Don Mayberry is perhaps the top acoustic bassist in Detroit, where he was born and raised. He is equally comfortable playing Jazz and Classical music. He holds degrees from The University of Michigan and Eastern Michigan University, where he attended after a stint with the U.S. Army Symphonic Band in Germany. His credits reflect a veritable who’s who of Jazz, including Ella Fitzgerlad, Sara Vaughn, Tommy Flanagan, Stanley Turentine. He recently played in a duo setting with Aretha Franklin (with Aretha on piano) at New York’s City’s “Tavern on the Green”.
