DC Blues Society Band featuring Ayaba Bey performs “I Just Want to Make Love to You” at the 4th Annual Silver Spring Blues Festival.
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.

They got the party started with “Flashlight.”
