Since we talking about the funk I got to show the rest of the pictures I got. None are from New Orleans but they are the foundation of funk.

Fred Wesley-trombone player/band leader for James Brown from "Say it Loud" through the mid 70's off and on, the J.B.'s who also featured Bootsy Collins, Parliament and lots of his solo stuff. He came to Champaign and played with his latest band Abraham Inc, and then came to jam at a local club with local funk band Beat Kitchen, which is where these photos are from. I got to hang out with him all night, got pictures with him and all that good stuff.

This is sax legend Maceo Parker, the original band leader for James Brown when he started the funk, he also went on play Parliament when they started up a horn section at the same time Fred Wesley did, plus he did his own stuff with Maceo and the Macks, Prince and **** loads of other stuff

Here's a video of some of my favorite Maceo song
