Neil Barker


Neil started his musical career playing trumpet, but soon realised it was the bass the instrument for him and has been perfecting his skills ever since.


He has played in multiple bands covering a variety of genres including modern country, rock, soul, blues, jazz and dance. Together with this variety of musical styles Neil brings a warmth and depth of feel to the Shakedown Brothers.

Neil's playing shows influences of Meshel Ndegeocello, Marcus Miller, Pino Pallandino Michael Rhodes and Micheal League - quite a list!
