Funk Still Shining Brightly on Con Funk Shun

Con Funk Shun is definitely among the top tier of funk bands from the late 1970s and into the early 1980s. Led by Michael Cooper and Felton Pilate not only could they throw down with the best of them but they were also very strong on the ballads. Combine that with the ability to write catchy, infectious songs with memorable hooks and we’re talking something special indeed.

Even if their recent comeback album was disappointingly mellow for hardcore funkateers it is refreshing to see Con Funk Shun continuing to bring it on stage. Below is most of a show the band performed in Florida a couple of years ago.
