Bring Dat Funk! Thump Daddy Live at Notes

  • Notes 520 South High Street Columbus, OH, 43215 United States (map)

Donald Payne’s talents evolved during the 70’s when he joined a Columbus soul group, The Crowd  Pleasers. It was through this group that he was able to join forces with the legendary Ohio Player,  Walter “Junie” Morrison. After touring with Junie, The Crowd Pleasers later received a five-year recording contract under Westbound Records.

During October 1998 Donald met Wilbert Longmire, jazz recording guitar player, and completed the  recording of two songs at “Bootsy” William Collins recording studio in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1999 Bootsy
invited Donald back to record in his studio and complete two songs for Fred Wesley, trombonist and  formerly of the James Brown Band, Parliament - George Clinton, and Bootsy’s band.  March 2004, Donald became the bass player for Que and Malaika,  a Hip Roc Soul group out of Dayton Ohio. This group was the  opening act for George Clinton on his P Funk Tour.

Donald Payne stays true to the funk with his latest solo release  “Check Again, A Player Just Step In”. On this CD the Bass Man takes it to the stage with 11 solid cuts on the offering.
