George Clinton And P-Funk To Perform At The Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival 2012

George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic are heading overseas to the UK next month to perform at the 3rd annual Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival. George and the P-Funk crew will be performing on Friday June 29th at Moseley Park, Birmingham, England. The band will return to Moseley Park for another performance on Sunday July 1st. 

The Mostly Jazz Festival (now called Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival) made its debut in 2010. The impetus behind the festival was to celebrate "the dynamic grooves, innovation and excitement of the modern jazz movement." It was designed to showcase the diversity of contemporary jazz in all its different forms: jazz-fusion, avant-garde, free and modern jazz, song-based jazz, etc. Another goal of the festival was to recognize jazz's influence on other important music genres, such as Latin, funk and soul.

The three-day festival will be held on June 29-30 and July 1st. In addition to Uncle Jam and P-Funk, some of the other bands and artists scheduled to perform at the festival include Fred Wesley & The New J.B.'s, The Family Stone, Miles Levin Quintet, Ghostpoet, Soweto Kinch and Odyssey. Sounds like it's going to be a blast. For more festival info, go to their website.
