“I think the Nordstrand Big Single is the single best pickup ever produced and I have either Nordstrand pickups and/or Preamps in all of my basses.”
Bassist Tony Puleo, with an inherently rhythmic soul, incorporates spark and versatility into his bass playing. His adept fingering style, adaptability, and stage presence have garnered him an array of gigs, from the position of touring bass player for Carly Simon, to recording studio work for musical artists as well as advertising/commercials, and live session work for bands throughout New England and New York (including his home base of Boston). As a professional player, his experience includes genres such as rock, jazz, salsa, funk, and R&B. He has various and consistent recording projects, national and local band experience (he was a founding member of Haven, a band that toured with Living Colour), as well as various theater work such as Blue Man Group.
Tony has had extensive training with Bruce Gertz from Berklee College of Music. Beside bass, Tony’s studies have led him to the Chapman Stick and piano as well over the years.
