Rock'n'Roll Hall of Famers George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic headline Funktoberfest, a daylong event slated for Saturday, Oct. 8, 11 a.m., at Gelston Castle Estate, 980 Robinson Road, Mohawk. Clinton has been bringing heavy grooves to the world of funk since the 1970s, always delivering a wild, energetic, completely unpredictable show to the booty-shakin' masses. The group was voted No. 6 in Spin magazine's "50 Greatest Bands of All Time" in 2002 and electrified crowds at the 1999 Woodstock in Rome, N.Y.
Also on tap at Funktoberfest will be music from L*A*W, Anguile & the High Steppers, Frank Stepanek Band with George Deveny, Slug and DJ Kaleaf. Advance tickets are $30 and only adults 21 and over with valid IDs will be allowed entrance. There will be a 30 percent discount for VFW and active military members. Gates open at 10 a.m.
