Waldo performs worldwide after having toured and been on stage with the Nite-Liters (1968-70), Charley Pride (1979- 1989), Johnny Taylor (1985-1987) and with Superstars such as Michael Jackson (1998) as seen on the BET Awards 1998 show, and Phil Collins (2010-2011). For four years Sir Waldo was also the headlining act on cruise tours on the MS Europa (the only 6-Star cruiseline in the world). Sir Waldo’s musical style can be compared to the Funk & Soul style of James Brown, Maceo Parker, Parliament and Bootsy Collins. This is why he has been labeled as the “Pope of Funk”.

Waldo grew up in Kentucky and at only 12 years of age, he was asked to perform with a group in a nightclub. The Saxman started out with Rhythm and Blues bands and went on to do Country music and then jumped to Smooth Jazz & Funk. And yes, Sir Waldo also plays Gospel. As a matter of fact, Sir Waldo Weathers was awarded the honor of receiving a letter of acknowledgement as the “First Black Country Saxophone Player” in the Country Music Hall of fame in 1985!

Formerly Sir Waldo was based in the “World Music City” and capital of Tennesse, NASHVILLE and is currently resides in his new home base of Stuttgart, Germany.

Having worked as Waldo's personal Booking Agent, I got to know him personally. People are drawn to his great sense of humor and charismatic personality. Continually willing to reinvent himself, Sir Waldo has proven that it's wise to never give up towards reaching your dreams. Sir Waldo's biggest dream was to form a tribute band to James Brown. That dream has now come true for him.
