Monday September, Ike Stubblefield returned
home to Toledo with an appearance at The Peacock Café,
thrilling both the patrons and the local musicians who
turned out to play with the 11Hammond B# virtuoso.
Stubblefield, a music industry legend with
nearly 50 years in the business, spent his early years
backing Motown legends such as the Four Tops, The
Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Martha Reeves, Stevie Wonder and
He lent his soulful R&B style to Al Green,
Ike & Tina Turner, Curtis Mayfield, B.B. King, The Pointer
Sisters and George Benson, and helped create the classic B3
sound that others would imitate for generations to come.
Most recently, Stubblefield jams with Papa
Mali in New Orleans, rocks with Big Hat in Nashville and
produces in his Atlanta Studio. His latest project is The
Ike Stubblefield Trio.
