Chosen By The Funk Presents:

Deep Purple – A Tribute For The Heads

Moodymann (KDJ Records, Mahogani Music) *Minneapolis Debut*

One Midwest funk legend pays tribute to another on the one -year anniversary of the world getting a lot less purple, in the very building where it all began for the Minneapolis icon. Detroit’s Moodymann is so devoted a Prince fan, he turned his entire home in to a shrine for his dearly departed hero last year.

Needless to say, his Prince record collection is substantial, including rarities, b-sides, and unreleased material. At Deep Purple, he will show you just how deep those crates go. You may hear some of the hits, but don’t expect them all night. He will be joined by some of Minneapolis’ finest house and funk DJs to provide a soundtrack of Prince and Prince inspired music all night long.

While on his way to visit a techno museum in Detroit last May, Chosen By The Funk head Bobby Kahn heard the familiar voice of Prince coming from down the block. He followed the music to its source, a house with purple curtains flowing through the windows; Bobby had stumbled upon Moodymann’s Prince palace. From that moment on, he knew he had to get Moodymann to help him pay tribute to Prince.

A few months later, at First Avenue following the massive Xcel Center Prince Tribute, Bobby spotted a familiar face in the crowd. As if he were Moodymannifested, suddenly the man Bobby was after was standing 10 feet in front of him in his favorite club, as Morris Day & The Time were about to take the stage and Stevie Wonder sat upstairs, some 50 feet away.

These two serendipitous connections have now led to Moodymann’s first appearance in Minneapolis in his 20+ year career as a house, funk, and jazz producer/DJ, with an undeniable stamp of approval from the funky man upstairs. The Purple One works his magic in mysterious ways!
