At the tender age of 18, Bynum joined the legendary Bootsy Collins Group for several shows before attending Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio. After graduating, Bynum joined the world famous Commodores and ventured on several world tours of Europe, Asia, Africa, as well as the USA. Playing sax, flute, keyboards and drums, Bynum would also join the Commodores for concerts in Bermuda, Nassau Bahamas, and the Virgin Island with an appearance on the Motown 25th Anniversary television show.

Bynum performed for several years with international recording artists The Brothers Johnson, and appeared on the TV show Motown Live. Later, Bootsy’s Rubber band called him back for more international touring and recording. During this time, he played on Bootsy’s CD entitled Bootsy’s New Rubber Band Live in Japan.

As a studio musician, Bynum was featured on the song “Make My Funk The P-Funk”, along with funk master keyboardist Bernie Worrell. Bynum has also recorded and performed with stellar award-winning gospel artist Kenny Smith and many other artists. His new album Donn B! (2021) features Gary “Mudbone” Cooper (formerly with Bootsy’s Rubber Band), Vincent “Cino” Calloway (formerly with Midnight Star and Calloway), Sheldon Reynolds (formerly with Earth, Wind, & Fire for 15 years), and many others!

The album is available on your favorite online retailers.
