The ORIGINAL P - PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC is a 12 piece band featuring original, founding members of Parliament/Funkadelic – Clarence Fuzzy Haskins and Shady Grady Thomas. From the street corners of Plainfield, N.J. and the Motown boom of Detroit in the early sixties, to the arenas and stadiums in the seventies, to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in the late nineties, its been a long, strange trip for Fuzzy and Grady. Both founding members were recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for their work with the Parliaments and Parliament/Funkadelic. When they formed Parliament/Funkadelic in 1970, Fuzzy and Grady had already been performing and recording for over a decade in the Parliaments, a doo-wop, R&B and Soul band. Throughout the sixties they released a series of doo-wop singles for such labels as ABC and Motown. In 1967 the Parliaments reached the top 20 on Billboard charts with their single (I wanna) Testify. The changes in the social and musical climate of the sixties, as well as a brief unrewarding stint as vocalists for Motown brought about the formation of Parliament/Funkadelic. The newly formed Parliament/Funkadelic began cutting a series of records which cut a flaming path into the hearts and minds of an entire generation. You can hear Fuzzy and Grady on the original recordings of such Parliament/Funkadelic hits as Flashlight, Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof Off the Sucker), Standing On the Verge Of Getting It On and Up For the Down Stroke, and on such classic P/Funk albums as “Free Your Mind And Your Ass Will Follow, Cosmic Slop, Mothership Connection (Star Child) and many more. Fuzzy and Grady began their own solo projects shortly before Parliament/Funkadelic was disbanded in the late seventies. In the mid-nineties they decided to create a reunion project ORIGINAL P -PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC, along with the late Ray Stingray Davis. (Ray’s son Derrick plays base carrying on his fathers tradition. After a successful recording venture, the ORIGINAL P - PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC decided it was time to take the show on the road. This act gives us a chance to perform these songs the way they were meant to be heard, with solid arrangements and clear vocal harmonies. We were involved in the creation of these songs and they are our children. They’re why we were inducted into the Rock & Roll hall of fame. When asked why it was time for this project, Fuzzy said, Its time to put the fun back in funk! Now ORIGINAL P - PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC is back on tour, playing to sold out venues around the world. Get ready to TEAR THE ROOF OFF THE SUCKA!!
