John is one of our valued basses, the rarest asset in Soundscape. In addition to helping set up performances and fielding enquiries, John helps in the hunt for music that is entertaining, appropriately difficult, and an extension of Soundscape's tradition of singing popular songs through the decades. John is a great supporter, a fine performer, an accurate bass, and a great booster of Soundscape. He and Dave together lead the bass section. To paraphrase Pogo: "We have met the bass section, and he is us!"
