Hop on the “Mothership” as we journey back to when Afros were big, bell bottoms were tight, and the music was out of sight. This electrifying show guides us through a musical genre that is sure to have you groovin’ in your seats... Ya’ Digg?  The show pays tribute to artists such as Sly and the Family Stone, Ohio Players, Earth, Wind & Fire, Rufus and Chaka Khan, Rick James, George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic and Bootsy Collins, among others. Written and directed by Daryl D. Brooks.
