Asheville, NC – The funk pioneers George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic have recently come out of retirement to set out and hit the road for a stretch of summer tour dates in the United States. The ‘One Nation Under A Groove Tour’ rolled into the Salvage Station for one of those stops and with it brought a magically funktastic evening with an awesome fusion of friends to include The Pimps of Joytime, Blu Eye Extinction, The Motet, and Dopapod.
With a career spanning over 50 years and echoes back to Parliament’s studio albums Mothership Connection (1975) and The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein (1976), the now 81 year old Godfather of Funk can still take command the stage and launch the audience into a different world. Parliament Funkadelic may do much of the heavy lifting these days, but the magic is in the family of funk. The band sounds incredible, bringing to attention some of the greatest hits while giving time and space for wonderful jams, including a breakdown of Lil’ John‘s “Get Low”.
The Prime Minister of Funk has torn down cultural barriers, blurred genre lines and been an inspiration for countless artists and fans alike. George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic also received the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019 for their musical impact.
One Nation Under A Groove Tour kicked off mid-June and will extend through August. VISIT HERE for schedule and tickets.
