My name is Chico Huff. I've been playing electric bass professionally for about 40 years. I am primarily self taught, learning from all the wonderful musicians I've had the pleasure of making music with over the years. I did my first paying gig when I was about 14 years old, playing standards on Martha's Vineyard in a bar/restaurant in Katama. What better way to learn fast than to play with older players who neither told me what tune or what key we were going to play, just counted it in and had at it. I guess they had faith in me that I would figure it out!
Over the years I've had the pleasure of performing and/or recording with these fine folks:
James Taylor, Kate Taylor, Alex Taylor, Carly Simon, Jeff Golub, Richard Elliott, Jef Lee Johnson, Kit Walker, Solas, Seamus Egan, Karan Casey, Liz Carroll, Chuck Leob, Terrance Blanchard, John Belushi, Dr. John, John Swana, Cathy Ryan, John Hall, Jefferson Airplane, Francois Corneloup, Susan Werner, Antje Duvecot, Lizanne Knott, and many more.
I've had the chance to travel the USA and Europe extensively through the gift of music as well as Japan and Morocco.
Take care and thanks for stopping by!
