7/29/10: Supreme Funk Palace

This week the Fuzz Factory was completely transformed into the Funk Factory.  No, scratch that.  It was completely transformed into the Supreme Funk Palace!  For three straight hours, this place was the funkiest, grooviest, most soulful spot in the world.

This show focused on old school funk soul classics, primarily from 1965-1975.  This was the golden age of funk when the rockin’ groove ruled above all else.  This was also before synthesizers started to replace the rhythm guitar and horn section which led to the watered down funk and soul of the disco era.  This Supreme Funk Palace also focused on real rarities with only a few big hits thrown in along the way

One programming note. There will be no Fuzz Factory this coming Thursday, 8/5/10.  I will be in Chicago visiting friends and family.  However, the Fuzz Factory will be back in business as usual the following week 8/12/10, 8-10 pm (EST).

We want the funk, give up the funk.
