George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic
bring the funk, the whole funk and nothing but the
House of Blues
at Mandalay Bay on Saturday, March 31 at 8:30 p.m. Recording as both
Parliament and Funkadelic, George Clinton
revolutionized R&B during the ’70s, twisting soul music into funk by
adding influences from several late ’60s heroes like Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, and Sly Stone. While Funkadelic pursued band-format psychedelic rock,
Parliament engaged in a funk free-for-all, blending influences from the
godfathers with freaky costumes and themes inspired by ’60s acid culture and
science fiction. From its 1970 inception until Clinton’s dissolving of
Parliament in 1980, Clinton hit the R&B Top Ten several times but truly
excelled in two other areas: large-selling, effective album statements and the
most dazzling, extravagant live shows.
The ’90s saw the rise of funk-
inspired rap and rock that reestablished the status of Clinton & Co. as
one of the most important forces in the recent history of black music.
Clinton’s music became the soundtrack for the rap movement as artists from MC
Hammer, to LL Cool J to Snoop Doggy Dogg heavily
relied on the funk as the foundation of their recordings. Even more recently,
George Clinton featured in and helped produce Kendrick Lamar’s Grammy Award
winning album To Pimp a
Butterfly. The blend of elements from Jazz, Rock, Blues,
Pop, Classical and even Gospel in his productions eventually developed a
unique and easily identifiable style affectionately called “Pfunk.” Clinton’s inspiration, dedication and
determination resulted in the elevation of “funk” music to complete
recognition and acceptance as a true genre in and of itself and Clinton’s
Parliament/Funkadelic induction into the Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
