The Bernie Worrell Orchestra Performing at Brooklyn Bowl

The Bernie Worrell Orchestra will be playing at Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, New York on March 23. At the show, the funk icon and his band will play some P-Funk classics, originals from his solo albums, as well as covers of some jazz standards. The Bernie Worrell Orchestra is composed of two guitarists, two drummers, a bassist,  a percussionist, and a three-piece horn section. The show will include special guest appearances by the Chapin Sisters, Andre Lassalle (of SociaLybrium), Jimmy Destri (of Blondie) and the Matt O'Ree Band. The tickets are only $8. Here's a link to get ticket, time and location info about the show.

The Bernie Worrell Orchestra will also be playing dates in Providence, RI (March 30), Fairfield, CT (April 1) and Blairstown Theater, NJ (April 13). And on June 23, the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and his band will headline the Fourth Annual "Local & Legend Music Festival" at Unionville Vineyards, Ringoes, NJ on June 23.

And in early June of last year, Worrell released a jazz album titled Bernie Worrell: Standards. On the album,Worrell puts his singular keyboard wizardry on jazz classics such as "Take the "A" Train," "Watermelon Man," and "Take Five." It is the P-Funker's eighth solo album.
