Latest Interview
Jonny Ray Bartel is a bassist's bassist. In fact, one of the best our genre of music has seen over the years. He's currently on the road with the Knitters (joining them at age 17, back in 1983).

Staying away from the normal 'slap out the whole song' school... he prefers to hold down the bottom, driving the drums and guitar, keeping everything together, only adding the slap when he feels it can push the song even more. High-energy live performances, great tone, and tasteful playing has kept him a big influence for many a Blues/Rockabilly/Roots bass player.
