2013 Reader Favorite Bassists – #5: Joe Dart

Back in June, 2011, our Facebook friend Noah Sider shared a video with us that made me an instant fan of band known as Vulfpeck. There’s a ton to love about this band, as it is comprised of some monster musicians who know how to have fun and really know how to lay it down. But it was bassist Joe...

Vulfpeck Tour Vlog: Joe Dart & the Guys Get Funky

During Vulfpeck’s tour, they had the night off in Tulsa. But a night off doesn’t stop these guys from getting funky. Joined by Cory Wong on guitar, the band put together one epic jam. As usual, bassist Joe Dart delivers big time. Jack Stratton told me they were “going for a Bernard Edwards tone”. Oh yeah.

Vulfpeck: “Outro” Live at Rockwood Music Hall

One of my favorite Vulfpeck tunes is “Outro”, from the EP Vollmilch, released earlier this year. Here’s the band performing it as the closer of their set at Rockwood Music Hall in October. As usual, Joe Dart is laying it down, and the whole band is just cooking. So cool to see them in a live setting like this. They...

Vulfpeck: My First Car

Jack Stratton sent this new video featuring Vulfpeck performing the title track from My First Car. Bassist Joe Dart really lays it down on this one – as he does on pretty much every tune I’ve heard. Dart is playing a P-Bass Jr. with medium LaBella strings. Jack said they “slammed [the bass] through a TG 12413 Limiter plugin emulation”....

Vulfpeck: Wait for the Moment

Yes, I’m a huge Vulfpeck fan. It starts with bassist Joe Dart, who always seems to find the right bass line and then do something quite unexpected, but it just fits. But truth is, the whole band is just stellar. And fun. From their new release, My First Car, here’s the opening track “Wait for the Moment”, featuring guest vocalist...

Vulfpeck: Joe Dart’s Isolated Bass Track on “Beastly”

Jack Stratton sent me this video, which made my day. We’re all huge Joe Dart and Vulfpeck fans around here, and so it was a nice treat to hear Joe’s bass line to the tune “Beastly” in all its glory. If you want to hear the original, we have that too. And if you dig that, you’ll also want to...

Vulfpeck: Adrienne & Adrianne Happen to Bossa Nova

Ever since Vulfpeck released Vollmilch about a month or so ago, the tunes have been in constant rotation in my playlist. This video (along with the one for “Outro” we featured three weeks ago) are among my most favorite tracks from the album. Joe Dart, as usual, is head bobbing and laying down some sweet bass on this one, and...

Vulfpeck: Outro

They’re back. One of my favorite bands over the last year, Vulfpeck, has a fresh set of tunes out and a new EP they “snuck in last week”, according to Jack Stratton. Bassist Joe Dart is a monster, and Vulpeck has more than their fair share of monsters on every instrument. Check out Joe’s fills on this tune! Dang. The...
