Musician, Harmonicist

Lester Chambers performed with his brothers as the Chambers Brothers, a band that became a pivotal group beginning in the late 1960s.  The band had style, so much so that bluesman Snooky Flowers reported in his NAMM interview that, "We all went to check out the Chambers Brothers to hear them and to see them!  They were so cool!  They dressed as good as they played and we all wanted to be them!"  Lester was proud of the role he has played in the band and in encouraging others to pick up an instrument, like a cowbell, and just play!
