Here is exclusive coverage and photos of Prince and The NPG playing at the NPG Music And Arts Festival Saturday, August 6th.  These photos are stunning.  It is a shame the weather cut this show short because by photos alone, it sure looks like Prince was bringing it. 

Just shaking my head as I think of the songs he has been performing lately.  "Gold", "What's My Name" "Calhoun Square" "Mutiny" and I could go on.  The Icon could do a month of shows without doing the same song twice.  We know it.

We have a feeling that day 2 of the NPG Music And Arts Festival is going to be even more amazing with Janelle Monae, Chaka Khan, and Nikka Costa performing before Prince and The NPG take the stage to funk you up yet again. To top it off, the special guest will be Maceo Parker! Seriously, Copenhagen be shakin'.  Even in the rain, you guys stayed.  It was a downpour and Prince was still bringing it.

It is very rare that Prince takes a bad shot but the shot of Prince getting rained on along with all of these I dig.  I think we should petition the first 2 photos to be posters or something.  They are that great.

We really hope rain does not play a factor in any of the shows for day 2 of the festival especially during Prince and the NPG's closing set.

We hope you enjoy the exclusive coverage and photos of Prince and The NPG.  We don't speak for Prince or the NPG, but I am sure they thank each and every one of you for braving the weather and supporting the Festival.-Dr.FB

Here are exclusive photos (exclusive til they end up all over Facebook & Twitter) of Chaka Khan performing at the NPG Music And Arts Festival day one, August 6th 2011.

Chaka did a set chockfull of hits wearing something that I guess was quite comfortable.  Her voice is what she came for and she still has the pipes.  During her set, legendary bass player Larry Graham joined her on stage to sing with her.  Larry dressed in a white suit, seemed bassless.  Oh baby brother!

The former tour mates performed for a packed and wet crowd.  We wonder if Chaka will perform with Larry on day 2 of the festival as Mr. Graham is to perform.  We wonder if he will ever come up with some Larry Graham Crackers.  I would love some of those.  I have a feeling they would be one in a million.

Enjoy the photos of Chaka Khan performing at the NPG Music And Arts Festival.-Dr.FB
