Go-Go Mickey to Hold Birthday Bash at Howard Theatre

4/9/2014, midnight

D.C. music legend Milton "Go-Go Mickey" Freeman, a consistent force in the genre for more than 30 years, will hold his birthday bash at the Howard Theatre on Saturday, April 12 at 11:30 p.m.

In addition to a special performance by his group, Familiar Faces, a list of prominent artists from the go-go music scene are slated to appear. The show also marks the reunion of Mickey's former group, Reality Band, for the first time in 31 years.

Go-Go Mickey, who is nationally endorsed by Latin Percussion (LP), has been a member of several iconic acts, including Reality Band, Rare Essence, and his current group, Familiar Faces. In addition to his own live performances and studio recordings, he has played with many R&B, hip-hop and go-go greats, including the "Godfather of go-go," Chuck Brown.
