Con Funk Shun delivers a high-energy show with electrifying choreography, glistening six-part vocal harmonies, and a dash of humor. Memorable melodies, inventive horn arrangements and clav-guitar woven grooves, make the group essential to the evolution of funk. Their impressive music career includes four consecutive Golds and one Platinum album. Their 20 hit singles included eight Top Ten R&B hits and one #1 R&B hit.
