Since his early days as a ten-year-old kid, LIGE CURRY has been playing and singing. He started
out singing, and then shortly after that, playing BASS guitar for his aunts, uncle, and grandfathers
church, in Flint, Michigan, where there were very cold winters. Therefore, the only thing to do was
to deal with the cold and stay inside, play and pretend.

"The church was one of the only outlets to perform or show off your talent. OTHER THAN THAT, it
was the times when my folks would have company over, and I would perform for all of them. Until it
was time to go to bed. It was great!"

Moving a few years later, to CLEVELAND, OHIO, Lige went to schools in Cleveland, and played in
bands around the area. Afterwards, he graduated from high school and attended two years at
Central State University, majoring in music. Lige then left Cleveland for Los Angeles, California.

At the age of 22, Lige was looking for work. He hooked up with his cousin Michael Hampton, who
was already working with the P-FUNK.

"I wanted to see what cuz was up to. P-FUNK was touring as always. So Mike asked GEORGE
CLINTON could I hang for a while he said sure. I met all the O.G.’S and got to jam around with the
band. They started to remember who I was pretty fast. It was a great sense of family in those days.
I got a job working on the staff and crew it was great! Soon after Skeet Curtis left the band for a
while and I was asked to play BASS GUITAR! I knew it was my chance to dance. So I took it. And I
will always be thankful for the JOB!"

Although Lige plays with GEORGE CLINTON’S P-Funk All-stars, he grew up listening to Larry
Graham, Bootsy Collins, Stanley Clark, Boogie Mosson, Billy Bass Nelson, Rusty Allen, Marcus
Miller, Skeet Curtis, Sting, Billy Cox, John Paul Jones, M.Ndegeocello, John Patitucci. Norwood
Fisher, Les Claypool, Ray Brown, Buster Williams, Verdine White, Robert Kool Bell, Doug Wimbush,
Nathan East, Stuart Hamm, Jaco Pastorious, to name a few.  

Now that Lige has been in the music business for over 30 years now, he looks towards the future.
He has produced many of his own productions including one of his proudest: another bass player,
Starr Cullars & her band! Starr's Funkrock bass style is perfect match for Lige's style. Other
projects he just worked on include Michael Hampton's first C.D, as well as his own C.D, and albums
by DRUGS,RX!, 420fm with Clip Payne, NU PHOUND NATION, Frank Kash, Blackbyrd, Steve Boyd's
sex Drugs & R&B, Bernie Worrell's album and more.
