The 2018 Funkateers Ball weekend kicks off with a special evening centered around legendary singer/artist Betty Davis featuring a documentary screening and concert by Funk House!

The evening begins with the DC Metro area premiere of the acclaimed documentary «BETTY: THEY SAY I'M DIFFERENT.» After years of trying, the elusive Betty, forever the free-spirited Black Power goddess, finally allowed the filmmakers to creatively tell her story based on their conversations.

After the screening, Betty Davis' original band Funk House performs their first live concert in the DC area in 40 years featuring original band members and talented new singers.

Betty Davis changed the landscape for female artists in America. An aspiring songwriter from a small steel town, Betty arrived on the 70’s scene to break boundaries for women with her daring personality, iconic fashion and outrageous music. She befriended Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone, wrote songs for the Chambers Brothers and the Commodores, and married Miles – turning him from jazz to Funk on the album she named Bitches Brew. Despite being banned and boycotted, she went on to become the first black woman to perform, write for and manage herself. Then suddenly, she vanished.

The film and show kick off the third annual Funkateers’ Ball weekend. The fan-run event bring together Funkateers from around the country for a music-powered masquerade celebrating the rhythm of Chocolate City. This year’s M.C. will be another Funk legend, Bootsy Collins, who will “get down with his people” and local band the Clones of Funk on September 15 at Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club.
