Originally from Westfield, NJ (a New York City suburb), Patrick Glynn has performed in just about any musical situation imaginable. † Beginning the trumpet at age 10, he moved his way down to the bass clef to play the tuba at age 13 and has been there ever since.† The electric bass would follow soon after. † It wasn't until the late fall of 1994, after performing on tuba and electric bass in the Disneyland All-American College Band, that Pat discovered the double bass. † That discovery changed his life.† Two and-a-half years later, he would graduate from Northern Illinois University with a MM in Jazz Studies and Pedagogy on bass.
His professional performing experience includes all styles of music but has remained tethered to jazz and Broadway for the last several years. † As a tuba player, Pat was part of the world's only full-time tuba quartet-The TubaFours-at the Walt Disneyworld resort in Orlando, Florida. †The music scene in Orlando granted Pat the opportunity to rehearse and perform on both the bass and tuba with the legendary Sam Rivers.† He also gained invaluable experience while freelancing as a substitute with Disneyworld's different musical groups like The Disneyworld Orchestra (double bass), The Magic Kingdom Band (tuba), Tarzan Rocks! (electric bass), The Hollywood Hitmen (electric bass/tuba), and The FutureCorps (contra).†
After 2 years at "the mouse," Pat was asked to go out on the road with the National Tour of Chicago: the Musical to perform on both the tuba and double bass.† Other national tours include:† Chicago, Annie Get Your Gun, Saturday Night Fever, Fiddler on the Roof, and Tic-Tic-Boom (substitute).† This experience led him to move back to the NYC area in 2002 to perform on Broadway. His NYC credits include Chitty-Chitty, Bang-Bang, Mother Courage (Public Theater), Chicago: the Musical (substitute), †Mary Poppins, and the Big Apple Circus (substitute).† As a jazz musician, Pat has performed at clubs such as the Blue Note, Cleopatra's Needle, and Smalls and has played with a list of artists that includes Sam Rivers, Fareed Haque, Slide Hampton, Nate Smith, as well as many staples of the New York scene . † As a commercial musician, he's backed up acts including Bobby Vinton, Al Martino, and even the Icelandic rock band Sigur Ros at Madison Square Garden, the Westbury Music Fair, Harrah's Casino, and Resorts International.
