You’d never believe that on Friday night we teamed up with Junkadelic, a local brass funk band to share the joy of dance and music with members of the public! We jumped on the 6:19pm train at Claremont station, packed full of city workers on their way home. After the carriage settled into silence, I jumped up and welcomed people to the funk carriage. The sound system starts playing funk music but it’s not strong enough and there was at first a slight sense of apprehension from the people.
Then, the 7 piece funk band jumps on at the next station and starts rocking out a Stevie Wonder classic, I Wish. Peoples faces went from surprised to, hilariously surprised in an instant and everybody was up clapping, cheering and dancing. Hand made shakers were handed out as we funked our way through the night, past the stations.
