Prince Throws Down His Own Symposium Of Funk

Prince brought the funk with him to the Conga Room.

"Oldskoolcompany" kicked off the night again. Was that "Gett Off" I heard on guitar when going into the groove a few times? Slammin'!

At one point during "Musicology", a dance party took place on stage with the likes of Tavis n Dr. West just straight getting down. You had to see the dance he was doing during "Play That Funky Music", it was just too much.Cedric the Entertainer n Jesse Jackson couldn't handle that.

Sheila E. Looked freaking amazing in a purple dress n killed it with "Glamorous Life". Ooh la la.

The website was being shown off by one of the tech guys n people were allowed free reign. It seems like it should launch in March and some pretty killer footage is on it. I suck at mac's so my experience was limited. ;(

Here the party may be continuing at 77......

More coming later. Oh yea how did those in attendance like that Coachella footage? Ok I said too much. See you all soon.-Dr.FB

  1. I love that Prince announced that he is “A slave for God!” He commands the stage singing “SHHHH” and he makes you move with “Housequake”! When he passed his guitar to the crowd, that was amazing. I have nothing but love, respect and admoration for Mr. Prince Rogers Nelson!Thank you for introducing me to your website.

  2. Doctor, thanks for the press.
    Liking your reviews on Mr. Purple Boldness!

  3. ok. I’m jealous x 2 !!!!!

  4. ^^^ don’t know if it was the highlight but it certainly moved me.

  5. The highlight of the show was closing song, the drop dead version of Purple Rain!
    Long intro with just the man and his axe.

  6. Prince, Sheila and the band were amazing… Glamorous Life! Finally got to see Prince in person…he’s extraordinarily fine, Wow.

  7. Shame on you Prince!I had/have dibs on singing “You got the look!”lmao Wish I could have been there!Sounds like it was a great show!(not that I am surprised by that!lol)I smell something cookin and I think everyone will be pleased with the feast!Good times for a worthy cause-Great!

  8. Now, Now, lets not throw shade up in here. Who can I trust to text me when the site is on full blast?

  9. Not if sheila’s girlfriend Lynn has anything to say about it LOL Where u been?

  10. Thank Dr. u always keep the true Prince supporters up to date.2009 belongs to prince and i would love to see a picture of Sheila E in that purple dress.I wish prince would marry her sexy self.

  11. The Dr. delivered again, and the cure was Prince!
    Hearing him play The Bird then Jungle Love and then Sheila singing Glamourous Life was classic! An awesome show and venue.

    Props and Pounds to the Dr.!!!

  12. The show last night was very special…Tavis must really have a good friend in Prince 4 him to do that 4 him. The highlight was definitely seeing Cornell West get down. Who know he can dance like that. Tavis should stick 2 talking though..lol.

    The website http://www.lotusflow3r.com one word AMAZING…No one will be disappointed and the webmaster is so friendly. He answered all my questions with no hesitation.

    Sheila E looked beautiful and ageless as usual. Like when Prince went back 2 1999 & “U got the look”. Cora has gotten a lot better…The harmonica player lot of energy he was gr8t addition to the band

    Glad 2 know my money was donated to a worthy event and that Prince & the band donated ther whole fee 2 the event..

  13. come home to Minneapolis and do a show for me, baby!!

  14. I really shouldn’t feel jealous..but I think I am. :)

  15. Somebody text me when lotusflow3r is up and flying.

  16. It MUST be time for a world tour?…
    Feeling very left out here in the UK …HINT HINT!

  17. “…with the likes of Tavis n Dr. West just straight getting down. You had to see the dance he was doing during “Play That Funky Music”, it was just too much.Cedric the Entertainer n Jesse Jackson couldn’t handle that. …”

    Haha I like that..

    So good to hear Prince and band had a great time.
    Getting down and Funky ;)
    Thanks for the info Dr.FB

  18. thanks for the report Dr. “Oldskoolcompany” was taunt. The only cover I missed from Oscar night was “Lets Go”, which Prince plays better than Ric Ocasek and the Cars, who stalled when they hit the road. But Prince killed with “1999,” that had to be the highlight for me.”

  19. 3 worlds… look of a disco jelly fish… ???? dreamers holding on to thier wigs….??? Fill me in!

  20. I hate that I missed this one. After the Oscar show I’m trying to be a little more fiscally responsible. If the “Oldskoolcompany” was as tight tonight as it was Oscar night, then that right there was worth the price of admission. Can’t wait to hear what the setlist was. I’m sure I’ll feel sick about missing this. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there is no better show out there than a Prince club show. Always amazing.

  21. Thank you so much for that comment lotusflow3r3121!!

    Was the song called Dream or maybe Dreamer (like we’ve been hearing?) Can you maybe describe the song? Is it a heavy or a light song… guitar driven like the other LF tracks?

    The tracks you could play from all the cds. Do you mean previous cds or the 3 new ones? If it were the new ones, could you maybe tell a little more on what you heard exactly? Did you see tracklists etc?
    I’m sorry, just got a lot of things I wanna know, but I’m sure you’ll understand ;-)

    Thanks again!

  22. the coachlla footage looked sick hope theres stil a dvd in the workd the website was really cool goot to see all 3 worlds and some cool photos actultly saw what a disco jellyfish looks like and was able to see and play track from all the cds also the 2nd song of the night was the brand new song dream from lotus flower and it was amazing hold on to your wigs i feel it cooming real soon
