RonKat Spearman with KATDELIC

>Watch > Links >

RonKat Spearman is “authorized to play the funk.” The Parliament Funkadelic Allstar is bringing his band, Katdelic, voted Bay Area's Best Funk Bands to Yoshi's Oakland for the very first time.

The leftie who could strum the guitar like a right-handed player, RonKat showed an aptitude for music at an early age and left his hometown of Grand Rapids, Mich., for Los Angeles to realize his dream of making it in the music industry. The ultra talented, composer, producer, singer and multi-instrumentalist got his start writing hits for dozens of artists including, Rick James, Jade, Toni Braxton and El Debarge, earning him Grammy nominations and a BMI Songwriter of the Year nod for the song, “Don’t Walk Away.”

In 2000, RonKat was personally asked by George Clinton to join Parliament Funkadelic, where he would spend the next decade touring as a guitar player and vocalist. RonKat says that touring with George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic for 10 years (2000-2010) was an invaluable learning experience and helped him grow as both an artist and performer. In addition to George Clinton and P-Funk, some of the other notable artists with whom RonKat has recorded, co-written songs, or shared the stage include Billy Preston, Smokey Robinson, Prince, Bobby Womack, Chaka Khan, Henry Rollins, Rick James, Bootsy Collins, El DeBarge, Lenny Kravitz, Shock G and Tommy Lee.

With George Clinton’s blessings, RonKat took a hiatus from P-Funk in 2010 to focus on recording and performing with his band Katdelic, which had been an off-the-road project while he was still touring with the legendary funk outfit. However, he makes it clear that he’s still very much a part of the P-Funk family.

Over the last few years, P-Funk Allstar RonKat Spearman has been shaking up the Bay Area music scene with his unique and potent brand of funk. The Grammy-nominated multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer and vocalist has been busy writing tracks, recording, and fronting his ten-piece band Katdelic. RonKat and Katdelic have been electrifying audiences across the west coast with their super-funky, high-energy shows and have built a devoted following. And the band plays regularly at San Francisco’s world-famous Boom Boom Room where they never fail to tear the roof off. Also, in addition to being a gifted musician and songwriter, RonKat is a charismatic showman who knows how to connect with an audience. And he gets strong support from Katdelic, a crew of some of the baddest players in the Bay Area.

The lineup for Katdelic is the following: RonKat (guitar, bass, keyboards, lead vocals); Adam Lipsky (Drums); Kirk Peterson (bass); Patrick Sims (rhythm guitar); Alan Williams (trombone); Lela Caro (vocals); PTFI (gadgets and background vocals); Rob Poole (bass and background vocals); Genevieve (background singer); and Rasa Vitalia (dancer and Pussy Kat).

RonKat says one of the things that he enjoys most about being an artist/performer is seeing audience members having a blast during his show.

HAROLD DAY & The Experience
Tribute to Jimi Hendrix
You may see other Jimi tributes out there, but this is one that you will not get a feeling of someone trying to copy an artist, but more of carrying on the torch, and continuing the excitement, that Jimi delivered. Harold Day & The Experience will give you something that is fresh and real, while taking you back in time.
Jimi Hendrix was a rock guitar legend, who excited audiences in the 1960s, with his innovative electric guitar playing, making him a pioneer of Rock n Roll guitar. Hendrix left his mark on the world of rock music and remains popular to this day.

There will never be another Jimi Hendrix, but Harold Day and the Experience, will take you through an experience, that will give you a feeling of what a live Hendrix concert was like.

They will take you back to Woodstock, where Jimi did his historical performance of the Star Spangled Banner.

This power trio that consists of: Kidd Funk on bass and vocals, Tony Two Times, on drums and vocals, and Harold Day, doing the role of Jimi Hendrix, on guitar and lead vocals. Together, they will give you the sounds of the Experience, and the Band Of Gypsys, with a little of their own flavor.

Whether you are a Jimi Hendrix fan or not, this show will have you coming back for more.
