Dazz Band, Gap Band & Other R&B Faves at Funk Fest
Funk is like fine wine: it just gets better —and funkier! — with age. And this sure-to-be-fun concert at Phoenix’s Celebrity Theatre is definitely gonna bring the funk with performances by old school funk legends Dazz Band, The Gap Band and Rose Royce. As the name suggests, Dazz Band was founded on the visionary concept of “danceable jazz,” but in the ‘80s quickly established itself as something much stickier — a gritty, groove-oriented funk outfit with a knack for letting it whip. They’re joined by funky R&B legends The Gap Band, who had four platinum albums and four No. 1 singles, with classics including “Outstanding” and “You Dropped a Bomb on Me." And Rose Royce will take you to the “Car Wash,” while special guest The Soul Power Band will keep the funky hits coming all night long.
