NAPPYHEAD FUNK ARMY
At Kennedy Park - Hempstead, NY (Long Island)
Nappyhead Funk Army got their funk on, this
time in a different way....some OUTDOOR FUNK, funking with the locals at Kennedy
Park in Hempstead, NY. The show was scheduled at 7:00pm, but the band didn't
start until 7:20pm.
army started with an arousing intro followed by the patriotic "Funk Army
Mesh", with the vocalists #9, Red Hot, Eric-Jay and newcomer Angela Workman
(from NYC's R&B/funk band Rhythm Republik) stepping in time to the marching
beat of the drummer, The Technician!! "Funk Infection Y2K+2" was
infectious, but better was the intergalactic synth wizardry of the Key Master
himself, Prez (or Da Funky PREZident, as I call him)!! "Tear The Roof Off
the Sucka" was a great workout for those fans who dug the old-time P-Funk
shit! "Red Hot Momma" was hardcore and "Sexy Mutha" had to
be censored to avoid the corruption of minors in the park!! ("You sexy
mutha-- ") "Jungle Boogie" was full of heavy-duty,
rocking keyboard riffs by The Pearl! The Pearl was in rare form on "Dirty Vamp", as he became a
lethal madman, pounding out stankalicious, hardcore synthesized riffs while
thrashing about behind his equipment!! Oh, the lead guitar line by Andre
Lassalle was cool, too!
"Every Dog Has Its Day" featured an eternally stinking funk bass
workout by The General, some strong keyboard riffs & some good rhythm
guitar riffs by Groovalicious! "Bottoms Up" featured Eric-Jay's rap,
while "Cosmic Slop" featured a good drum intro and some top-notch
vocals by Red Hot! The performance of "Funkemiftheycan'ttakeajoke"
(the show's closer) sounded like the last two shows, except some
fantastic, strong lead vocals were provided by Angela (towards the end of the
song)! About 20 fans were onstage jamming with the Nappyhead Funk Army,
as the show ended at 9:00pm.
