Over the past fifteen months, Freekbass has kept busy launching his weekly ‘Saturday Night Chit-Chat’ show and releasing a steady stream of new singles and content.

Taken from the pages of the church of Sly Stone, the new single features Nigel Hall of Lettuce on vocals and clavinet.
Freekbass, hailed by the legendary Bootsy Collins as “the new spiritual warrior for the funk,” has served up his new album All The Way This. All The Way That. on the exciting new Color Red imprint out now. He is taking the new album on tour kicking off with the opening performance at the Cincinnati Reds’ game on August 5th.
Freekbass, hailed by the legendary Bootsy Collins as “the new spiritual warrior for the funk,” is ready to serve up his new album All The Way This. All The Way That. on the exciting new Color Red imprint on May 31, 2019. The highly anticipated album embodies the past, present, and future of funk music from the creative minds of Freekbass and co-producers Itaal Shur and Color Red founder Eddie Roberts.
The Joe Marcinek Band comes to the Midwest for a 4 day run of shows March 16-19, 2016. Joe will be joined by an all-star line-up, including Ropeadope Recording Artist Freekbass and Steve Molitz of Particle and Phil Lesh & Friends. This run of shows will take the acclaimed line-up through Columbus OH, Evansville IN, Kalamazoo MI and Neenah WI.
“Concentrate”, the title of Freekbass’s newest album sums it well. With the influence of funk genre music that Freek experienced growing up in Cincinnati Ohio, along with his deep desire to play bass, Freekbass has without a question created an album that keeps bass and funk glued like never heard before.
