Funk season arrives in Hudson this weekend in the form of a holiday funk-tacular at Club Helsinki. On Saturday, December 21 and Sunday, December 22, New York’s Holidelic – part dance party, part funk concert, part comedy show – and show off influences including P-Funk, Sly Stone, and other diverse funk and soul bands. This is a show for all races, creeds and lifestyle, and even for all ages with a little parental guidance.
Holidelic features original holiday songs as well as loose, funk-infused adaptations of Tchaikovsky, “Frosty the Snowman,” “Little Drummer Boy” and the like. With Holidelic, Everett “Papadelic” Bradley puts a fresh spin on holiday cheer, through lively holiday party tunes, outrageous costumes, and a theatrical stage show worthy of George Clinton’s P-Funk. There’ll be no “Silent Night” when Holidelic reinvigorates the season, prompting concertgoers to shake their holiday booties to Sly Stone-style funk ‘n’ roll. Ho-ho-ho.
