The House of Vibe All Stars took to the stage with the scorching strings of Kris Hawkins and Funkadelic's "Maggot Brain"! That set it off, and with not 1, not 2, but 3 trombonists on deck, the night looked like one of great promise. (That's Shaunte Palmer on the right in the photo.)
As the evening progressed, the band played extended versions of Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon" and the William DeVaughn classic "Be Thankful" (diamonds in the back, sun-roof top, diggin' the scene with the gangsta lean... OOH-hoooo).
As always, Westside Tribe represented. Deploi and Jon Swift STEPPED IT UP! They threw down in a very serious manner. In fact, the 10 piece(!) horn section with Fish on drums rocked the house and set the roof ablaze! When seemingly things couldn't get any crazier, Maseo from De La Soul took the stage!!
How high's the water children?
3 Ft High And Rising INDEED!
Brew and the crew win AGAIN!
