Atlast! Detroit & Family Funktion proudly present
Part 2 of the Family Funktion reunion series.
In case you missed the Memorial weekend party now you get another chance.
If you did attend, we thank you for helping to make it a great night.
This time, we a bring you a special night with Recloose and the Dennis Coffey Quartet.
Matthew Chicoine, aka Recloose, returns to Detroit, for a one night, rare, special DJ set. As a DJ/ producer and live musician Recloose is one of the most versatile and successful talents to emerge from the Detroit scene in recent years. Coming to us from his new home in New Zealand, this native Detroiter returns to hit us with his eclectic taste of musical wonderment.
Along with very special guest Dennis Coffey and his Quartet. This legendary funk/jazz guitarist is the man who gave us the classic and much sampled tracks Scorpio and Taurus as well as the theme to Black Belt Jones. As a former Funk Brother, Dennis played on many of Motown's greatest records and has recorded with Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones, Marvin Gaye and George Clinton to name a few. Dennis Coffey and his quartet join us to lay down some Detroit funk/jazz genius.
I might possibly be out of town that weekend...sadness. This night looks so hot! I really want to go, but I'm not sure if I can perform that kind of magic.
Also that weekend, which I will definitely have to miss because James has a gallery opening at the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago that same night.
