The mothership has landed! Funk’s greatest innovator, the one and only George Clinton & P-Funk, live at The Ritz!
George Clinton, the Godfather of Funk, is without doubt one of planet earth’s most influential musical innovators, having inspired the likes of Prince, Outkast, Bootsy Collins, and Afrika Bambaataa; mentored Public Enemy, Eric B & Rakim and provided much of De La Soul and Snoop Dogg’s musical education. He is the single most sampled artist in music history with his signature grooves crossing all boundaries, he has been showing the world what the funk is for fifty years and his career mirrors musical trends from doo-wop to hip hop, funk, soul & rock.
Clinton and his touring ensemble of singers, dancers, circus clowns, roller girls, virtuoso musicians and galactic space travellers deliver a live performance that is so energised and visually spectacular that they’re often mistaken for interstellar beings from another galaxy.
“I can’t wait to grow this P-Funk thang all over again,” George says “We got four generations of fans out there who keep bugging me to get these live shows out there, and now's the time to show the world what the funk is all about."
