The Kinfolks Soul Food Festival

If you were to make a short list of the greatest bass players of all time, Bootsy Collins would surely be included. After firing his backing band in the late '60s, James Brown hired Collins and his brother Catfish's band, the Pacemakers, to back him up. Collins later became a member of Parliament-Funkadelic, creating a legacy of unimpeachable musical excellence and setting a high bar for a larger-than-life stage show. Since then, Collins has been involved in countless collaborations and other projects. There's really nothing not to like about this bombastic character, who also does plenty of work for the community. Collins will be at the Kinfolks Soul Food Festival along with Cameo, Morris Day & the Time, SOS Band and Lakeside.
