Dennis Chambers

Dennis Chambers has been delivering the funk for over 35 years now since he joined Parliament/Funkadelic at the age of 18 and rocked out with George Clinton until 1985. A major force on the jazz fusion scene, Chambers also supplied the beat for Carlos Santana, George Duke and John Scofield. He was also the house drummer for pioneering hip hop label Sugar Hill Records.
