George Clinton TicketsKnown as "Dr. Funkenstein" and "the Prime Minister of Funk," George Clinton is a seminal figure in the genesis and evolution of funk music. Founder and leader of equally seminal funk bands Parliament and Funkadelic (also known as P-Funk,) George Clinton has been entertaining fans for over six decades, and continues to consistently tour and perform for adoring fans the world over. George Clinton's music is a funk-fueled mix of soul, psychedelic rock and funk subgenres like electro-funk and psychedelic funk. George Clinton's sound features diverse influences from disparate sources like science fiction, surrealism, humor, wild fashion and psychedelic culture. Many of George Clinton's albums and songs follow the exploits of a recurring group of characters and concepts collectively referred to as the P-Funk mythology or "funkology."
From Outhouse to ParliamentBorn in an outhouse in rural North Carolina, the oldest of nine, George Clinton got his start in music in 1955 singing in a doo-wop group named The Parliaments. He performed for years in small venues like clubs, bars and high schools while working as a hairdresser. When record industry wrangling caused him to cease using the name The Parliaments, Clinton reinvented The Parliaments' backup, The Funkadelics, as its own act, renamed Funkadelic. Through multiple incarnations of both Parliament and Funkadelic, Clinton worked with over 50 musicians, which grew to be called the P-Funk Mob. George Clinton was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1977.
