From Brooklyn Bridge Park:
One of the original architects of funk, Maceo Parker’s gritty sax lines have graced some of the best party music in history in his collaborations with James Brown, Parliament-Funkadelic, Bootsy Collins, and Prince – whose surprise appearance with Maceo at Celebrate Brooklyn in 2006 is legendary. Maceo kicks off this new series with the tightest funk orchestra on earth, irresistible dance grooves, and the finest free show in town. Acclaimed DJ and producer, DJ Spinna has worked with an array of talents from Guru of Gangstarr to Mos Def. Spinning the best in old school funk to futuristic electro, he is on a mission to get you to dance.
Full summer line-up for Celebrate Brooklyn! at the Prospect Park Bandshell will be announced at this show!
