Ring in the new year with the best party in the Bay Area with funk legend Maceo Parker. With two shows on this special evening, you have the choice to either start your New Year's Eve off right while avoiding the crowds, or Members can celebrate together through midnight as we countdown to 2019!
Ring in the New Year with the king of the funky saxophone and one of the primary architects of modern R&B, Maceo Parker along with a special guest, saxophonist Candy Dulfer. Parker spent the first half of his career in the service of funk’s founding fathers, and in his second act as a bandleader, the unrelentingly soulful saxophonist/vocalist has ascended into the funk firmament in his own right, leading a righteously grooving outfit that plays with ecstatic precision and ferocious drive.
The altoist made his mark as an essential voice in the powerhouse horns backing James Brown, contributing classic funk solos on some of the Godfather’s iconic hits. He went on to join George Clinton’s moveable funk feast in Parliament/Funkadelic during the ensemble’s most creative era. He was part of the James Brown offshoot JB Horns led by fellow Brown alum Fred Wesley and saxophonist Alfred “Pee Wee” Ellis, and has contributed to albums and tours with artists including the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Keith Richards, Dave Matthews Band and most extensively, Prince. Since the early 1990s, Parker has been spreading gospel of groove, and recorded his seminal 1992 album Life on Planet Groove with Dulfer, along with the 2003 release Maceo by Maceo and 2005’s School’s In.
