What is it good for? -- Bringing the Funk!

Hot on the heels of them being nominated for induction into the 2009 Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame, we have decided to pay tribute to one of the great California Funk institutions - WAR! You may not realize it, but you know this band - Low Rider, Spill the Wine, Why Can't We Be Friends?, and Cisco Kid are only a few of the hits that gave this band 3 top ten albums!

The show will feature incredible grooves drawing influences from Funk, R&B, Latin, and Rock in a unique style that characterized California in the late 60s and early 70s - so bring your dancin' shoes! Not only that, but due to their lyrics, they are often called "The Bob Dylans of Funk" by fans of sarcasm everywhere! We have a great lineup of guests on this one - horns, multiple percussionists, singers, CMo on the Harp - and Matt Spiegel returns from being on assignment in LA and joins Tributo Chicago!

There will only be ONE SHOW (7:30) because this band lends itself to extended jamming, but we'll add in a specal bonus - we'll have a special set of "The Big 3" (that's Chris, Curt, and Matt) doing acoustic renditions of many of your favorites from shows past to open up the night. Should be a blast!

Spring has sprung - so come dancin'!
