If you were at the Con Funk Shun concert at Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club, you got more than your money’s worth that night! All I can say is WOWWWWW!!!! The house was packed and the only thing you felt before the show began is, I’M READY TO REMEMBER THE FUN I HAD IN BACK IN THE DAY!!!
These guys have not lost A BEAT…. Their voices sound great (especially Felton Pilate & Michael Cooper), they look great and the band is PHENOMENAL. Con Funk Shun, in no uncertain terms, let the house know that they were giving everyone the full show TONIGHT so get ready for the ride, and what a RIDE IT WAS. I’m still sailing! They sang everything from “Love’s Train” to “Straight from the Heart” to my favorite “Baby I’m Hooked.” The audience were on their feet dancing and singing along to all their favorite hits!
They had the moves, the horns, and the Energy! I definitely give this show, 5 thumbs up and wouldn’t have a problem with seeing Con Funk Shun over and over again. Not sure how they do it, but they certainly did the DA** THING!
Next time they’re in the DMV, make sure you check them out, but get ready for the time of your life. Make sure you tell them, JV Jones sent you.
