Gerry Pineda

Upright and Electric Bass

Gerry likes playing the bass because there are only four strings and he only has to play one note at a time - he likes that a lot!

Gerry’s career as a freelance bassist and music educator has spanned decades. He has a private teaching studio and is an adjunct professor at University of the Pacific and California State University Sacramento. He has performed with: Rock On Live Band Karaoke, The Aluminum Marshmallow, The Tattooed Love Dogs, Seventy, MindX, Capitol Jazz Project, Ernie Watts, Tim Reis and Eddie Harris. He has also had the honor of receiving two critic’s choice Sammie awards for best Sacramento Bassist.

Gerry's favorite song to perform on our playlist is Tell Me Something Good, by Rufus and Chaka Kahn because it’s so damn funky!

Gerry’s favorite to gig to play is any gig he gets to play with deez cats!
