Maceo Parker Net Worth $800,000
Maceo was born into a family that was inclined to music, playing a variety of instruments. He and his brother Melvin joined James Brown in 1964, and found success as part of the band so Maceo’s net worth started to increase. Six years later he and other band members left to establish Maceo & All the King’s Men, and toured for two years before in 1974 returning to James Brown.
He helped create the charting single “Parrty – Part I”, but the following year, he joined George Clinton’s Parliament-Funkadelic which went on to have success in the late 1970s. In 1984, he then returned again to perform with James Brown for the next four years.
Parker started his solo career in the 1990s, and released his first album – “Roots Revisited” – which found success, and so his net worth continued to increase. He released several albums in the next few years including the live album “Life on Planet Groove” on which he collaborated with saxophonist Candy Dulfer. In 1993, he contributed to the album “Buhloone Mindstate” by De La Soul, and also worked with Prince, Jane’s Addiction, and the Dave Matthews Band. In 2007, he performed with Prince’s band for the “Prince’s 21 nights” at the O2 arena, then worked on a Ray Charles tribute album “Roots & Grooves” on which he collaborated with the WDR Big Band; the album won a best Jazz Album Jammie in 2009. They would also work on the album “Soul Classics”.
In 2011, Maceo was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame, and the following year, Victoires Du Jazz in Paris awarded him a Lifetime Achievement Award. In 201 he received the North Carolina Heritage Award, while continuing to perform and tour regularly, appearing in many jazz festivals throughout Europe – he was even reported to have held around 290 concerts in a year. He also released an autobiography entitled “98% Funky Stuff: My Life In Music”, and was also portrayed by Craig Robinson in the James Brown biopic “Get on Up”.

|1||You know what? I love people. I really do. To a point where I almost can’t stand to watch the news because if I see something happen to somebody, it almost feels as if it’s happening to somebody in my family or somebody I know. I’m really sensitive, but I don’t have a cocoon I can just hide into. That’s why I enjoy going around the world doing what I do, and I try to say ‘love” as much as possible. A lot of artists say ‘love’, but I really try to have people learn to love themselves and love each other. You know what I mean?|
