Mario Cipollina

Most recognized for his tenure as the brooding bassist who anchored Huey Lewis & The News during their 1980s platinum run, Mario Cipollina also plied his craft quite impressively with his brother John for Quicksilver Messengers Service (Solid Silver), Tony Williams Lifetime (The Joy of Flying), Nick Lowe & His Cowboy Outfit, and Melvin Seals, among others.  A pocket player with a flair for rhythm & blues, Mario is still on the bandstand in his native Bay Area.
