Featuring Eric McFadden with special guest Jerry Joseph, Claude Coleman Jr (drums, Ween), Bobby Perkins (bass, Carolyn Wonderland), Skerik, and Queen Delphine

Punk rock and Funk music both were revolutionary forms when they came to be. Both were reactions to societal conditions though the expressions were quite different. Both were music of the people and took a stance against status quo and stood for civil justice, equality and freedom of expression. Such artists as The Clash, the Sex Pistols, Sly Stone, George Clinton and Funkadelic changed the musical landscape, popular culture and the world forever. Join Eric McFadden and friends as they straddle the two genres and bring them together in what promises to be a raucous (and funky) good time!
