Calling All Lovers of Funk Music: Beginning at 9:00p.m., BronzeLens will fill the Rich Auditorium at the Woodruff Arts Center, 1280 Peachtree Street, where we will present "Finding the Funk," directed by noted author and filmmaker Nelson George. It is is a look at Funk's past, present and its enduring influence on contemporary music.
Starting with Funk's roots in Jazz and the James Brown bands of the '60s we travel to the Bay Area to celebrate Sly & the Family Stone, then to Dayton, the birthplace of so many of Funk's originators, then Detroit where from the ashes of Motown, P-Funk's Mothership arose, and onto LA wherea new crop of musicians are creating their own Funk history. On our journey into Funk, we talk to legends Sly Stone, Bootsy, George Clinton, Nona Hendrix, Maceo Parker, Bernie Worrell, and Steve Arrington and their descendants Mike D, D'Angelo, Sheila E, Shock G and Stuart Matthewman.
