My name is Luke Vajsar. I'm a solo bassist from Toronto. I consider my music to be very atmospheric, original, melodic and groovy. I have played parties, art galleries, festivals and a huge number of bars and venues. I play original music, maybe throw in a cover here and there but originality is my style. I have been told before that people picture themselves in a Tarantino movie while listening to me play live. I have experience playing all kinds of venues so volume would be perfect, quick set up and exit. If you want a party with cool atmosphere filled with very unique musicianship then check my music out and get in touch! (link hidden)

What to Expect
Amazing atmosphere, that people can talk over and have a good time. Melodic, jazzy sound perfect to a soundtrack. I play original music so it would add to the party's uniqueness. I set up quick, I'm easy to deal with, I just want to play and show off my solo bass music and have a good time.
Luke Vajsar was born in Prague, Czech Republic on May 17, 1979. In 1989 he immigrated to Hamilton, Canada with his brother and parents. When he was given the opportunity to play music at the age of 10 in elementary school, he immediately became very interested. Even though he selected bass as his instrument he was given the trombone by his teacher and developed his skills on the instrument to a level where he was an important part in the best of big bands in his city and neighboring regions; winning national and provincial awards through to 1999. Also, he began playing guitar at this time and kept playing till finally he got his hands on a bass at the age of 13. He transferred his guitar skills to bass playing and became involved with many bands and musicians from his neighborhood. Throughout this time he became inspired to perform solo as well. Solo bass performances led to the recording of ten solo bass albums. Luke is now a full-time member of a band named CODEX and is constantly performing solo or with guests. Performances include countless amount of bars, Toronto Jazz Festival, art galleries etc. He now lives in Toronto Ontario where he has secured a group of musician contacts and fans that push each other to constantly perform and develop their skills to the highest degree.
