Some know him as Dr. Funkenstein. Some call him Mr. Wiggles the Worm. Others hail him as the commander of The Mothership. Yet apart his many monikers and stage names, George Clinton has established himself as the father of funk. He has spent a lifetime bringing righteous beats to the dance-starved masses and now continues on into his eighth decade. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and his bass-thumping bandmates set bodies in motion without installing conveyor belts into the floors as they infiltrate the airwaves with hits such as "Flashlight," "Atomic Dog," and "Do Fries Go with That Shake?"
Opening for the mastermind of Parliament-Funkadelic are funk powerbands Lakeside, Con Funk Shun, and SOS Band. Lakeside's "Fantastic Voyage" carries audiences along a beat-bumping odyssey that Coolio famously sampled in the '90s, and SOS Band's hit "Take Your Time" stresses prudence when courting a partner and building a house of cards.
