"Block Party" by Chuck Brown feat. DJ Kool

Chuck Brown passed away yesterday. He created the Washington D.C. Go Go sound.   I have two other posts on this blog about Chuck Brown. I saw and heard him and his band at the Washington Plaza hotel in the early 1980's. His band was called Chuck Brown And The Soul Searchers. There is plenty more of Chuck Brown on Youtube.
  His band could play for 4 hours and never stop. They did not stop between songs. The drums and the band kept up the beat non stop for 4 hours. The audience would holler "Wind Me Up Chuck".
