I‘ve been a freelance bass player in Melbourne for over 25 years now. You can read my full biography here – Jeremy LaBrooy Bassist Biography. I have found myself in virtually all types of music performance environments from concert halls, arenas and cathedrals to dance clubs and pubs, jazz clubs, TV studios and majestic theatre orchestra pits. I have also performed at countless hotel ballrooms, event reception centres, wineries, community halls and outdoor concert events.
