FUNK Takes over the Nation’s Capitol
The Funk Parade Countdown on LiveMusicDaily begins today. Next weekend DC FUNK will be taking over U Street. We are proud to present to you the first installment of our series “Countdown to the Funk Parade”. Throughout this week & leading up to the event next week you will be getting in-depth coverage of the event so you can make the most of the parade. Till then enjoy this Funk Parade Mix that Q-Dup just released.
Funk Parade was begun by two people who love Washington, DC, live music, and the U Street neighborhood: Justin Rood, a lifelong DC resident, and Chris Naoum, whose organization Listen Local First has helped hundreds of musicians find audiences and gigs throughout the Washington area.
The project has since been embraced by dozens of local businesses, neighborhood groups, community leaders, musicians and artists, who have pledged their support to the event. They hope you will join them and the mighty Funk Parade!
