Scott Siska - bass guitar and vocals

A native of Chicago Illinois, Scott Siska has been playing bass since the age of 14 and continues to hone his skill. Now, a resident of Bethlehem, Scott is one of the most sought after bass players in the Lehigh Valley music scene.

At the age of 21, Scott was already a veteran of hundreds of live club dates, jamming and recording. In 1982, he joined Crisis - a popular Lehigh Valley party Reggae Ska band. Through the late eighties and early nineties, Scott played bass for Mike Dugan and the Survival Band, a legendary regional blues group.

Always eager to expand his range, Scott kept busy recording and playing along many other favorites groups, such as Righteous, which served to help launch the successful national career of Bethlehem native, Chris 'Breeze' Barczynski. Scott has played for many years with numerous other Lehigh Valley favorites, including The Jake Kaligis Band, Steve Brosky and the Big Little Band, the Joes, and the Lou Franco Project.

Scott first played with Don in December 2010 when he travelled to New York City with The Cabinet to play a charity benefit at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel to raise money for the First Book organization during the annual Pennsylvania Society festivities in Manhattan. Scott’s outstanding vocal talent and his delightful control of his Fender bass makes him a stand out with fans of Cunningham & Associates.
