Matt Schaeffer - Bassist / Acoustic Guitarist / Songwriter / Bio

I am bass player and acoustic guitarist out of Norridgewock, Maine. I have been playing bass and acoustic for over 25 years. Some of my major influences are Jaco Pastorious, RUSH (Geddy Lee..duh), Led Zeppelin, Allman Brothers Band (and Gov't Mule / Warren Haynes Band), Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke, Think Lizzy, Eric Clapton, Michael Hedges and Ted Nugent and many more great musicians.

I also play bass for RC Budaka, the female fronted band LadyWood and Classic Rock band the Song Pirates on a limited basis. You can also catch me as a frequent musician at "The Jam" on Sundays from 2-6pm at the VFW in Madison, ME, 5-9pm at The Kennebec Wharf in Hallowell, ME. Sometimes you can also catch me at Bloomfield's Tavern and South Side Tavern both located in Skowhegan, ME.

Additionally, I have played with other bands such as Chaos in Order (Portland, ME), Secondhand Smoke (Kistap County, WA), Bastard Blues Band (Silverdale, WA), Pride (Skowhegan, ME) and most recently with Meryia N' The Guys (Waterville, ME).

Feel free to contact me if you need a bass player fill-in for a show in the Northeast.
