Mark Robertson   
Profile:
Nashville-based upright and electric bassist, Mark Robertson, has spent the last ten years touring the world with his band, Th' Legendary ShackShakers. Having recently finished recording their sixth studio album Agridustrial, they have once again hit the road to promote their new material. The ShackShakers have headlined throughout the U.S. and Europe, as well as having opened for artists such as Robert Plant, The Reverend Horton Heat, Rancid and the Pogues. He can also be seen playing upright bass for The Dirt Daubers, and electric bass for Joshua Black Wilkins, among others. Mark etched out a little piece of Nashville music history by founding and hosting Juke Joint Mondays at the former Slow Bar in East Nashville. A diverse collection of artists made a point to stop by and sit in on these Monday night sessions, including Ryan Adams, Kenny Vaughn, Mike Campbell, Lucinda Williams, Rodney Crowell, Cowboy Jack Clement, Joan Osborne and Radney Foster (to name just a few). He also has appeared regularly on the Grand Ol' Opry and Music City Roots. In addition to producing all the Shackshakers’ albums, Mark has produced records for many artists from all over the world, out of his Nashville recording studio Stainless Sound. Hundreds of his original recordings have been featured in television shows and commercials, and music from the ShackShakers has been featured on HBO's True Blood, Showtime’s The United States of Tara, and the Julia Roberts' film Duplicity. The Shackshakers’ single “Swamp Blood” was featured on the Grammy-nominated soundtrack for True Blood. Currently, Mark is writing, directing and producing a documentary film about slap-style double bass, which will include his interviews with some of the world’s best players, past and present. Mark, and Th' ShackShakers will also be the featured artist and musical directors for an upcoming theatrical production called "F.U.B.A.R." in Copenhagen, Denmark, from May 5th to June 5th, 2011.

On his recent signing as an official Genz Benz artist, Mark says, "This was a no-brainer for me… I have never been happier with my amps and cabs before now. You want a great sound out of these rigs? Just turn 'em on and play! Sounds incredible set completely flat. Name another amp that can do that. BUT, if you want to tweak sounds, you have options for days…headroom, clarity, grit…this thing can do whatever you ask it to…The ShuttleMax 12.0 is the most amazing amp for loud upright bass made yet. No mystery to me that Genz Benz amps and cabs are quickly becoming THE standard for upright bass players. Oh, and it's replaced all my old tube 'lead sleds' for bass guitar gigs too! Under 7lbs. and dual voltage means this thing can go anywhere in the world with me. Like I said, it's a no-brainer."
