Party: What the Funk? Mar. 3 2011 @ Mercury Lounge

A night dedicated to FUNK* music

Date: March 3, 2011
Time: 6pm-1am
Venue: Mercury Lounge, ABC Place

* Funk is an American musical style that originated in the mid to late 1960s when African American musicians blended soul music, soul jazz and R&B into a rhythmic, danceable new form of music.
Funk bands sometimes have a horn section of several saxophones, trumpets, and in some cases, a trombone, which plays rhythmic “hits”.
American funk performers include James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone, George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic, Curtis Mayfield, The Meters, The Funk Brothers, Bootsy Collins, Rick James, and Prince. Notable funk bands of the 1970s and 1980s included Rufus feat. Chaka Khan, Earth, Wind & Fire, Eric Burdon & War, Tower of Power, Average White Band, The Ohio Players, The Commodores, Kool & the Gang and Cameo, though many of these most famous bands in the genre also played disco and soul extensively.
Funk music was a major influence on the development of disco music, and funk samples were present in most styles of house music and early hip hop music.
