Bernie Worrell

Bernie Worrell began playing classical music as a small child and it soon led to his life-long passion for music! He met George Clinton, who at the time was leading a Doo-Wop group called The Parliaments. As Bernie experimented with electronic keyboards and synthesizers he teamed with George to pen several songs. As the group began to record they established a loyal fan base and soon hit the charts with what are now classic funk songs such as “Flash Light.” Over the decades Bernie could be found at most winter NAMM Shows demonstrating the latest gear from companies like Dave Smith Designs.
