Martin Fraschetti - Bass / Back Up Vocals
45 years ago my musical journey began. I made my way as a classically trained piano player playing lone gigs during college at local city pubs for dinner. At the same time I was exploring the world of blues piano along with bass guitar. What I could do taking my piano theory and putting into bass. I spent time with my buddy bass legend Gary Shea ( New England , Alcatraz ) as he and I would exchange bass and keyboard theory in my living room. I also owe kudos to my bass guru Chuck Bartels ( Bettye LaVette ) for the years spent sharpening my chops. My bass model has always been James Jamerson and Standing in shadows of Motown. Rock and Roll has been my passion. However I owe my bass Improv to the summers spent with Detroits own Scott Grinnell and the Detroit Metro Jazz Workshop meshing those jazz licks into punchy rocking bass lines. I saved the Jazz improv for the stage at Detroits Cliff Bells. Aside from that I have been with Relic since its inception several years ago giggin all over the Detroit metro arena. Relic ..... A great band with a true brotherhood
A special thanks to The Detroit School of Rock and the Music Foundation for there support over the years .
