2014 FUNK FEST on the Beach @24th Street

  • Aug 23, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

http://www.beachstreetusa.com/festivals/funkfest This is in conjunction with another group in Hampton. But we're all Family!

FunkFest is the heart and soul of this weekend event, featuring music generated over the years by influential legends such as James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone, George Clinton, and The Ohio Players. Funk is an American musical style that originated in the mid-to late-1960’s when African-American musicians blended soul music, soulful jazz, and R&B into a rhythmic, danceable new form of music. Funk brings a strong rhythmic groove of electric bass and drums to the foreground. Funk music was a major influence on the development of 1970’s disco music, and has even impacted house music and hip-hop. FunkFest will take place on a stage on the beach at 24th Street.

Food, merchandise, and dance contests all contribute to a festive, “funky” vibe!
