Dennis Chambers

Dennis Chambers is a most respected American drummer who has recorded and performed with John Scofield, Carl Filipiak, Steely Dan, Santana, Parliament/Funkadelic, John McLaughlin, Niacin, Mike Stern, and many others.

Dennis Chambers has become well-known among drummers for his impressive technique and speed.

Dennis Chambers is particularly regarded for his ability to play "in the pocket" but can also stretch very far out of the pocket which is also a hallmark of his technique. Chambers exhibits a powerful style that is technically proficient, yet highly musical and groove-oriented. He can play in a wide variety of musical genres, but is perhaps most notable for his jazz-fusion, funk, and Latin music playing. He is mostly known for his fast hands and triplets on the bass drum.

Chambers began drumming at the age of four years old, and was gigging in Baltimore-area nightclubs by the age of six. In 1978 (at 18 years old) he joined Parliament/Funkadelic, and stayed with them until 1985. In the early 1990s he joined the John Scofield band. Since then he has played with most of the major figures in jazz fusion music.

He has been part of the Maceo Parker live band and is touring with Carlos Santana and makes appearances with his band Niacin.

In 2011 Chambers appeared as a featured drummer on the Late Show with David Letterman’s Drum Solo Week II

2005 till 2014: Santana - 2007: Tower Of Power - 2016: Mike Stern

In July 2014, Chambers experienced some medical issues which kept him out of the music scene for a number of months.

He plays Pearl drums, Zildjian cymbals, Zildjian sticks,and Evans drumheads.
