The Podcast Gets Uptown Funky: Meet Kameron Whalum
Did you miss the July I Love Memphis podcast? Is it because you’re not a subscriber? Not to worry, I have the streaming version in this post – but to be sure you don’t miss any more, click here to subscribe.
In July, Kevin and I sat down with Kameron Whalum, the Memphis-based trombonist and musical performer who has traveled with Bruno Mars and performed all over the world including at the GRAMMYs and at not one, but two Super Bowl Halftime Shows (whoa). He talks about his experiences, background, the Memphis music scene, and more.
He’s coming out with a solo album sometime soon, and you can bet I’ll let y’all know about that.
Kameron with Muhammed Ali, no big deal.
Kameron dancing behind Beyonce. Also no big deal.
