A giant of the electric bass in a primarily jazz-fusion context, Bernard “Bunny” Brunel has waxed seminal sides and performed on stage with Al Di Meola, Mike Stern, Joe Farrell, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Tony Williams, Al Jarreau, and Wayne Shorter to cite a select few.

In addition to his tenure in fusion super-group CAB with Tony McAlpine and Dennis Chambers, Bunny is an award winning solo recording artist, writer, clinician, arranger, soundtrack composer (The Unforgiven with Clint Eastwood; Highlander, among others), bass designer, and educator.  Brunel cites his influences as Sam Jones, Ray Brown, Ron Carter, Eddie Gomez, Miroslav Vitous and Stanley Clarke.

Bunny’s weapons of choice include Fender, Carvin, ESP, Yamaha, the GIBSON Bunny Brunel model, EUB upright, and LaBella round-wound strings.
