This Pre-New Years Eve weekend come party with Con Funk Shun, celebrating over 35 years in the industry, still taking their fans on a musical journey aboard Love's Train. This special event will commemorate their many accomplishments while showing appreciation to all the fans who have loved & supported them throughout the years. Con Funk Shun is proud to announce and will also be performing new songs from their soon to be released CD Sound of Grown Men. So get your tickets early, this event is sure to be FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

Con Funk Shun is a star-quality attraction delivering a superb, high-energy show with electrifying choreography, glistening six-part vocal harmonies, and a dash of humor. They are, unquestionably, among the heroes of funk with romantic ballads and dance-party hits galore. Memorable melodies, inventive horn arrangements and clav-guitar woven grooves, make the group absolutely essential to the evolution of funk. They charted four consecutive Gold and one Platinum album. Their 20 hit singles included 8 Top Ten R&B Hits and one #1 R&B smash between '77-'86. With finesse and consistency they legitimized what came following them: high-profile, commercial explosions featuring their hits in countless rap/hip-hop samples, exposed them to a new generation, now in their thirties. In response, Mercury/Polygram released the Best of Con Funk Shun in '93 on their "Funk Essentials" Series. The fans immediately recoiled to the “Essential to Funk”, Con Funk Shun. Universal bought Polygram, and again released the sure-thing Money-Maker, Best Of Con Funk Shun on their Millennium Collection in March 2002.
