420 Funk Mob

aMob Activity in Tacoma: 420FM at Jazzbones
"The 420 Funk Mob with special guest George Clinton killed it at Jazzbones for a sold out crowd. In case you missed it There is really nothing like being in a small venue, bathing in Funk and basking in the best vibes imaginable. It was likely one of the best gigs this town has ever hosted"
Paul Shrag The Volcano

The 420 Funk Mob brought their unique take on the Jam Band thing to a packed house at the Bearsville Theater on Saturday night. Parliament Funkadelic Front Man Mike Clip Payne led a band of allstar musicians through a set of original material, covers and some P Funk classics that kept the sold out crowd dancing until the closing time. A Psychedelic Funk n Soul Rock explosion
Woodstock News

"The fans, mostly below 30, went fully into ecstasy. Everyone in the Castle Courtyard was dancing. People were jumping up and down, throwing thier hands in the air with the funk sign salute.The driving sound of the Funk Mob with special guest Fred Wesley, had the entire crowd swaying to the Seductive Psychedelic Funky Rhythms."

"What began as a side trip for Parliament-Funkadelic’s Michael “Clip” Payne has evolved into one of the most versatile jam bands around, a Family Stone-meets-The-Dead vehicle that frees your mind -- so that your ass, of course, can follow. Some of the finest original funk this side of Sly Stone, Larry Graham and the Godfather of Soul. The 420 Funk Mob melds that sound with some Sixties psychedelia, a bit of Sun Ra "arkestration," and even a little soft rock, performed by a revolving cast of former P-Funk members and masterful musician friends. Jam after jam, style after style, they sync up. One collective under a frequently hypnotic groove" Jerry Demarco

Paradise Found 420 Funk: Mob Alive in Spain
Led by Parliament-Funkadelic alumni Clip Payne and Garry Shider, this riotous Mob (420 Funk Mob) dips a wet finger into early '70s Funkadelic. The 'lectric Kool-Aid they offer is vividly hued, sweet, granular. This 3-CD European debut was recorded live after just three hours of rehearsal. With 20 people going at it, things can be a bit of a mush, but the weird bubbles up readily and frequently, setting them apart from today's P-Funk oldies revue. The wind falls out of a few cuts midway, but then a carnal sax or madness-flecked keyboard offers subtle variations on the theme, riding the handclap current until the songbirds and trombones soar. Bonus DVD footage from 2004 fills in the visuals, revealing a band intent on living new chapters in the George Clinton legacy. The be-dreaded one even joins them in Spain, offering his own funky anointing to the proceedings. This is solid stuff if not the full blown return to Pedro-Bell-psychedelic-glory one might want.

Bring Back the Funk Parliament Funkadelic Lives On
The Parliament/Funkadelic legacy lives on with the formation of two spin off bands 420 Funk Mob and DRUGS..........Arranged with filtered vocals, psychedelic melodies, gut-wrenching rhythms, wah-wah pedals, thick bass lines and Clips coarse dense tone, the 420 Funk Mob and DRUGS sound like a medley between some spunky Grateful Dead and a Jimi Hendrix style jam session........

The Clinton that did Inhale
Last Thursday night, over 500 people gathered for a sold-out funk festival at the Haunt, put on by Parliament-Funkadelic off-shoots DRUGS, Kidd Funkadelic, and 420 FM with special guest George Clinton. Throughout the night, concert-goers packed shoulder to shoulder and shook the small, hot, upstate-backward space of the Haunt as they got down to each of the three conglomerate bands' slightly different take on the classic P-Funk style.......
