Stefano

Stefano Cosentino is a musician for all seasons. A bassist across all genres.

 

“Stefano filled in for us at short notice and it really helped us out of a jam. He was punctual, looked the part and was easy to work with” – Simon Morel – Soul Messengers


“I have had the pleasure of knowing Stefano Cosentino for over a year now, and in that time I have seen him in duo mode, full band mode and in band leader mode. I have also rehearsed and performed with him. It is a measure of my great respect for his professionalism, creativity and positive, cheerful attitude that he was at the top of my list when I recently called for players for a new project. I look forward to as long as musical relationship as possible with Stefano”

After a lifetime of experience, having just  performed Norma Jean Wright (formerly of CHIC), Cynthia Johnson (the original voice of Funkytown), Ultra Naté (Stars On 54), Kym MazelleDenise Pearson (Five Star) and Pauline Henry (The Chimes), and along side some of Australia’s most talented musicians and artists, and finally, not to mention, a brilliant 45 piece Symphony Orchestra conducted by the amazing George Ellis. Stefano moves to the rocking Country and Western with CK and the 45’s, the Acoustic dirty blues with the Snakemen, and formerly to the rollicking blues of Whiskey Empire as well as many others.

“Working with Stefano has never been anything but extremely positive. Personally, he had always been warm, friendly and kind. Professionally he is reliable, dedicated, punctual and completely dependable. He is an incredibly passionate and talented musician, solid as a rock. If only they could all be like him! Simply put, he’s ‘the man.”Bonnie KayBonnie Kay and the Bonafides

He is one of Australia’s busiest first-call musicians. Priding himself on ‘playing the song’ whatever the genre or instrument, and providing an energetic and entertaining stage presence, Stefano keeps getting called back.

“Stefano came to the venue I worked at and produced
THE BEST TONE WE HAVE HEARD here at Modus Operandi. He melted faces and warmed hearts. Great blues, great tone, great times. This is the guy you want on the strings. Give him a call!” – Alexander Levi – Modus Operandi Brewery
He is also a composer for backing tracks, radio stations, soundscapes and soundtracks for short film, keeping up with the state-of-the-art in musical and recording technology.
Always on time. Always in tune. Always sounding great. Always with a smile.
Stefano Cosentino is a name you will be hearing a lot of.


“Stefano is a true professional and a pleasure to work with. He stepped in and saved the day when we had a performer pull out last minute and ensured he was prompt and prepared at all rehearsals and was courteous and supportive of everyone involved in the show. We hope to have Stefano be a part of Darkside Dance Collective again in the future.”
