Prophets of Funk – Dance to the Music - "Set to the irresistible sounds of Sly and the Family Stone’s groundbreaking, visceral, and powerfulmusic, Prophets of Funk exemplifies the struggles and celebration of everyday people, inviting the audience to find ardor in the muck and mess – the funk – of life. Recognizing the vitality and revelry of the 1970s, Dorfman’s Prophets of Funk seeks to lift up the spirit of Sly: insisting that in the face of this funk, there are still hopes and aspirations that reside in all of us."
