George Clinton makes history in Leesburg

© Leesburg Today - 11/23/2015

It was a night of freedom, funk and unity.

People of all ages, ethnicities and walks of life came to together Nov. 21 to get down to George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic at the Tally Ho in Leesburg. All 600 people in the crowd couldn't help but dance to the grooving bass lines, driving guitar solos, flaring horns, powerhouse vocals and intense drum beats.

""Once that baseline drops, your legs start moving and you just can't stop,"" said John Ballos of Point of Rocks, as he stood in line to get into the much-anticipated show. ""When we saw P-Funk was coming we had to get the tickets. We got them right away because we knew that it would sell out fast.""

Ballos was right. The show sold out over a month in advance, a record for the Tally Ho, according to its owners.

The timeless appeal of funk brought out baby boomers and millennials alike. There were even families enjoying the show together.
