    George Clinton & The P-Funk All Stars

    The rhythm of family has been a constant thread throughout P-Funk’s long lineage and the myriad iterations the band has undergone in its 50-plus years. From The Parliaments to Funkadelic to Parliament Funkadelic to the P-Funk All Stars, George Clinton has conducted the mothership as a reliable father figure. When he commands you to „put a glide in your stride and a dip in your hip, and come on up to the Mothership,“ he’s presenting to you the first law of Funktonian physics. We at NPR pledged our groovellegiance when he and his P-Funk All Stars touched down to bless the Tiny Desk.

    Clinton has brought his own bloodline into the most recent lineup of P-Funk: His grandchildren are the newest backup singers, while another grandchild serves as tour manager. Though this was a much smaller outfit than their traditional stage shows — no horn section, no dancers, no Sir Nose D’Voidoffunk — the extended family was also in full effect. Garrett Shider on rhythm guitar, filling in for his late father, Garry Shider, aka Starchild. Even original trumpeter Bennie Cowan, who still tours with the group but didn’t make it to the Tiny Desk, typically plays alongside his son Benzel on drums. Blackbyrd McKnight and Lige Curry cement the foundation as elder statesmen who’ve been rocking with Clinton since 1978.

    Indeed, the funk father refuses to let the musicianship slip — the band was as sonically tight as ever, blessing us with a canonical three-song set list of classic jams. P-Funk’s influence shaped ’90s hip-hop and culture immeasurably; without Clinton, we’d have no NWA, no G-funk, no Tupac, no EPMD, no Ice Cube… and, of course, no one’s forgotten about Dre. Clinton and P-Funk brought world class funksmanship, and it was our pleasure to air the room out and squeegee the floors after soaking up their cosmic slop.

    Set List

    „Standing On The Verge Of Getting It On“

    „One Nation Under A Groove“

    „Give up the Funk (Tear the Roof off the Sucker)“

    MUSICIANS

    George Clinton (lead vocals), Dwayne Blackbyrd McKnight (guitar), Lige Curry (bass), Garrett Shider (guitar), Danny Bedrosian (keyboard), Benzel Cowan (drums), Tonysha Nelson (backup vocals), Patavian Lewis (backup vocals), Tairee Parks (backup vocals)

    Energie und Spaß: „We’re comin‘ rougher …“

    Gogol Bordello

    We’ve been filming Tiny Desk concerts for more than 10 years. While revisiting our archives, we discovered that some of our earliest concerts never made it to YouTube!

    Watch Gogol Bordello’s Tiny Desk concert from 2010: https://www.npr.org/2019/09/11/128111

    Stephen Thompson | June 28, 2010

    If you watch this video and don’t get to the part where Eugene Hutz is dancing on the desks, then you’ve missed the most rollicking and insane Tiny Desk Concert of all time.

    I’ve seen Gogol Bordello at a nightclub, and its live show is a gypsy punk circus, complete with a high-wire act. So when the band arrived at the modest NPR Music offices, I wanted to make sure we were covered technically; I figured they’d move around and wind up singing far away from our microphones. I asked Sergey Ryabtsev — Gogol Bordello’s Russian-born violinist — if he thought bandleader Eugene Hutz might wind up dancing on my desk. With a huge smile and a large shot glass of vodka in hand, he said, „Don’t worry about it!“

    By the third song, Hutz was sitting with the NPR crew in an office chair, singing his ode to alcohol. By the fourth, he was jumping from desktop to desktop, singing and dancing.

    Gogol Bordello is based in New York City, and has been performing its theatrical concoction of accordion, violin and guitar since the late ’90s. The band writes songs about immigration and the celebration of cultural differences. Now, for 2010, Gogol Bordello has its fifth album out — its first on a major label. Producer Rick Rubin, known for his Johnny Cash production and for co-founding Def Jam Records, helped make Trans-Continental Hustle. It’s an album with more range than sheer thrust, and though the band played a few songs from that album at the desk, when Gogol Bordello is in front of a crowd, it’s in full-throttle mode. No complaints there.

    Set List:

    „Immigraniada (We’re Comin‘ Rougher)“
    „My Compenjara“
    „Alcohol“
    „Pala Tute“
    „Start Wearing Purple“

    Fogerty’s Factory – John Fogerty + Family

    The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music’s Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It’s the same spirit — stripped-down sets, an intimate setting — just a different space.

    April 24, 2020 | Bob Boilen — When John Fogerty breaks out his baseball bat guitar and swings into that famous guitar lick from „Centerfield“ to open his Tiny Desk (home) concert, I can almost taste the Cracker Jacks. Welcome to Fogerty’s Factory, the tricked-out basement where the Fogerty Family (John, his sons Tyler and Shane, and his daughter Kelsy) make music in these quarantined times. His desk is the road case his band Creedence Clearwater Revival used when they played Woodstock, and John shows off a guitar he played at the festival as well. He plays three of his CCR classics from 50 years ago (still singing in the same key), surrounded by family and sending out words of encouragement to all of us.

    SET LIST

    „Centerfield“
    „Down On The Corner“
    „Long As I Can See The Light“
    „Proud Mary“

    Ich hatte auch schon gesehen, dass endlich wieder hinterm Desk gespielt wird! Bei der At-Home-Serie habe ich manchmal gedacht, „was haben die denn für Wohnungen“?

    Die akustischen Versionen funktionieren wirklich fabelhaft, und Mikaela Straus ist einfach klasse. Frei nach Robbie: All the handsome girls are gay.:)
