Purple Funk Electric Emmy Afterbash! That’s the best way we can describe the vibe at Prince’s late night throw down. The guests, the outfits, the music–all far hotter than usual (and we know Prince’s parties set the bar high EVERY time.) The air was abuzz with electricity of the funky, purple, nothing-but-fun kind, everyone was in on it, taking the vibe even higher.
The night opened with the sexy Satisfied, followed by Prince at times laughing his way through the comedic Beggin’ Woman Blues. (If you haven’t heard it yet… just wait!) Musicians just having fun doing what they do: priceless.
The crowd was rapt, rockin’ all night as the band rolled through (among others) Cream, U Got The Look, A Love Bizarre, Lady Cab Driver, Let’s Go Crazy, and a few covers such as Be Happy, Let’s Go and Long Train Running. (Marva King took the lead on this one.) Come Together became an anthem of interconnectedness, as the crowd chanted come together over and over. It was quite moving.
The show closed with Purple Rain with Prince kicking it off on keys before switching to guitar. Everyone singing “woo hoo hoo hoo” in unison made us want to break out the lighters and wave em up in the air like back in the day.
The room may have been filled with TV stars, but they know how to groove with the best of ‘em!
These television luminaries, most of who seemed new to the purple party scene, it was the most fun they ever had, or even the best night of their lives. many even thanked the staff as if they were the stars - true class actors and actresses at the soiree. Kristen Chenoweth was so overcome with joy that she left in tears.
Now how’s THAT for a good time?
We want to thank the person who sent this in. We have another review from a different perspective that will be posted shortly. -Dr.FB
