Washtub Jerry

            The farther you live from what some people consider civilization,
            the more self reliant and innovative you have to be.  You have to
            admire a guy who enters a field and actually creates his own genre
            by making  a musical instrument with which to conquer a niche that
            any other mortal is afraid to even challenge.  That is exactly what
            Washtub Jerry has done.  He is the only “tub-bass” player in the
            field of cowboy entertainment today.   Not only that, he may very
            well be the hardest working man in the business.  Go to any show
            where Washtub is performing and you’ll find performers lined up to
            get him to play backup bass for them.  I have yet to see him turn
            one of them down.  In addition, he understands more about music
            theory than any music teacher I know and can illustrate it to you on
            his unique instrument with the skill of a philharmonic surgeon.  And,
            to top it off,  Wash was named "1999 Instrumentalist of the Year"
            by theWestern Music Association.
