Some of the most iconic music in the history of the 20th Century came out of the P-Funk Collective, with Dawn Silva, Jeanette Washington-Perkins and Brides of Funkenstein leading the charge, selling millions of records and entertaining countless funkateers worldwide.
All about the Brides Of Funkenstein!
The Brides of Funkenstein came together in the heyday of the seminal funk group Parliament-Funkadelic, providing vocals for the legendary Guitarist Eddie Hazel‘s Album, Game, Dames and Guitar Thangs and P-Funk leader George Clintonproduced their debut album Funk Or Walk, selling more than 300,000 copies in the first week after its release, with the single “Disco To Go” certified gold in the USA.
The Brides’ second album Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy was called one of the top 50 coolest albums of all time by Rolling Stone and got the ladies a “Best Female Award” from Cashbox… between their work as The Brides and as part of the P-Funk Collective, they’re truly the innovators of Femininity-FUNK. And they did back-up vocals on many, many funk classics.
In 2015, Dawn and Jeanette are going to take it to the stage with a world tour, a CD and DVD of all-new material that will feature contributions from their legendary funky friends like Junie Morrison and Bernie Worell and much, much more.
