Miami Beach, FLA – The threat of a possible tropical storm just three days into hurricane season did not deter hundreds of fans from flocking to the North Beach Bandshell on Friday, June 3 to get down to the unique sound of George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic!

P-Funk played all the big hits like "Flash Light" and "Up for the Down Stroke"! (WPLG)

Dr. Funkenstein may be 80 years old but he still has a whole load of funk in the trunk as he put on display over and over again; rising from his chair to lead the ecstatic crowd in call-and-response singalongs.

Members of P-Funk have come and gone over the years but the level of musicianship has never faltered.
