Marc Sallis

Band: The Duke Spirit / Ten Benson
Gear: SVT-CL, SVT-810AV

As the bass player with “cult heroes” (NME) The Duke Spirit Marc Sallis has graced some of the world’s grandest stages and has made the dome of the Hollywood Bowl rumble, the walls of Radio City boom and pushed the bass on your TV to the max with appearances on legendary US TV shows such as The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, as well rocking the crap outta the BBC’s Later… with Jools Holland. He’s also shared the stage with the likes of Jane’s Addiction, Incubus, Eagles of Death Metal, The Airborne Toxic Event, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club on his Rock ’n Roll travels.

As a recording artist Sallis has worked with Grammy Award winning producer Andrew Scheps (Adele / Red Hot Chili Peppers / Metallica / Slayer) and his bass playing on tracks by The Duke Spirit have achieved critical acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone, NME, KROQ, KCRW, Time Out, and the La Times, as well as being heard on shows such as CSI and Gossip Girl.

However, Sallis earned his stripes playing guitar with “the gnarliest band in Britain” (Kerrang!) Ten Benson and the short-lived but fast living Stooges-worshipers The Dirty and co-wrote and released ‘Cinnamon’, one of the ‘Greatest Ever Art-rock Tracks’, according to Artrocker Magazine in its rundown of the Top 100 Artrock tracks of all-time.

Over 600 Live shows later, including NINE FULL tours of the USA, NINE FULL tours of the UK, as well as tours of France, Germany, Spain, Canada, Italy and Australia and hundreds of one-off shows in countries as diverse as Sri Lanka, Croatia and the Czech Republic, Sallis is still rocking hard and sounding better than ever thanks to his trusty Ampeg SVT Classic Head & SVT-810V Cab.
