AC MUENCH (HE/THEY)
The two greatest things you can ask for from a bassist are reliability and adaptability—and that's just what AC Muench brings to the table. With almost 15 years of experience on upright and electric bass and a bachelor's degree from Berklee College of Music, AC has spent the last few years working as a professional musician. They take pride in their strong sight-reading and vast range of styles—from orchestral to funk fusion to blue grass—that they've cultivated from years of playing with diverse and talented musicians. He is currently on tour with An American in Paris and South Pacific as the pit bassist, traveling with the company across the USA performing two broadway level productions. He has also spent the last three years working as the bassist for the Weathervane Theater in NH, performing in rotating repertory for their summer and fall seasons in shows of drastically different styles every night; from Bright Star to Pippin to Kinky Boots! Outside of the musical theater realm, AC has also worked as a session musician recording tracks for numerous albums. His most recent appearances are on Julia Fortman's 2021 single "I Know Nothing About Love" (where he featured on electric bass), and Stewart Mitchell's Secondhand Sunlight album (where they are featured in four tracks on upright bass).
