World-famous funk drummer Dennis Chambers has been inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of fame in 2001.
Chambers received a Honorary Doctor of Music from Berklee College of Music in 2004.
Well known to drummers for his impressive technique and speed. Chambers is particularly appreciated for
his ability to play “in the pocket” but can also stretch very far from the pocket, which is also a characteristic of his
technical. Chambers exhibits a powerful style that is technically proficient, yet highly musical and
groove oriented. He is best known for his fast hands and triplets on the bass drum. He can play in a wide
variety of musical genres, but is perhaps most notable for its jazz-fusion, funk and Latin music playing.
Chambers’ talented diversity is enhanced by his highly respected catalog of artists he has recorded and
performed with: Tommy Coster, John Scofield, George Duke, Victor Wooten, Brecker Brothers, Carlos
Santana, Houses of Parliament/Funkadelic, John McLaughlin, Mike Stern, Tower of Power, Maceo Parker, Steely Dan
and many other iconic artists.
Through it all, Oz Noy’s guitar is the common thread. Whether leading the group with an incisive and austere rhythm
work or soar through the grooves with flawless single-note leads reminiscent of graceful, nuanced inflection
from a fine soul singer, Noy walks brilliantly on a musical tightrope covering the best of the past and the future.
Surprising, danceable and accessible, Who Gives a Funk is a powerfully heartfelt new statement from one of
great contemporary guitar improvisers. Listening to this on CD is amazing, seeing this show live is
