Two tribute bands helping audiences relive the old days in style, one giant of funk, and a new band applying a modern spin to a beloved subgenre. Those are the highlights of the coming 30 days in Asheville live music, a calendar featuring a heady mix of local, regional and international talent. Event: George Clinton
There’s more to George Clinton than many fans realize. To most of the listening public, the Kannapolis, N.C.-born musician is the voice and face of Parliament-Funkadelic. A leading light of the music scene, Clinton brought a sensibility that – much like Frank Zappa, to whom he is often compared – combined humor with advanced musicality.
