Clip Payne’s 420 Funk Mob features an all start cast of musicians from inside and outside the world of Parliament Funkadelic. The band can be anything from a 6 piece power Psychedelic Funk Rock band to a 23 piece Funkestra featuring horns, background singers and strings, or anything in between. Past players include members of Bowie, Bad Brains, Lenny Kravitz, Outkast, D’Angelo & the Vanguard, 3, Duke & the King, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kung Fu, Jen Durkin, Gene Ween Band, Muzik Mafia Posse and of course Parliament Funkadelic.
“What began as a side trip for Parliament Funkadelic’s Michael “Clip” Payne has evolved into one of the most versatile jam bands around, a Family Stone meets The Dead vehicle that frees your mind… so that your body, of course, can follow. Some of the finest original funk this side of Sly Stone, Larry Graham, and the Godfather of Soul. The 420 Funk Mob melds that sound with some Sixties psychedelia, a bit of Sun Ra “arkestration”, and even a little soft rock, performed by a revolving cast of former P-Funk members and masterful musician friends. Jam after jam, style after style, they sync up.
