Bruce Wallace

During his busy career, Bruce has played not only the role of consummate side man, but being the superb bassist that he is, he can also solo, and has led and managed both jazz and rock ‘n’ roll groups. Early on, he served as the sound engineer on several projects for a recording studio in Los Angeles, and also did some producing for “Fat Chance Recording.” He has played on many jingles and demo recordings for various artists, and more recently he co-produced and performed in a jazz CD entitled “Soiree”.

Bruce was born in Pittsburgh, studied trombone privately in high school, and eventually majored in trombone and minored in bass at Duquesne University School of Music. But soon his love of the bass and his overwhelming propensity for jazz won out. From then on he played upright bass, electric bass, and tuba professionally. Because of Bruce’s skill at reading, his rote knowledge of a vast number of tunes, his feel for all styles, and his improvisational prowess, he has been able to play for and accompany a wide variety of artists and orchestras
