FRIENDS JOINING FORCES for FUNK!!!!! a TRIBUTE to DC's RISING JAM SCENE!!w/The DMV's FUNKIEST CHARACTERS!!HEAVY-FUNK/FUSION/DANCE/PARTY!!!!F 1/11Bob Marley Workshop7pm doors, 8pm show180 cap$10"The Bob Marley Workshop celebrates the rich legacy of Bob Marley as a musician, political activist, and spiritual leader. The genesis of the workshop was the 2016 presidential election, which made reggae, and Bob Marleys music in particular, particularly relevant again for a DC-area group of friends and veteran musicians. The workshop name is inspired by the Jazz Workshop convened in the 1960s by Charles Mingus, and reflects an understanding that music making is, essentially and always, a work in progress. Second, since the group is comprised of globally rich white suburban Americans, the project to approach Bob Marleys music is fraught with issues of cultural appropriation, and the workshop idea helps keep us humble and respectful. Similarly, playing reggae music well seems to demand that egos are checked at the door. So again, the workshop idea helps remind us of the work that we have in front of us, every day, to put the communitys goals ahead of our own individual ambitions, and to not take ourselves too seriously. The sounds are kickin, the grooves are deep, and Jah love is everlasting!"
