Max Penichet III: Electric Bass / Upright Bass
I have always been interested in playing music, even as a child. My brother Nick and I grew up watching our father and mother play in country and rock acts around the Midwest, and always dreamed of being on stage as well. A couple of my most memorable accomplishments alongside playing music with my friends and family include opening for acts such as Alabama, Travis Tritt, Jo Dee Messina, and Los Lobos, as well as earning my two Bachelor’s degrees in Music Education, and Jazz Studies: Performance. I have a great appreciation for many different styles of music, and have influences from every genre. To list a few in no particular order; Dave Matthew’s Band, Jaco Pastorius, Victor Wooten, Snarky Puppy, Animals as Leaders, etc. My musical bucket list includes pushing myself to become the best that I could ever be at my craft. I would also like to someday obtain master and doctorate degrees.
