George Clinton Tonight! Revolution Live's Jeff John's Remembers Best Shows on Their 8th Anniversary


Update: The show has been postponed due to Hurricane Sandy. 


It was with reggae legends the Wailers that Revolution Live first opened its musical doors to downtown Fort Lauderdale. They performed on the back patio, a space now known as America's Backyard. That was eight years ago. Since, music makers of every genre and sort have blown ears and minds from their stages.

The concert staple is the baby of Jeff John. On this, their anniversary, they're celebrating with George Clinton and Bobby Lee Rodgers. "George played our first New Year's ever," John says as we reminisce on Revolution's past shows. "The band is great. They speak music; they speak party; they speak fun." Fitting for such an occasion.
