Bootsy Stretches Out His Funky Rubber Band On Late Night TV

Bootsy blew the doors off the hinges with a massively funky performance of his hit "Stretchin' Out (In a Rubber Band)" on the late night television show Night Music back in 1989. The funkster was joined by sax legend David Sanborn and the late, great guitarist Hiram Bullock for the funk session. P-Funk veteran Gary"Mudbone" Cooper and powerhouse duo Pretty Fat provided backup vocals. Late night television rarely gets this funky. You can damn near smell the funk up on the stage. The premise of the short-lived Night Music (1988-1990) was to bring together a diverse selection of musicians from different genres and have them find common ground musically. Shame the show didn't have a longer run.
