FunkParade DC  40932Photo by tedeytan

May 3, 2014 is Washington, DC’s first Funk Parade: Funk Parade was begun by two people who love Washington, DC, live music, and the U Street neighborhood: Justin Rood, a lifelong DC resident, and Chris Naoum, whose organization Listen Local First has helped hundreds of musicians find audiences and gigs throughout the Washington area.

The project has since been embraced by dozens of local businesses, neighborhood groups, community leaders, musicians and artists, who have pledged their support to the event. They hope you will join them and the mighty Funk Parade!
