George Clinton (Part 2): ‘Cause I Want to Get Funked Up

Written by , Posted in Canon 7D, Concert, Funk, Music, R&B-Soul, Video, Washington DC

(Continued from Part 1)

 

The Bring Back the Funk concert with George Clinton was easily one of my favorites ever!

 

 

The concert was high energy throughout, but Mary Griffin absolutely stole the show with her rendition of “Dr. Feelgood.”

 

Of course George had to shot out the Omegas with “Atomic Dog.”

 

The crowd demanded an encore, but host Tom Joyner informed the crowd that the Park Service wouldn’t extend the concert beyond the allotted time.

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.”

They Call Her J-I-L-L-S-C-O-T-T…

… Ms. Jill Scott representing North Philly!  I first heard of Jill Scott on “You Got Me” from The Roots’ “Come Alive” album.  My freshman year at Howard she dropped “Who Is Jill Scott, Vol 1” album, and I’ve been a fan ever since.  I’ve now seen her in concert four times with a unique experience each time.  I love  artists who excel in live performances, and Jill always takes it to the next level.

Midway through the show she switched it up and put a wig on…

Kem was one of three opening acts.  Admittedly, I don’t know his music beyond his radio hits, but I would definitely see him in concert again.
