John Menzano - Bass

The 80’s and early 90’s were filled with television appearances, touring on the road, and hibernating in the studio. John was a regular member of John Stamos’ band on ABC’s comedy “Full House”. He toured with Sheena Easton, Three Dog Night, and Joshua Kadison. All the while he honed his craft. In 1994, he got a call from an old friend telling him that legendary guitarist Peter White was looking for a bass player. “Playing with Peter White really opened so many doors for me. He is not selfish with his band and has encouraged me to play with others. In fact, he has recommended me to other musicians. Through Peter, I met and toured with Rick Braun, Kirk Whalum, James Ingram, Marc Antoine, Dave Koz, Brian Culbertson, and so many more. I am grateful for all of the opportunities I have been given”.

 The next step for John was to put together a CD of his own songs. “It has always been a goal of mine. On the road, people would ask me when I was releasing my CD. I thought, Why Not? I believe the maturity I have reached with my playing has given me the confidence to do this. I am really excited too. This is definitely a collaborative effort as I am calling on all of my friends to give their input and play on the tracks. Everyone has been so supportive of this endeavor”.

 On a personal note, John lives in Valencia, CA with his wife, Alecia and their son Nick and daughter Mia. “I feel blessed and I thank God everyday for the gifts He has given me--music, my wife, my son—life doesn’t get better than this”.  www.johnmenzano.com
