George Clinton announces planned retirement from P-Funk May of 2019



This has been coming a long time,” he states. “Anyone who has been to the shows over the past couple of years have noticed that I’ve been out front less and less. The shows have been great!”  Truth be told it’s never really been about me,” he continues. “It’s always been about the music and the band. That’s the real P-Funk legacy. They’ll still be funkin long after I stop.”


George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic are now accepting offers for the 2019 edition of P-FUNK’s annual “Mardi Gras Madness” tour (Jan – March 2019).  Also plans are under way for the “One Nation Under a Groove” tour, which will be a once-in-a-lifetime sendoff for the group’s legendary founder and frontman, celebrating his legacy as a Grammy winning Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer and Pop music icon.   Parliament Funkadelic will continue to tour into the future after May 2019.

George Clinton & Parliment Funkadelic

The Godfather of Funk

Think of George Clinton and you’ll likely conjure an image of a crazy black man with rainbow dreads and garb befitting a galactic shaman literally barking at phat bottomed girls with a sub-atomic “WOOF!” This lovable nutcase is the legendary and internationally renowned grandfather of funk and the founder of the Parliament-Funkadelic MOB, taking the sonic innovations of James Brown and Sly Stone to both outer space AND Neptune while selling millions of records and concert tickets in the process. Quiet as its kept, however, George Clinton’s initial approach to the ladies was crooning (when he wasn’t cutting hair) as the leader of a standup vocal group he formed in `55 called The Parliaments, emulating the doo wop and love songs that were popular when he was in diapers… [read more]
