The personnel for the Bernie Worrell & the WOO Warriors:
At 12:05am, the WOO Warriors started with a funky interlude, which featured Gabe Gonzalez on some tight-ass drumbeats (Detroit must have been smiling that night), some funky bass riffs by the fabulous Donna McPherson, dope-ass keyboard riffs by Mr. Gregg "Daffy Duck" Fitz, and some off-the-wall guitar riffs by Flash!! Bernie Worrell came out and the ensemble went into "Gamin' on Ya"......Bernie was in rare form on his funky synthesizers...... well, disregarding all of the technical problems. I could not understand what the hell was goin' on......the sound had to be adjusted CONSTANTLY throughout the show! "Me and My Folks" followed, with Sonic Voce playing the cowbell. "Super Stupid" was super-hot, with Flash once again gettin' off on some nasty, hard-rock guitar riffing!!! "Supergroovalisticprosifunkstication" was followed, by a snippet of "One Nation Under a Groove". Gabe Gonzalez went into a very brief, heavy drum breakdown after the last verse of "Baby, I Owe You Something Good"! I didn't know at the time (or I wasn't 100% sure) that I was standing next to rapper extraordinaire Mos Def.....until, Bernie called him onstage!! Mos Def did Jimi Hendrix's song "Who Knows?"......this brother was singing and rapping.....just throwing his own raps into the song!! That wonderful performance was followed by "Standing on the Verge of Gettin' It On" and "Up For the Down Stroke".
