Megan Joins Varsity Strings on the Bass

We want to welcome Megan, who plays BASS! She plays stand up acoustic Bass, she plays electric stand up Bass, she plays a fretless electric Bass guitar, she is the BEST BRILLIANT BASS BLASTER I've met and she actually said yes to playing with us once in a while, between gigs with the San Diego Youth Symphony.

Everybody's going to Boston:

Sophia and Megan love doing Stray Cat Strut,
wait 'till we throw some drums on this....

Hope Jake doesn't mind Megan singing his personal favorite song.....

If you don't know who Nana Mouskouri was, here she is, glasses and all. 
She wasn't French, but she sang in 15 languages including Mandarin Chinese!

As all Greeks know, she was Greek:

If you'd like a song by her in English, how about this?...

Welcome Megan and welcome Nana to Varsity Strings!

Sophia Joins Varsity Strings

In our endless international search for new and better talent,
we have made the discovery of the century with....


She's a super-talented singer with the La Jolla High School choir, and a featured singer at her church. She's played piano since the age of 4, and likes to sing songs by Adele, Mumford & Sons, the Goo Goo Dolls, The Script, Train, RJA, Florence & the Machine, Muse, Counting Crows and Augustana.

Here she is at the Del Mar Sunset Soiree, singing in the dark! . . .

Here she is at LizFest singing"Boston" -
she knocked out the crowd of mostly jazz musicians:

And at Tio Leo's for the Children's Charity Coalition benefit concert...

Thank you Sophia!
