Dig that funky music

Lots of good music that just gets your feet tapping

Sly and the Family Stone - excellent for soul, funk, and psychedelic music, I defy anyone not to get up and boogie

Parliament-Funkadelic a collective headed by George Clinton

The Funk Brothers - a group formed of Motown session musicians ( backed tracks such as "My Girl" and " I heard it through the Grapevine")

Bootsy Collins played with James Brown and Parliament-Funkadelic (see above). A charismatic bespectacled figure

Prince both his Mum and Dad were Jazz Musicians (his fathers' stage name was Prince Rogers - get it!)

Rufus feat. Chaka Khan Oh I did have the hots for Chaka Khan in those days - the live shows were brilliant!

Earth, Wind & Fire have won six Grammys and always hot - cross-genre

Eric Burdon & War - been following him since the Animals

Brides of Funkenstein
