Dion Marlow

Artist of the Month | October 2017

 

The K&K Bass Master Rockabilly is an extremely reliable, high quality pickup I have been using for years that allows the natural sound of the bass to be enhanced. The preamp that allows full control of each pickup and gives me the option of get a variety of sounds very easily when needed.

Dion Marlow, now aged 19, has been on the Rock’N'Roll Circuit since the age of 6. He has been playing the double bass since aged 9 after seeing Bob Cotton from The Jets play the bass at the local Rock’N'Roll Venue. Ever since, he has been playing the Doublebass on a daily basis. Dion’s father set up a R’n'R band in 2008 called Rockin’em and Dion has been performing with Rockin’em ever since, performing all across the UK at various venues from local clubs to large festivals. As well as the UK, Dion has now performed in France, Belgium and Spain. This list of countries is extending with performances in Italy and Holland confirmed for 2017.

Inspired by a variety styles of R’n'R from Jazz / Swing to Roaring Rockabilly, Dion has developed his own style of playing the double bass, especially after seeing live performances from JD Mcpherson, The Keytones, The Jets & The Bellfuries.
