Chunky's bio

The newest member of the band brings a new intensity to D-FOR. The son of a minister, Chunky began his drumming career as a youngster playing in his dad’s church.

Gospel music and the church environment proved to be fertile ground for this drummer (many musicians can attest to this!) and his influences soon changed to Dennis Chambers, Dave Weckl, Steve Gadd and local monster drummer John Roberts.

Although his chops increased, church remained his main gig until a local cover band out of Philly called the “Booker Boyz” offered him an audition. Chunky nailed the gig, which led to stints with several R&B bands throughout Philadelphia, New Jersey and Delaware.

Since those early days, Chunky has performed with Glenn Jones, Kenyatta Lamone, Jeffrey Murrell, and recorded with the group Special Blends and Owen “Fidla” Brown. He occasionally performs with jazz vocalist Gloria Allende. Please welcome the talents of Mr. Chunky Ezekiel!
