discovered the power of his voice, he quickly became an in demand Basso Profundo. His absolutely ridiculous range allowed him to sing notes most mere mortals can only dream of. In his 2015 Grammy winning recording of a Russian Eastern Orthodox Church standard, Do not reject me in my old age, Glenn sang the super low Contra G!
Glenn Miller is a true badass with a voice worthy of the title Basso Profundo. What I would give to have a voice like that…
P.S. We’re at Blissfest in Harbor Springs, Michigan today and tomorrow! Our first set starts at 8.

First show back after a little 4th of July breather, we kick off the rest of the month tonight at Schuba’s in Chicago. We love this city, and we’re happy to move up the chain of venues to this respectable establishment. Ladies bring ya fellas, it’s Thursday, we know you’re thirsty. Check our support for the night, introducing The Claudettes!
Suzy got blown off stage by a strong gust of wind in Crested Butte, CO and she landed on her bell. It really sucked, but it could have been much worse.We had a few days off back home so I got my horn fixed by Stafford Agee, trombonist for Rebirth Brass Band and an excellent human being. I can’t thank him enough for taking time out of his very busy schedule to help make Suzy whole again.
Step One: Hit it with a hammer.
Step 2: Roll out dents
Step 3: Magnetic dent removal
So much better. Stafford is the man. Now it’s time to get to Chicago.
Ladies and gents,
Tonight we return to Lamberts in Austin to round out the June leg of our 2016 Summer Tour! Doors are at 9:30, and 2 solid sets of music with yours truly kick off at 10pm.
Can’t wait to knock out another great show in Austin, then kick back for a few days in the good ol’ Dirty Dirty! See you next month on 7/7 in Chicago at Schuba’s!
Until then, sit back, relax, and enjoy a simpler time when stuff like this was mainstream music…….
Dave Anderson: Principal Bassist of the LPO, Composer, Teacher, Bad Mofo and a great human being.
What can’t this man do? Master of classical, jazz, rock and roll and everything in between. Composer, performer, teacher of the highest levels, he is known throughout the world of bass as a true badass. He has studied and played with everyone, and I mean everyone. Frank Proto, Jaco Pastorius, Bobby McFerrin, John Paul Jones, Hal Robinson, and too many others to count. I was very lucky to have him as my teacher and I am deeply grateful for all of the knowledge and skills he passed on to me. DERF!
Duets Performed by Gaelen McCormick and Ed Paulsen
P.S. Gig tonight at the Blue Light Live in Lubbock, TX. Show starts at 11 PM.
We found a reverb chamber at our hotel pool. After performing at the Donkey Creek Festival, eating rattlesnake, and drinking Bourbon we woke up early and played Wagner’s Lohengrin, Prelude to Act III low brass excerpt. Notice the kids… One little girl tried her best to go home with Jimmy.
What’s up y’all? The sun is shining and it’s looking like another beautiful day in Colorado, and I’ve got a stack of new records on my lap.
Yeah y’all, it’s been a good haul so far, there’s more too but I don’t have enough lap space! I’m excited about all of em too but especially for that ZZ Top record – it’s a live one from their concert in New
Orleans at The Warehouse!
Tonight we’re in gorgeous Gold Hill and performing at the Gold Hill Inn! Showtime is 9pm! It’s sure to be a hot and sweaty one! See y’all there!
Schmiggity’s – 10pm – 2 Sets – Come get down!
Ladies and gents,
