Chuck Brown, R.I.P IV (Tribute)

One last Chuck Brown R.I.P. post….  Chuck had been scheduled to appear at The Hamilton on 6 June with the Brass A Holics, a New Orleans band that has incorporated Go-Go into their own style.

Alas, he couldn’t be there, so they were joined instead by Chuck’s daughter and co-performer KK (“Chuck baby don’t give a fuck”) and Sugar Bear (of E.U. fame) in a full-up Go-Go tribute to Chuck.

With the slide show I had produced for the viewing projected behind the stage, there were eery moments when it almost felt like he was present.
