Sit back, put one up and soak it all in.
The time has finally come loyal funkateers! Nelson George‘s quintessential Finding The Funk documentary is set to premiere tonight on VH1! The doc will be narrated by our very own general ?uestlove and feature words from D’Angelo, George Clinton, Sly Stone, Bootsy Collins, Nile Rodgers and scholar Michael Eric Dyson, amongst numerous other visionaries and performers who come through to help us navigate through the tangled bloodlines of musicians and showmen which have defined the lineage. After what seems like years of anticipation since last year’s SXSW screening and various trailers, teasers and kickstarters we’ve been gifted for the project, it’s finally funk’s time to shine (or glow) in the comfort of your TV room. So check out the latest, official trailer to Nelson George’s Finding The Funk below and tune into VH1 tonight at 10pm to see what all the funk is about.
