Some P funk

While Dr. Funkenstein himself won't be in the house tomorrow evening, three of his original colleagues will perform numbers reminiscent of Parliament's heyday, which launched George Clinton and the funk genre. Fuzzy Haskins, Grady Thomas and Ray Davis formed the Original P in the late '90s after Parliament/Funkadelic folded in the late '70s and they dabbled in solo careers. Now a 15-piece band, the Original P will perform at 8 p.m. tomorrow at the Funk Box. Tickets are $19 at the Funk Box ticket office, open 11 a.m.-midnight, at 10 E. Cross St. No opening act will dilute the funk.

The Original P show starts at 8 p.m. tomorrow at the Funk Box, 10 E. Cross St. Tickets are $19 and are on sale at the Funk Box's box office from 11 a.m. to midnight or at www.ticket master.com. Call 410-625-2000 to buy tickets or visit www.thefunkbox.com.

The Oranges Band plays at 10 p.m. Friday at the Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St. Tickets are $8. Call 410-662-0069 or visit www.theottobar.com.
