Best Bassist - 2013
With a spry grin and his signature mutton chops, Joey Glynn provides the backbone to arguably the most successful band currently calling St. Louis home: Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three. But because there are probably only five standup bassists in the whole city (give or take a few), finding a bassist exclusive to your band is pretty much impossible. Thus Glynn is a perpetually shared band member who also lends his talents to the Rum Drum Ramblers and pretty much anyone willing to let him grace the stage. Standup isn't his only talent, though: Glynn is a multi-instrumentalist who brings more talent to the table than your grandmother's homemade apple pie (no offense, Grandma).
