He has played well over 600 shows in 2018 alone, both through the handful of cover bands he is a part of and through his country-wide tour with the Hermanos Vazques Circus, as well as having been consistently “gigging” since 2012.

Join Ruben Angel as he takes you on a lyrical, 4-string tour of the bass guitar. Learn about the fundamentals of bass, how to carry a rhythm, basic bass arrangements, and how to stand out from the back of the stage! Students are encouraged to bring their own bass guitar, although this course will provide enough information to enrich even those who have yet to purchase an instrument. Let’s get slappin’!
