Featured in TIR Episode 207 (Parts 1-2): Nikki Glaspie, a versatile and adventurous drummer who continues to distinguish herself through the idioms of R&B, soul, funk, jazz and the jamband circuit.

Her big break came as a member of superstar Beyonce’s all-female touring band, the Suga Mamas. She then immersed herself in New Orleans funk and became a member of Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, before settling into her present soulful trio known as The Nth Power. Among her many other credits is touring with funk giant Maceo Parker. She has and continues to sit in and jam with hundreds of amazing musicians.
