Memo Mendoza, a 26 year old bass player from Mexico, has been playing since the age of 13, “I started jamming songs from Iron Maiden and some other metal bands”. A few years later he decided to take a music degree where he discovered diferent kinds of music, such as jazz, latin, and funk.
In 2016, Memo was part of the line up at “Wacken Open Air” in Germany with the thrash metal band “Tulkas”. With two albums released (Freedom Thoughts 2016), (Take the World 2018), Tulkas were the opening act for bands such as “Lamb of God”, “Havok”, “Nervosa”, “Onslaught”, among many others; and performed at other heavy metal festivals in Mexico including “Hell & Heaven”, “Knotfest”, “Mexico Metal Fest III”.
In 2020 he was signed by the german label “Noble Demon Records” releasing their brand new EP “The Beginning of the End”.
Besides metal and session work, Memo has released an EP with “Gravity Funk” who are currently on tour in Mexico on the Jazz/Funk festival circuit.
When I first heard about Chapman guitars, I was amazed by how great the instruments looked, but after putting the MLb1 FF DH to work, I can fully trust in what they make, it is one of the best basses I've played and heard. It's an honor to be part of the Chapman family.
