Bruce Lammers

Bass

My name is Bruce Lammers, and I grew up in Minnesota. I took bass lessons from Jimmy Johnson (Flim and the BB’s, Steve Gadd, and currently with James Taylor) after hearing him play bass at a music camp when I was a kid. After playing with various high school bands, I went on the road in the Midwest with the Karmann Goldwyn Band in the 1980’s. After moving to Wisconsin, I played with Kentucky Blend, Blindside, Andy Zynda & the Spankin’ Monkees, and Johnny and the Motones, with whom I’ve recorded. I’ve also continued to work with the Holdout band in Minnesota, as well as doing some big band and smaller jazz gigs over there. My major bass influence is Jimmy Johnson, but also include Jaco Pastorius, Stanley Clarke, Dave Hope, John Cowan, and Norbert Putnam. As my bandmate Bernie says, “It’s all about drivin’ the bus!”
