I'm coming up on a year of study on the double bass and would like to explore gigging options with a small duo/trio/quartet. The band I play electric bass (and sometimes double bass) with has connections to get us into minor league gallery openings, restaurants and may be the occasional private party. The trick is what is a popular and aesthetically pleasing configuration for such a group? In addition to the bass, I have a pianist/clarinetist/aspiring flutist in one musician...and that's it. I'd like to add at least one more instrument (violin?)...if we can find someone...and am open to suggestions. And, I'd love to hear your suggestions on what music recommendations for "acoustic wallpaper" type gigs like these. What I've seen for double bass and clarinet seems more oriented toward a dissertation performance instead of pleasant ambient music.
