Craig Privett - Bass Guitar


As a young boy growing up Craig could always pick out the Bass lines in all and any music that he would hear. Regardless of where the Music came from, whether it was Bach or the Beatles he would just naturally start humming the bass lines. The first time Craig put a Bass in his hands he realized that is where he belongs. He went on to study Bass with renowned Jazz artist Sonny Dallas at Suffolk Community College in the early 1980's. After leaving college Craig played in various groups throughout Long Island and the New York area. Being an accomplished musician and long time fan of the Dead and Phil Lesh, Craig has the capacity for reaching even the deepest depths of the undefined yet integral role of the bass in Grateful Dead music.
