Longtime Las Vegas resident Nate Wingfield hails from Philadelphia, PA and started his pro career at the age of 14. Through his long, successful career he has played with Evelyn "Champagne" King, Brian McKnight, Phyllis Hyman, Jackie Jackson (Jackson 5) and Irene Cara - to name a few.
After Nate produced dance-artist Shannon's "Let Me See Your Body Move", he worked in the studio with Hip Hop artist Africa Bambatta and toured with Kurtis Blow. Nate is currently the lead guitarist with the Family Stone which is led by the founding members and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Jerry Martini and Greg Errico (and the late, great Cynthia Robinson) of the legendary group Sly And The Family Stone.
Nate was also a member of the Las Vegas Allstars which was the house band at BB Kings Blues Club Las Vegas where they backed many musical greats including BB King, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Willie Nelson, Steve Cropper, Lee Ritenour and more.

He looks forward to the music industry’s return to the heart and soul of "just good music".
