Professional bassist with studio, international touring, and performing experience with diverse rock, jazz/fusion, blues, latin, and funk groups, along with experience playing musicals with orchestras and ensembles.
Bassist James Rosocha holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the Berklee College of Music in Boston. He's toured the US and Europe as a long-time member of the BD Lenz group. Together they've released seven albums under the New York jazz label "Apria Records" and can heard on a number of television shows such as MTV, VH1, USA, A&E, Nickelodeon, Travel Network, Food Network, Spike TV, Comedy Central and a long host of others. A student of New Jersey's late jazz legend/ guitarist Harry Leahey and Steve Morse Band/Dixie Dregs bassist Dave LaRue, James has been fortunate to share the stage with trumpet legend Randy Brecker, guitarist Hiram Bullock, drummer Joel Rosenblatt, saxophonist Jay Beckenstein, pianist Jeremy Wall of Spyro Gyro and Phish leader Trey Anastasio. He appears alongside Trey in the new Phish Companion book, which documents the band's history and music. James endorses Spector Basses, Eden Electronics and Hipshot Detuners.
