Joe Bass


Joe Bass is a 3 piece folk group based in Toronto and Waterloo. Starting with the initial goal of being a bluegrass band, the trio failed horribly. Instead the bass , guitar, and mandolin instrumentation might take you back to the quick picking band your mother's special friend Michael used to play in at family picnics. On their softer side, the perseverance of the three non-vocalists to warm your heart with three part harmonies could bring a tear to your future lover's eye. Somewhere in between they might remind you of that band you were pleasantly surprised with at that 19th century burlesque house.

Garrett Stratford - Guitar / Lead vocals
Sandy James - Bass / non-lead vocals
