      Maceo Parker / George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic

      “Parliament and Funkadelic were 30 years ahead of their time.” – Ice Cube for Rolling Stone

      We open the season with a double-bill featuring two North Carolina natives whose names have become synonymous with funk.

      It’s hard to tell which came first, Maceo Parker or the funk. Maceo got his start with James Brown, and for over 20 years he has been building a new funk empire, fresh and stylistically diverse. In his blistering solo career, he navigates deftly between Brown’s 1960s soul and George Clinton’s 1970s freaky funk, while also exploring mellow jazz and hip-hop.

      George Clinton is one of the foremost innovators of funk music. The mastermind behind Parliament Funkadelic (P-Funk), Clinton was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 with 15 other band members. P-Funk has captured 40 top R&B singles, including “One Nation Under a Groove” and “Aqua Boogie,” and their music has been sampled on albums by OutKast, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and many others.
