After the concert with Marcus Miller a fan said...I witnessed with my very eyes the history of funk-jazz-rock bass, and reflect better on Marcus' words when he introduced Larry: "here's my Godfather" - Éric

Larry Graham Central Station live in Renesse!
ALL ABOARD FOR Graham Central Station---I'm convinced now that Larry Graham has discovered funkroids (some form of musical steriods) because it is simply against anyone's DNA to consisently play the brand of funk he performed in the otherwise quiet and quaint town of Annapolis, Md. If you think there's a chance Larry has slowed down over the years, think AGAIN, he's not only stepping, he's picked up a few steps. I was certain that during "Release Yourself" Larry would break a string on his bass, as I witness in 1977!!! He started funk bass and GAVE LESSON AFTER LESSON THIS VERY NIGHT-- LIVE AND IN LIVING COLOR. I saw fans walk in, but they certainly limped out with acute whiplash after rubber necking the entire show. Also in the audience next to me was world famous drummer Dennis Chambers (currently w/Carlos Santana 10yrs). I suspect he's a tad sore also. Y'all need to get out and enjoy the funk LIVE by Larry & his band today!!!! There is simply no need to deprive yourself of this original icon of funk & bass.

Prince picked one of his musical inspirations as the opening act. On this show. it was Graham Central Station, whose leader, the legendary bass player Larry Graham, commented that it was his first time performing at the venue since he appeared as part of Sly & the Family Stone. The headliner briefly joined them for a raucous medley of that group's hits, including such classics as "Family Affair" and "Everyday People."
