GEORGE CLINTON & PARLIAMENT/FUNKADELIC AT THE INTIMATE FILLMORE MIAMI BEACH

Submitted by on – No Comment

The “Ultimate Kings of Funk” George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic.roll into the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater Sunday, March 5th, 2017 / 8PM to rock your world.  The Bobby Lee Rodgers Trio is scheduled to open the show.  Tickets are on sale NOW!

Recording both as Parliament and FunkadelicGeorge Clintonrevolutionized R&B during the ’70s, twisting soul music into funk by adding influences from several late-’60s acid heroes: Jimi HendrixFrank Zappa, and Sly Stone.  Inspired by Motown‘s assembly line of sound, George Clinton gradually put together a collective of over 50 musicians and recorded the ensemble during the ’70s both as Parliament and Funkadelic. While Funkadelic pursued band-format psychedelic rock,Parliament engaged in a funk free-for-all, blending influences from the godfathers (James Brown and Sly Stone) with freaky costumes and themes inspired by ’60s acid culture and science fiction. . TheParliament/Funkadelic machine ruled black music during the ’70s, capturing over 40 R&B hit singles (including three number ones) and recording three platinum albums.  In reviewing Clinton’s illustrious career and success as a producer / writer/ performer, perhaps his greatest achievement stemmed from his relentless dedication to funk as a musical form. Funk as a musical style had been around for what seems like forever, deeply rooted in the music traditions of New Orleans and the Blues of the Deep South. Clinton took Funk to new heights, blending elements of Jazz, Rock, Pop, Classical and even Gospel into his productions, eventually developing a unique and easily identifiable style affectionately called “Pfunk.” Clinton’s inspiration, dedication and determination resulted in the elevation of “funk” music to complete recognition and acceptance as a true genre in and of itself.
