Connie is the bass player for "Cookin' With Gas!" She started playing music at 8 years old when her fabulous parents bought her a small Magnus Chord Organ. Soon after, they refurbished an old Bradbury baby grand piano. During the years since then, she played clarinet and oboe in elementary, middle and high school, and then picked up acoustic guitar. Christmas of 1999 her wonderful sister gave her an Ibanez Bass Guitar and that started her new musical direction.
