 Founding father of funk Bootsy Collins funks up The Joy Theater during Jazz Fest

“Bootsy sets about waking up a new generation to funk's heritage.”-BBC Music


Bootsy Collins is a founding father of funk. Collins rose to fame in the early 1970’s with James Brown, and played with Parliament-Funkadelic from 1972 until the early 1980s. Collins recorded hits like “Get Up (I feel like being a) Sex Machine” and “Super Bad” with James Brown, and appeared on most of Funkadelic and all of Parliament's albums (with the exception ofOsmium) through the early 1980s, garnering several songwriting credits as well. The 1990’s saw Bootsy collaborating with Dee-lite on the smash hit “Groove Is In The Heart”, as well as collaborating with bluegrass legends Del McCoury, Doc Watson and Mac Wiseman to form the GrooveGrass Boyz. Bootsy has stayed in the limelight during the 21st century, as proven by his collaboration with Talib Kweli and his appearance as a character in Grand Theft Auto V.

Folks looking to get down late night during Jazz Fest will be floored by the founding father of funk as his bass rattles the walls of The Joy.
