George Clinton (Part 1): Make My Funk the P Funk…
George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic brought the funk to the National Mall at the Smithsonian’s Folklife Festival! The Bring Back the Funk concert, hosted by Tom Joyner, as part of the National Museum of African American History and Culture fundraising efforts. The museum is scheduled to open in Washington DC in 2015. George’s mothership, which was previously used during performances, will be part of the museum’s collection.
Be sure to check back for Part 2 tomorrow for more photos and video! (Editor’s Note: Part 2 now available!)
They got the party started with “Flashlight.”
