Due to rain, the event has moved to the Bell House.

Bridging the gap between Prince and Dr. Dre, Zapp's bass-heavy beats and infectious talk box melodies will take you back to a time when funk ruled and hip-hop was just starting to explode on the scene. Discovered by members of Parliament Funkadelic in 1979, the group produced such massive hits as “More Bounce to the Ounce” and “Computer Love” and has been sampled by artists from 2Pac to Jay-Z. So hop in your lowrider and prepare for the funk, as we celebrate the legacy of Zapp. To get you warmed up, D-Nice will rock the house with his signature DJ mix that has been heard from Santos Party House to Obama’s Inaugural Ball. A hip-hop dance lesson by Ephrat "Bounce" Asherie (Broadway Dance Center, Peridance, and Joffrey Ballet School) will start the party.
