Bio

Ike Stubblefield is commonly hailed as a modern master of the Hammond B3. After more than 40 years of playing, he still carries in the pure Hammond tradition. In fact, Ike has B3s stashed all over the world so he will not have to use inferior equipment.

Over the years Ike has brought that true sound to the stage and studio with the likes of Eric Clapton, Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, Ike and Tina Turner, B.B. King, George Benson, Col. Bruce Hampton, The Jerry Garcia Band, Al Green and the Derek Trucks Band, just to name a few. The Ike Stubblefield Band recently toured parts of Europe with Maceo Parker. He has worked as a composer/producer with Wendy Waldman, Jim Capaldi, Phil Spector and many others during his time spent in San Francisco, New York, London and Atlanta.

Since the late-60’s his artistry has been featured on hundreds of albums, tours and film/TV projects and he is still recording and mixing some of his best work today. The upcoming soulfully funky release, 'Old Souls on New Shoes' finds him stepping out of the sideman shadows with the Ike Stubblefield Band.

However, Ike is not one to harp on the days of yore. Like he is prone to say, “that was all yesterday, I’m moving forward.”

With the newly formed Ike Stubblefield Band, he will be able to record multiple projects that reflect his diverse creative output. From latin to jam, multiple projects are in the works with many of his closest associates.

Over the past year Ike brought in some dear old friends to help out on the 'Old Souls on New Shoes' sessions. We are talking about talent in the form of Bernard Purdie, Fred Vigdor, Marcus Williams, Joey Sommerville, Bob Baldwin, Grant Green, Jr. and many others. The result is an album that allows the players to branch out on old school beats and give them a modern twist. Expect a digital single from this album in coming months.

The core touring band that will support the album is a three piece consisting of Drums, Guitar and B3. The basic three-piece can be augmented with special guests as the talent buyer wishes.

However, there are two more projects Ike is currently writing for. One being a latin album that will feature Steve Gadd on drums. The other will feature Col. Bruce Hampton, Jimmy Herring and Jeff Sipe.

Worldwide tour dates ramping up for the 'Old Souls on New Shoes' release will start in April 2008 and focus on key festival and club dates. The Ike Stubblefield Band is also entertaining package deals and select opening slots on larger tours.
