    They certainly do. Bob Gollihur probably has some listed on his site.

    I don't know about chicago area but there's L'orchestra De Contrabasse from France. They are quite a fantastic bunch, and I saw them when they came down here. You might want to check them out- they have a CD or 2 out I think

    Check with Greg Sarchet at Bass Club Chicago - there's a link to the organization near the top of my Double Bass Links Page - http://www.urbbob.com/basslink.html

    If anyone knows, he will.
