Rockefeller Park
New York, NY


ne of the most influential names in R&B and funk music, George Clinton is the leader of Parliament/Funkadelic (or P-Funk), a collective of wildly talented musicians who revolutionized soul music in the 70s by incorporating influences from Hendrix, Zappa, and Sly.  George and P-Funk have been rocking steady for more than 50 years with hit songs like “Flash Light,” “Mothership Connection,” and “Chocolate City.” In 1997, George Clinton and 15 other members of the group became the largest band yet inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, proving that they are epic in both size and sound.  Clinton has been a particular influence on Prince, and recorded several albums for his Paisley Park record label. Come down to Rockefeller Park and join One Nation Under A Groove, getting down just for the funk of it.
