Prakash John on Bass & Vocals
It doesn't take long for an audience to recognize that Prakash John has stage presence; a bit unusual for a bass player perhaps, but certainly not unusual for a musician with his experience and professional background.
John started playing bass at the age of 17 and never looked back. He collaborated with anumber of Canadian artists and finally made his way to Los Angeles where he played bass for such bands as White Trash, Derek & the Dominos and Parliament/Funkadelic.
Most notably, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 as a member of Parliament/Funkadelic. He has also worked with a number of artists as a solo performer: Lou Reed, Alice Cooper, James Brown, Paul Shaffer and the Blues Brothers to name a few.
John left mainstream rock in 1979, returning to Toronto to found his second R&B band, The Lincolns, one of the last remaining bands which represent the Toronto Sound. He spends his time these days playing with his son, Jordan John throughout Toronto and the surrounding area.
