Additional Information

Two of New Orleans' favorites in funk team together to pay tribute to Chuck
Brown, the creator and "Godfather" of Go-Go, Washington D.C.'s indigenous
brand of funk and groove-based music. Brown, who passed away on May 16 at
age 75, and his go-go sound have been much loved in New Orleans since he
introduced the world to go-go with his 1978 hit "Bustin Loose." The
Brass-a-Holics recently performed their "New Orleans Celebration of the Life
and Legacy of Chuck Brown" at the DC Jazz Festival, joined by members of
Chuck's band. DJ Soul Sister, a long-time cheerleader for D.C. go-go music,
can take claim to having been the only local artist to have opened for him,
as she did in 2007 and 2009 - two of the three of Brown's only New Orleans
appearances since first performing here in 1979 to promote "Bustin' Loose."
