Oteil Burbridge is a "musician's musician," a bass guitar idol, and a master of jam band-style funk, rock, blues, jazz, and everything in between.
Burbridge first emerged as a founding member of Aquarium Rescue Unit, a group that recorded their first album in the early '90s and hit the road on the H.O.R.D.E. tour with other like-minded bands. In 1997, he replaced bassist Allen Woody in the Allman Brothers Band. Burbridge has also contributed to recordings by Gregg Allman, Victor Wooten, Trey Anastasio and Jon Fishman of Phish, and T. Lavitz of the Dixie Dregs. He toured with his own band, Oteil & the Peacemakers, in the fall of 2000. He was featured in Bass Player magazine in August 1993 and again as the cover story in August 1997. Burbridge played on the 1999 Stranger's Hand album with Howard Levy, Jerry Goodman, and Steve Smith, and in 2000 he released his first solo CD, an instrumental effort entitled Love of a Lifetime. ~ Ann Wickstrom, Rovi
