WCAB Bach Festival: Bach in the Brewery with Josh Cohen
October 18, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Experience Bach in the Brewery at 22 Lakes Brewery with the incredible sounds of Josh Cohen and his 6 string Bass!
Josh plays Baroque music on this non-traditional instrument, blending modern technology with musicianship worthy of the Baroque era. Don’t miss this exciting concert by this accomplished musician.
Josh Cohen is a multi-award winning six-string electric bassist, composer, session musician, and music educator based out of Madison, Wisconsin. He travels frequently throughout the United States to perform and teach clinics/workshops including; Bass Boot Camp 2016, Gruv Gear’s Clinic Series at Steve’s Music Toronto, Bass Break Live 2017, and more. He has garnered a lot of attention for his solo electric bass compositions and arrangements, and his arrangement of Herbie Hancock’s “Chameleon” was ranked as the number one bass video of 2015 by No Treble magazine.
Josh’s solo six-string electric bass performances, which can be heard on his debut 2014 album Out of the Bassment, use extended techniques to create the sound of an entire band with only one instrument, and without the aid of loop pedals. When listeners hear Josh playing for the first time, they are often surprised to find out that everything they are hearing is being created by one person in real-time.
