Both FUNK AND SOUL are feel-good genres of music that rose to prominence in 1950s and 1960s America. Growing out of gospel and R&B, soul emphasized funky rhythms, tense and virtuous vocals, hand claps, and call-and response band interaction. And right behind it came rhythmic and danceable funk that took the emphasis off melody and harmony, bringing the rhythm section to the front in complex, interlocking rhythms.

The artists that dominate these genres composed some of the most memorable and fun songs of the 20th Century, and now you can play them all Summer long! Join funk and soul legends James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Sly & the Family Stone, Otis Redding, Parliament, Wilson Pickett,Earth, Wind & Fire, and many more during this Thursday night party.

This show can challenge the skill set of any developing musician. With intricate rhythms all over the board, enthusiastic and iconic vocals to reproduce, and tight band arrangements to hone, this is a project that will let any adult have a blast for the Summer season.
