Morris Day & The Time Bring Funk To LA
Nine of the grooviest artists and groups in old school funk and soul return to show the younger generations just exactly how they did it in their day! For one special evening only, iconic musical movers and shakers of the 70s and 80s Morris Day & The Time, Cameo, SOS Band, The Dazz Band, Maxi & Cheri of the Mary Jane Girls, Zapp, The Barkay's and The Original Lakeside convene at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater for 'Funk n LA', bringing their catalogue of genre-defining hits along for the smooth and soulful ride.
Whilst they were positioned as Prince's rivals in1984 American rock musical Purple Rain, Minneapolis natives Morris Day & The Time were actually his proteges. Channeling their mentor's sensual charisma and swagger, the outfit ruled the dance charts of the mid 80s and early 90s with their heady blend of funk, RnB and rock and roll, culminating in dance-floor filling hits like Jungle Love and Jerk Out.
