Band: Bassist/Musical Director For Air Supply / Starbreaker
From the cozy stages of the clubs to the roaring crowds of arenas,
Jonni Lightfoot is doing it all. For the past five years he has
been touring the world with rock legends "Air Supply."
Performing in sold out soccer stadiums in Mexico to record full
arenas in Asia, to just a few months ago performing to 175,000
people in Cuba. Jonni gives bass playing a new look where there
seems to be nothing new under the sun.
In 1996 Jonni released his debut C.D. "Copper Street Fair"
which received enthusiastic reviews from fans and critics including
"Most innovated new artist" from Bass Frontiers magazine.
"Copper Street Fair" offers a different look into Jonni's
song writing skills, which celebrated the piccolo bass as the
centerpiece of 9 moving compositions.
In 2000 and 2001 Jonni reached another milestone in his career
with his performances of the "National Anthem" (on bass)
to sell out crowds at the Utah Jazz and Utah Grizzles home games.
Jonni's latest release "Pendulum" (a DreamAttik Production
released in early 2002) reveals some of his greatest work to date.
From the use of his piccolo bass to stunning performances on the
fretless bass, one is sure to be mesmerized, taken in and energized
by these powerful 11 compositions.
For the past five years Jonni has been a clinician for today's
top bass amp company Gallien-Krueger (GK) and has played a role
in defining his personalized bass with Joe Zon of Zon Guitars.
So what's next for Jonni Lightfoot? He has started recording
for his third C.D. "Blu" (Scheduled to be released in
early 2006) Where he will once again showcase a different side
to his versatile musical capabilities, while still incorporating
his three strongest musical attributes: soul, diversity, and lots
