My name is Shawn Supra. I started playing upright bass 15 years ago in Houston Texas. I’ve had the privilege of touring with Wayne Hancock, Kim Lenz, Rosie Flores and Wanda Jackson just to name a few. Last year I moved to Nashville and hooked up with Bob Wootton and The Tennessee Three. That has since ended, so if anyone know of a gig let me know!!
The site looks great. It is so cool that, because of sites like this, slap bass isn’t the bastard child of bass playing. Keep it up!
Yeah it is a bit of a bummer about the Tennessee Three, but it was time for me to move on. That’s life I suppose. I’ve been playing electric bass around town in a Stax era soul band and doing a bit of upright with a band called Jakehead.
Yeah, I guess you could say “lucky”. I do have to say, though, that playing with Wayne gives you stamina in more ways than one. I once played a 5 1/2 show with him. No breaks. No shit. Man, that was brutal.
Congratulation, on this wonderful effort !
I first saw Wayne H. when I went to Austin a few years ago, then I met Erick Hokkanen, his fiddle player, nice guy too.
I think W.H never came back in France, and that’s a pity..Anyway it must be a good experience playin’ in his band.
