Bass Players to honor Funk Brothers

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by SoCal1, Mar 14, 2013.

  1. We're expecting some of L.A.'s great musicians along with many Motown legends from yesteryear on March 21 when The Funk Brothers are honored with their STAR on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. I'm especially looking forward to seeing several of our fellow bassists including James Jamerson lll, Phil Chen, Freddie Washington, Leon Sylvers, and more. Bob Babbitts family along with several other Funk Brothers families will also be in attendence. The ceremony on Hollywood Blvd & Sycamore takes place at 11:30 sharp and the public is welcome.

    Thanks for the heads-up.
    I think it's awesome that the Funk Brothers will have a star on the WOF.
    As much as I dislike driving to Hollywood from the Valley, I might make this trip!

    They were amazing. I'm sort of ashamed to have not really known about them prior to the movie. I always knew the instrumental music was great and knew of James Jamerson, but never knew of the others.
