Craig Sandberg, Double-Bass

Craig Sandberg, double-bass, has been playing music longer than he can remember. Classical piano lessons at the age of 4, violin at 6, and singing in choir and plays since he was old enough to understand the concept. It wasn’t until 19 that he started playing the upright bass, but the moment he picked it up, he knew he’d finally found the instrument he could really love. He attended the University of Minnesota Morris from 2006-2011, earning his BA in Music Composition and Theatre. He moved to Asheville, NC five years ago, and since then has played regularly with many local acts such as Stephanies Id, The Resonant Rogues, and Hank West and the Smokin’ Hots. He is currently a member of Drayton and the Dreamboats as well as the Firecracker Jazz Band.
