Nona Hendryx & The Nasty Gals
8:00 pm – 9:00 pm EDT/GMT-4
Revolutionary art-rock, new-wave goddess Nona Hendryx (aka ‘Mama Funk’), the original ‘Mother of Funk’ and early proponent of Afrofuturism, pays tribute to the legendary Betty Davis in a musical celebration featuring a band of (mostly) women funk rockers performing Betty’s 1975 Nasty Gal album and more. Betty’s trailblazing career —an influencer ahead of her time— bridged the old guard to the avant-garde, leaving behind a legacy that still reverberates in music today. Come funk with us!
Featuring Felicia Collins (guitar), Camille Gainer-Jones (drums), Divinity Roxx (bass), LaFrae Sci (electronics), Kiki Hawkins and Asa Lovechild (vocals), two guys: Etienne Stadwijk and ‘Big Mouth’ Keith Fluitt.
