Peter de Reyna - Electric and Upright Bass
Pete is a lifelong devotee to the craft of musicianship. With a love for the diverse and beautiful, he has spent every moment mastering the many various styles of music that have crossed his path. As an upright bassist, Pete specializes in all idioms of the Jazz language and particularly Manouche/Gypsy Jazz. With a bachelor's degree from Berklee College of Music focused primarily on upright bass training, he has found himself studying and working with prolific musicians, as well as songwriters and orchestras.
During his time at Berklee College of Music, Peter studied under legendary bass players Bruce Gertz, Susan Hagen (of the Boston Symphony), Oscar Stagnaro, Anthony Vitti, and Victor Wooten. He graduated in 2019 with a Bachelor's Degree in Professional Music with concentrations in Upright Bass Performance and Music Business.

He attributes his highest set of skills to that of the overarching genre of Metal. As a member and primary contributor to countless projects and collaborations, he is considered a master and integral piece of the genre's future. With fluency and a hunger to push musical limits, he performs live in countless musical settings as an electric bassist.
