Bootsy Collins and The Funk Unity Band
Clad in multihued top hats and starred sunglasses, Bootsy Collins is a recognizable character before he even begins to lay down his hip-shaking bass grooves. Then his intricate, rubbery bass patterns and shape-shifting, theatrical vocals start up, and crowds stop staring and start dancing. A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and former collaborator with James Brown and Parliament-Funkadelic, Collins has shaped the backbone of megahits including James Brown's "Super Bad" and Deee-Lite's "Groove Is in the Heart." Backed by The Unity Funk Band, Collins rocks live sets with his custom-made, star-shaped Space Bass in tow, flashing wide grins as he bops along to his dance-floor fillers such as his own "Stretchin' Out" and Parliament's "Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof Off the Sucker)."
House of Blues New Orleans
At home in the French Quarter, the House of Blues New Orleans keeps its heritage ever near with a metal box of mud from the Mississippi Delta hidden beneath its stage. Around this, more than 290 pieces of folk art—one of the largest collections in the country—decorate the walls and cover up the evidence of indoor shot-put practice. Also bringing its Southern charm and homestyle feel are hardwood floors, no fewer than three bars, and two levels for concert viewing.
