    My name is Doug Berns, and I'm a pro bassist from Brooklyn, NYC. I love bass and how it reflects the players personality: you have to be a sensitive, conscientious and aware person who is willing to subdue your ego for the betterment of the groove and the sake of the band. I love all kinds of music passionately, but hard rock/heavy metal is my "home bass".

    I played in the afro-beat bands Antibalas and EMEFE for many years, before starting my own metal/rock project Doug Berns Band. I love playing a diversity of gigs, singing while I play, and enjoying the musical lifeblood that makes NYC great.
