A go-go blowout sends Chuck Brown home


May 31, 2012 9:06 PM EDT Thousands packed the Washington Convention Center for Chuck Brown’s funeral on Thursday. But if anyone wanted to shed a tear for Chuck they needed to squeeze it in between dance sessions — the funeral was a party. Brown’s family and a VIP crowd including Mayor Vincent Gray and former Mayor Marion Barry paid respects to the man who developed a rhythmic form of funk that Washington, DC claims as its own. Brown was 75. (Brad Horn for The Washington Post / The Washington Post)
