George Clinton took the stage this past week on July 22nd at Englewood, New Jersey’s BergenPAC center. “This is a Homecoming,” said the hype man for George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, as the day marked his 68th birthday.
Although he was born in North Carolina, New Jersey is a place George calls home, having lived and formed the band Parliament in Plainfield. Clinton also lived and rehearsed in Jersey’s capitol city of Newark, as well as the surrounding area, way back in the day. The Museum Of UnCut Funk had the fortune to wish the Godfather of FUNK a Happy Birthday and shake the living legends hand.
Parliament Funkadelic did a three hour set, rendering the hits “Knee Deep,” “Up for the Down Stroke,” “Flashlight,” “Tear the Roof Off the Sucker,” and many more. Live in Bridgeport, Connecticut tonight (7/24), George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic land in Dublin, Ireland on July 31st.
