David Garibaldi emerged onto the scene in the early 1970’s by fueling the classic recordings of the group Tower of Power with his innovative and now iconic funk vocabulary. His formal mentors were Chuck Brown and Murray Spivak but David absorbed much from the rhythms of the Oakland, CA music scene as well as the drumming of Zigaboo Modeliste and Bernard Purdie. His style is intricate and demanding, continually pushing the envelope of rhythmic possibilities, but always deeply infused with funk, groove, and musicality. In January of 2017, David was severely injured in a train accident, placing his career in jeopardy. After a lengthy rehabilitation, he is once again touring with Tower of Power, back in driver’s seat of the legendary band he helped to create.
