BRIAN WHEATbass


Born: November 5, 1963
Birthplace: Sacramento, California
Instruments: Bass guitar and background vocals
Interests: Music, Fitness Exercise, Baseball & Kayaking

Brian grew up the youngest of 6 kids in the hood of South Sacramento, CA. While his older brothers cranked up hard rock records ala Humble Pie and Cream, Brian had a huge love for the Beatles and would steal their records from his brothers' collections. Brian started playing bass at 14 years old. His main musical influence is Paul McCartney as well as Jimmy Page, but he also has strong political views and states General George S. Patton as an influence.

Brian was very close to his Mom and is a natural born leader of business affairs. Brian is an avid baseball player and he played catcher's position up to his high school league. Brian decided to switch to playing music full time after the coaches said he couldn't make it to pro ball because of his size, despite his talents for the game. Brian still plays in mens hardball leagues as well as racquetball, biking and kayaking. Brian loves music production and owns a state of the art recording studio where TESLA records.

His other interests include Barbequing, Cooking, and traveling to Europe for the holidays with his wife Monique. Together they live in a 120 year old Victorian house. Brian says that it is his experience as a catcher and his love of General Patton that helps him manage the band.

    The creation, performance, significance, and even the definition of music vary according to culture and social context. Music ranges from strictly organized compositions (and their recreation in performance), through improvisational music to aleatoric forms. Music can be divided into genres and subgenres, although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, ..^:^

    I met you at the Warfield, fall 2011. I was there (the old woman) with David L. (Dean Markley) and after taping your promo, you told a story about Ronnie Montrose and what a great person he was and you were grateful that he had given you such a n amazing song. I’ll always remember that story. What I am trying to say is that we will all miss him , but I wanted to express my condolences to you.
    Peace,

    Kathy

    P.S. You guys rocked!
