"A HELLUVA BASS PLAYER"- BOB BUTTA


"HE'S A GOOD BASS PLAYER"- MIKE POPE


"A GREAT MUSICIAN"- VINNIE COLAIUTA


Jon Steele is a busy bass player in DC working with many of the city’s great jazz musicians and artists from all over the world including, Chiek Hamala Diabate, Huda Asfour, Broto Roy, Vinnie Colaiuta, Louise Mandrell, Ju Ju House, and many, many more.

Originally from the southeast, Jon studied music at the University of Tennessee and received degrees in Studio Music/Jazz and Double Bass Performance. Upon graduation, he worked all over the east coast playing with big bands, symphonies, soca bands, jam bands…pretty much everything but country. In the course of playing many styles, Jon has developed a deep love for the groove and chops to play some very difficult bass.

In 2016, Jon released his first album as a band leader. The CD features original compositions and arrangements played by some incredible musicians from DC, Baltimore, New York, and LA.
