AN EVENING OF FUNK

George Clinton and the Parliament FunkadelicLakeside

Los Angeles – The KHHT-FM Hot 92.3 Old School Funkfest at The Greek Theatre last Saturday was cooler than a polar bear’s toenails.

I ain’t lyin.

With the likes of legendary artists and musicians such as George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, The Original Lakeside, Confunkshun, Slave, and Jojo – you already know the set was packed.

George Clinton and the Parliament FunkadelicConcert-goers committed wholeheartedly to the function and gladly dressed the part, as men wore white linen suits and gators, women donned tie-dyed hippie dresses hitting just above the knee.

Might I add that virtually no one stayed in their seats?

Folks were two-steppin in Soul Train lines in the aisle-way, doing the bump, and freakin to ‘Slide’ ‘Fantastic Voyage’ and ‘Dog Catcher.’  Could it be due to the peculiar scents lingering in the air?  I don’t know.  All I know is, I felt happy. 🙂

Momentous occasions included:  Confunkshun’s tribute to the legendary George Duke (Rest In Peace), The Original Lakeside’s grand entrance through the crowd, and George Clinton’s caramel candied pin-striped suit, an obvious dismount from his previous signature look of  psychedelic dreads and space suits.   It didn’t matter though, because he still did this thing.

Oh yeah, I had a stoned gas time honey.  I’m lookin forward to next year.

Love, Peace and Sou!
