In #DC , you can be convicted of wire fraud, can cheat the city $10k+ in unemployment fraud, plead guilty, have 3 felonies & still be hired by the city. This is a letter sent to Mayor #MurielBowser from DC's inspector general warning her about #CheritaWhiting + mention of the grocery store at 300 Riggs Rd she goes inside threatening and scamming the manager for gift cards and footage of her lying about being #ChuckBrown 's daughter

#Repost @dcsoulrecordings ・・・ Soap Box (Part 2) ......When Brown wanted to bring in a trap drummer and other musicians to broaden the sound, there was a falling out, and Brown formed the Soul Searchers. That occurred in ‘68. Fast forward into the ‘70s, and Brown’s past.....along with the band members he choose.....laid the foundation for Go-Go music using the Latin, jazz, top 40 funk/Soul sounds together as a way of eventually connecting songs to keep people in the Go-Go. (The heavy pocket trap drums were also a nod to the drummer from “And The Echos”, a Baltimore group Chuck greatly respected). This helped The Soul Searchers dominate gigs, and eventually, bands not doing this had a hard time booking work. From there the idea developed into the straight ahead sound of the 1980+ period that we are all familiar with. But when you hear bands or academic presenters tell you that in 1968 and 1969 a band played in a DC Go-Go and developed the Go-Go sound please remember to take it with a grain of salt. #dcsoul #dcgogo #chuckbrown #thesoulsearchers #soul #gogo #funk #latin #afrocuban #jazz
#Repost @dcsoulrecordings ・・・ Soap Box (Part I) - Getting kinda tired of listening to so called historians and experts talk about where Go-Go music came from and involving bands that had no bearing on its development. I hope people will one day gain awareness that there was a world of difference between a “Go-Go” or “Go Go” (the location), and “Go-Go music”, as it would come to be known, prior to the late ‘70s. Plenty of remarkably talented bands played in the Go-Gos not only in DC, but nationwide. Go-Gos spread from the west coast to the east and within their walls were the sounds of many bands across multiple generations and styles of music. My point is that a band that frequented a California Go-Go in the 1970s would never think to connect itself to Go-Go music, despite potential utilization of the call and response mechanism, percussion, etc., and therefore the type of venue is not the key to understanding the development of the music. So if it wasn’t just about being in a Go-Go, then what was the primer that kicked off the growth of the sound? The answer is much simpler than what presentations and readily available written documentation often elude to. Go-Gos were once a place to visit and hear bands play top 40 music, dance, wait for the next song, and dance again. Chuck Brown and his band decided to connect songs in order to not lose party goers to the breaks between sections. It was a hard stop business decision. As a bridge, the band used percussion, call and response, and other crowd drivers to accomplish this. The percussive Afro-Cuban style adopted by Chuck’s band was directly tied to Chuck’s experience with a Latin band prior to forming the Soul Searchers (as well as its adoption by groups across the US at the time). That band — The Los Latinos — had brought in Chuck to replace a keyboardist vacancy, but Chuck filled those parts on the guitar. Prior to this Chuck had primarily played blues and jazz sounds around DC and before that, at Lorton. He’d picked up other top 40 tunes and together with the Los Latinos, integrated their sound into the percussive heavy latin band.
