Feeling a bit camera shy


Bret Crow is a Denton, Tx. based artist that is one of the more versatile performers to come from that particularly eclectic and creative scene. At the core a 5 string Bass player, he not only is able to use it and an effects / loop pedal to perform as a one-man band a'la "The Bret Crow Show". He is also a staple bassist for several local bands including Bone Doggie and the Hickory Street Hellraisers, Puddin' Taine and Slice Fury.
Bret's irreverent and comedic stylings include the use of effects, echos, beatboxing and loops created on the fly. Combining his excellent bass skills and unique singing voice with these accouterments allows him to craft a distinct sound. That sound meshes perfectly with his catalog of silly, funny and parody songs that mainly comprise his solo work,. This solo work (showcased in his debut album "The Bret Crow Show") runs the gamut from songs that are engaging, sing-along pieces like "i'm Afraid of the Boogeyman" and "Peanut Butter and Jelly Time" to the somewhat sad and hypnotic "You Don't Know Me". 
Bass is not Bret's only gig however, as he is an accomplished player of the guitar, keyboard, double bass, as well as kazoo and slide whistle when appropriate. His opportunities to bring all these to the fore are legion as Brett is one of the hardest working musicians around. He performs a weekly Pre Show to Plano's Open Stage Variety Show, Hosts and MC's a weekly Open Mic at Mable Peabody's in Denton and regularly jams with the plethora of bands that are glad to have him slapping and popping his bass licks as a part of their mix. 
As a one-man show or part of an ensemble Bret brings the comedy / rock / funk sound he is famous for, improv pop references and parodies are usually thrown in for the price of admission.
