Join us for the last Summerfest of the season! Come out to Cottonwood Corners for this free event. Rock out to live music performed by national headliner George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic. Enjoy exploring the different crafts offered by local artisans and bring the kids for a day filled with food, fun, and great activities. There will also be a selection of some of Albuquerque’s local food vendors, as well as a Microbrew Garden.
A Bit About the Band
Recording both as Parliament and Funkadelic, George Clinton revolutionized R&B during the ’70s, twisting soul music into funk by adding influences from several late-’60s acid heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, and Sly Stone. The Parliament/Funkadelic machine ruled black music during the ’70s, capturing over 40 R&B hit singles (including three number ones) and recording three platinum albums.
