Washington, D.C. – Saturday, Aug. 18 will be a date to go down in Washington, D.C. and Go Go history as more than 10 monumental Go Go bands will grace the same stage, on the same day at the same time for an all-day event dedicated to honor the Godfather of Go Go Chuck Brown.
An event of this magnitude hasn't occurred since Go Go LIVE at the Capital Centre in 1987; Chuck Brown Day will be taking place at the Washington Convention Center and will feature old and new Go Go band performances.
The event which will be hosted by R&B crooner Christopher Williams and Brown's daughter KK, is being presented by the Lifestyle Empowerment Symposium K. Performances will include EU featuring Sugar Bear, The Original Soul Searchers, The Original Pleasure Band, Suttle Thought, Trouble Funk, Junkyard, Backyard, India Arie, Dwele, Calvin Richardson and other special surprise performances.
