George Clinton – 2016
George Clinton has been considered by many as an innovator and also the “Godfather Of Funk” through his performances, collaborations and recordings. He was born in 1941 and is an American songwriter, singer and producer who collaborated with P-Funk, which was an evolution of the groups Parliament and Funkadelic. He attended and performed on the first day of the Soul’d Out Music Festival in Portland, Oregon on April 13th, 2016 at The Crystal Ballroom. The Crystal Ballroom is well known as a venue with a “bouncy” floor which can make a person feel the vibrance and energy of the room. Clinton also has announced over 20 tour dates in the U.S. through August 2016. The Funkadelic record First Ya Gotta Shake the Gate was released in 2014 with George Clinton as a producer, writer and collaborator.
