Born in 1959, Dennis Chambers began drumming at the age of four, 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, when he joined the John Scofield band. He was recruited by Doug Wimbish in 1981 to be the Sugar Hill label house drummer. Since then, he has played with most of the major figures in jazz fusion music. He's played with Stanley Clarke, Sly Stone, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, Sugar Hill Gang, Santana, Steely Dan, Maceo Parker and many more. Despite a lack of formal training, Chambers has become well known for his technique and speed, especially his fast hands and triplets on the bass drum. Chambers is particularly regarded for his ability to play in the pocket, but can also stretch very far out of the pocket, which is a hallmark of his technique. Chambers exhibits a powerful style that is technically proficient, yet highly musical and groove-oriented. He can play a wide variety of musical genres, but is perhaps most known for his jazz-fusion, funk, and Latin music playing. He plays and endorses Pearl drums, pedals, hardware & racks, Zildjian cymbals, Zildjian drumsticks & general accessories and Evans drumheads.
