    I am looking for a double bass ensemble of 8-10 people who perform live. They are - to the best of my knowledge - European, and their performance contains show elements as well. Do you have an idea who they could be? My boss saw a picture of this band on the web, but failed to bookmark the page and cannot retrieve the info. Thanks much for your kind help!

    There are only four of these guys, although they sound like eight (or one) depending on how you perceive it, and fit the rest of your despcription: http://www.thebassgang.org/

    i think i have a cd somewhere called "the London Doublebass Sound". bass choir from (duh) London, and they do a variety of styles, including a Spice Girls tune. it's been a few years since i've looked at the thing, but i recall there being at least 8 or 9 bassists, maybe more...

  5. You might be looking for Bassiona Amorosa Live - 4 extremely talented DB players - Roman Patkoló (Slovakia), I-Shan Kao (Taiwan), Ruslan Lutsyk (Ukraine) and Gisèle Blondeau (Canada). Great stuff!

    Thanks a lot for your quick help! I guess the ensemble we have been looking for is 'L'Orchestre de Contrebasses'. But thanks for the other suggestions as well.
