FUNK-N-ROLL CONCERT
2018 Benefit Concert featuring the legendary Maceo Parker with special guest Candy Dulfer at the stunning, award-winning Aria Event Center in Minneapolis
Maceo Parker: his name is synonymous with Funky Music, his pedigree impeccable; his band: the tightest little funk orchestra on earth.

It's fairly common knowledge that Maceo has played with each and every leader of funk, his start with James Brown, which Maceo describes as "like being at University"; jumping aboard the Mothership with George Clinton; and his ongoing part in Prince's tours. He's the living, breathing pulse which connects the history of Funk in one golden thread. The cipher which unravels dance music down to its core.

"Everything's coming up Maceo," concluded DownBeat Magazine in a 1991 article at the beginning of Maceo Parker's solo career. At the time Maceo was a remembered by aficionados of funk music as sideman; appreciated mainly by those in the know. For the last two decades Maceo Parker has been enjoying a blistering solo career, building a new funk empire; one that is both fresh and stylistically diverse. He navigates deftly between James Brown's 1960's soul and George Clinton's 1970's freaky funk while exploring mellower jazz and the grooves of hip-hop.

Dutch saxophonist CANDY DULFER continues to push boundaries with the release of her new album 'Together'.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 26 years since Candy Dulfer rose to fame with her high-profile collaborations with Dave Stewart (the worldwide number 1 smash “Lily was here”) and of course the legendary Prince, whose tongue-in-cheek recommendation (“When I want sax, I call Candy”) in the "Partyman" video made the world sit up and notice the young, glamorous and talented sax player at his side. Their collaboration continued over the years with many studio sessions, TV show appearances, award show performances (including the Grammy Awards), and concert tours around the globe, including Candy joining Prince’s NPG band as a permanent member for his record-shattering Musicology tour & album

Alumni Shares: Stories From Inside the Park
Former Prince and Paisley Park associates share their experiences working for, traveling the world with and being inspired by one of the most prolific artist of all time; Prince. 

This year's Alumni Shares Panels will feature new faces spanning all eras of Prince's career and be presented in 3 parts:

Her-Story- an all female panel discussion on Prince's role of empowerment. 
 
Image & Style- What goes into designing and creating the looks that became as synonymous with Prince as his music?
The artistic teams in makeup and clothing design and fabrication recount the precision required in helping style an icon. 

Audio Engineering- How does one keep stride with a boss who works 36 hours straight in-studio... 
...views each venue as a new opportunity to customize sonics to deliver the audience the closest thing to audio perfection?

The answers to these (and many more) questions revealed and personal stories you won't hear elsewhere.
