New Dance Work Inspired By Sly and the Family Stone

David Dorfman, choreographer and head of the David Dorfman Dance troupe, has developed a new work called “Prophets of Funk – Dance to the Music,” inspired by Sly and the Family Stone. “Prophets of Funk” calls on elements of Sly and the Family Stone, looking at “the funk of everyday life, the joy of everyday life” and how everyday people still hope and still aspire, he said in an interview. “I’ve always been the biggest, biggest fan of Sly and the Family Stone.” The dance troupe will perform “Prophets of Funk” on Friday, February 4th at Connecticut College’s Palmer Auditorium.

VH1 The Leak Previews Sly & The Family Stone Woodstock Experience

VH1 and Rhapsody are giving you the opportunity to hear Sly & The Family Stone Woodstock Experience before you can buy it through The Leak. Simply to go VH1 The Leak to preview this great album. And look for all five Woodstock Experience releases on Tuesday, June 30.

This summer celebrates the 40th Anniversary or what Rolling Stone called “the most famous event in rock history”, of the original Woodstock Music & Art Fair. In the summer of 1969, 500,000 people and 32 musical performances came together in Bethel, New York, for an event that sufused our culture, politically and socially, as much as musically.

During that summer, five of those acts, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Johnny Winter, Santana, and Sly & the Family Stone, had also recorded albums for Sony Music Entertainment labels, and for the first time next Tuesday, the Woodstock Experience series combines those albums along with the music from their festival performance.
