45 Minutes of Funk

The Soul Brother Show Featuring Dawn Silva


I remember how excited I was when it was announced that Sly Stone would be making an appearance on the 2006 Grammy Awards. He had been out of the spotlight for almost 20 years and this would be his comeback of sorts. Needless to say, after seeing his performance that night I took to MySpace and aired my frustrations on my blog and my post got the attention of Dawn Silva. Yes, that Dawn Silva from the Brides of Funkenstein. She took the time to explain to me what Sly had been going through and after a telephone call, I began to see things in a different light. A few months later, my wife and I created a publication called SOBO Magazine and I was more than delighted when Dawn Silva granted me my very first interview and sent me on my way as a music journalist.

Fast forward several years later and it's a new season of The Soul Brother Show and I have come full circle by having Dawn Silva as my very first guest for 2014! On this funked up episode, Dawn talks about her illustrious career singing with both Sly Stone and George Clinton as well as talk about the Brides of Funkenstein. She also sheds light on the state of funk music and her plans to keep the music alive and kicking for many years to come! To keep it in the pocket, we got the music of the P-Funk family to move and remove you! As always, kick back, relax, and enjoy!
