Fatback - thanks a million for that link to the article! I also checked out your site - good stuff all around. If I find myself back in D.C. anytime soon I'll look you guys up.

Dylan - here is a Washington Post article from earlier this year on the current state of Trouble Funk - Trouble Funk's Big Tony on Keeping His Band's Identity. Thanks again for reppin' DC! Come down anytime for a guest spot on our DJ night. More @

To Fatback DJ: I was originally planning on playing both Back Yard and Junk Yard but didn't have time to fit everything in! Good call on "Sardines"! I knew Big Tony was still making appearances but thought Trouble Funk was no longer playing as a unit. That's a band I'd love to catch live! To Werner: the "Percussion Solos" is from Trouble Funk's "Say What! - Live In London" album. I think it was only ever released on vinyl but I could be wrong...

Great stuff, I remember Kurtis Blow using go-go percussion sounds back in the day. I push your site and show to anyone I know that likes funk.

trouble funk - percussion solos
completely blew me away! Looked it up, couldn't find it even on youtube. Where do you get this stuff?

Nice go-go set! If I could add one more it would be SARDINES (and pork and beans!) by Junkyard. Also - a correction - Trouble Funk is still around and making special appearances. We DJed a show with Big Tony and crew last year.

Man this is an awesome show. I love it when you play hip hop and rap tracks then put the original song it was mixed from.

Huck-a-bucks! so awesome. Way to rep DC! Now you need to jam some Northeast Groovers and you'll be set with the best go go ;)
