Donald Mayberry and Friends at the Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church

This is the second of our four free monthly jazz concerts at Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church. The “Jazz at Jefferson” series. This month we have the pleasure of presenting Donald Mayberry.

Don Mayberry is truly a “Musician’s Musician”. Highly skilled in all of the performance skills requiring a double bass, he is the “first-call” for many events in the Detroit area as well as the national scene. At home equally in a dance recital, symphony or chambers setting, Broadway show, his best love is jazz. 

Don’s first professional job at age 13 was performing with the Dorothy Ashby trio. After graduation from high school he toured with David Bowie. While pursuing his musical education he was a member of the Tommy Saunder traditional band as well as touring with renown drummer J.C.Heard’s big band and bebop artists such as Clark Terry. A great favorite of vocalists, he has toured nationally with Lena Horne, Joe Williams, Diane Schuur, Mel Torme, Rosemary Clooney and most recently with Johnny Mathis, and Michael Feinstein.
