Dom Baschek – Born 17th September 1992
Joined the band in November 2012 after wanting to try out some mandolin on a few tracks, but ended up mostly playing Electric Guitar.
Dom works as Production Manager to fellow band Ferocious Dog as well as attending university. He also works at The Black Market music venue owned by Ferocious Dog bassist Dave Drury
“I’ve played guitar for around 7 years as well as learning Bass, Mandolin and Banjo along the way. I’ve mostly been into playing Rock and Blues so playing Folk Rock is all new to me but I’m getting better every time I play with the Brad Dear Band”
Dom’s favourite bands include: AC/DC, Stiff Little Fingers, Motorhead and The Cult as well as blues artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Gary Moore and Rory Gallagher
“My biggest influences have to be Angus Young, Roy Buchanan, Jake Burns and Lord Bishop who I’ve shared the stage with on numerous occasions. I also like playing some 80s metal often playing Whitesnake and Sammy Hagar covers in previous bands”
Dom’s favourite Brad Dear Band track is Island in the Sea
