Doug Johns is a beast of a bass player. In fact, it’s hard not to mention his name and have the words “funk master” and “groove beast” follow suit. He is a master musician who composes some of the richest bass lines that you will ever hear. His albums have all become bass classics. From his self-titled debut to Pocket Full Nasty, Stank, BLOMP! and Vodka In The Woodpile. A true bass virtuoso, who also happens to be a race car chassis designer and fabricator for World Championship drag cars, NASCAR and beyond.
The bassist has performed alongside artists like Victor Wooten, Chuck Rainey, Buddy Miles, and the LA Mass Choir. His passion for the bass can also be experienced in his world-renowned bass clinics and an instructional video series, Opening the Slap Style Bass Vocabulary.
