Bougainvillea Productions and Soul Project NOLA have partnered to bring you “Friday’s From the Funky Uncle!”, a webcast featuring New Orleans Funk Musicians playing live to raise money for all members of the entertainment community in New Orleans who are in need. Starting Friday April 3, 2020, and continuing every Friday thereafter, we will present a live performance from the decks of the one of a kind Mardi Gras float, the Funky Uncle Lounge. Combined with musician interviews and outreach news and in the vein of Soul Train or the Midnight Special, the hour and a half program will stream on FaceBookLive and will raise money through the use of a virtual “tip bucket”. The resulting fund, thefunkfund, will be distributed to musicians and entertainment workers economically or medically impacted by COVID 19. If you are a fan and lover of this music, and are able, you can and should donate anytime to help defer the hardship forced on our cherished New Orleans musicians and the people who work to bring them to you. Follow us on social media @fridaysfromthefunkyuncle.
