Bootsy Collins & The Funk U Band – The Funk Unity Tour 2011

Bootsy Collins & The Funk U Band – July 9, 2011 – Jazz A Vienne, France:
The Pinocchio Theory, Hollywood Squares, Swing Down Sweet Chariot, Cosmic Slop

Bootsy Collins has assembled a monster band of P-Funk alumni (calling them the Funk U Band) for his 2011 Funk Unity Tour in support of his new album, Tha Funk Capitol Of The World. And if that sentence didn’t have enough Funk for ya, I’m about to hit you off with even more!

You can start by pressing play on the above audio track. Then move on to the full course, this 2 hour pro-shot video of the full show from July 9, 2011 in Vienne, France:

When you’re done with that i’ve got some downloads for you. I’ve ripped the above video and you can download the 800mb flash video file via: MEGAUPLOAD or TORRENT.

I’ve also got audio of the next night’s show at North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam, Netherlands from July 10, 2011. It’s a 103 minute untracked audio file and you can download it in either MP3 or FLAC. I recorded it from the NSJF webstream, so it is soundboard quality, although it was only streaming at 192kbps.
