Funkin' around

This Friday a special funkin treat for you all at O'Neals. The Fonksquish Mob will be playing for free with Billy Bass Nelson. Billy Bass is the man responsible for much of the essentail sound of George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic. His grooves and basslines built the backbone for George Clinton and the Parliaments before there was a Funkadelic. Billy went on to play for the Commodores, Temptations, Lionel Richie, Smokey Robinson and more only to rejoin George Clinton in the mid nineties. Funk music is such an important essence of much of the music we feature on here, that this is a can't miss show.

Check out the tracks below to hear a taste of the fine musical selections this Friday.
