Del The Funky Homosapien Funks Up Chicago

Reggie's Rock Club – Chicago, IL, USA – May 8, 2009

by Tamara Jenkins

Del The Funky HomosapienDel The Funky Homosapien brought his Funk Man Tour to Chicago's Reggie's Rock Club on Friday, May 8th. Proving he still keeps it funky, funky, Del delighted the 17 and older crowd during his one hour set that included old hits "Dr. Bombay," "Mistadobalina," and "Thank Youse" and songs from his new cd, Funk Man (Stimulus Package). Del also performed several freestyles with help from A Plus from the group Souls of Mischief.

The tour also included performances from three opening acts: the Santa Cruz, California band Serendipity Project who delivered a mediocre performance with a sound and style similar to a Red Hot Chili Peppers tribute band; Berkeley rapper and skateboarder Bukue One and San Francisco's Mike Relm whose live performance consists of various music genre's such as rock, pop, hip hop and electronic accompanied by visual images from movies, music videos, commercials and television. Relm even inserts himself into some of the images. Relm's performance was truly amazing and a must see.
