Trouble Funk Birthday Bash


Editorial Review

The go-go grooves were deep at U Street's Masonic Temple on May 14. It was a birthday party for Big Tony Fisher, the vocalist and bassist who's been giving Trouble Funk its low end since the 1970s, and the building was packed with go-go luminaries, including Chuck Brown and Little Benny, who both took the stage to perform. Sadly, Benny passed away a few weeks later. You can bet he'll be honored this weekend during another throwback Trouble Funk show at the Masonic Temple, hosted by comedian (and D.C. native) Tommy Davidson and also featuring DaMixx band. Tickets are $25 in advance from Ben's Chili Bowl.
