Brian Tanti


I am the bass player for Hittin '88, an 80's tribute band, bellyecho, a Bedford based Britpop/indie band and Man Alive Band. I am also the bass player for Gratis, a Free Tribute band. I have been playing bass for more years than I care to remember from Prog Rock covers and originals, various cover bands and rock and pop. I have toured with Terry Slesser (Beckett and Back Street Crawler), Clive Edwards (UFO, Band X and others), Mark Taylor (Alarm, Simply Red, Journey, Lulu and others) and John Buckton (Freeway) playing Free and Back Street Crawler numbers in venues across London (Water Rats - Kings Cross and The Half Moon - Putney) , the Stables MK, and 2 up in the North East (The Forum - Darlington and Customs House - South Shields). I have also written and recorded bass lines for two original albums; Lucks Lane debut album 'A New Someone' and 'King For Day' by Beguiled. Have gigged in several countries around the world, mainly Australia, where I grew up, and UK, but had a great time gigging around the Falkland Islands also. I am not a paid member so I can't message people through here, but you can find me on other social media sites or brian.tanti at g m a i l dot com.
