ToNY CaMM & The Funk Allstars Land The Mothership at Funkateers Ball 6! 

As we are just three months away from Funkateers Ball 7, Sept 30th at Bethesda Blues & Jazz Club we re-visit last year's event where ToNY CaMM & The Funk Allstars, sharing the stage with P-Funk legends Michael “Kidd Funkadelic” Hampton, Linda Shider, Gabe Gonzalez and Kendra Foster, along with guests Shirley Clinton, Zack Roberson, Clones of Funk drummer “Big Funk Rob” Woods and bassists Robb Harper and Mike Patterson, summoned the spirit of the landing of the holy Mothership in tribute to the great Parliament-Funkadelic.

ToNY CaMM & The Funk Allstars with special guests fill the stage for a crowd-infused rendition of Parliament's “Mothership Connection”.

The annual P-Funk convention, organized and hosted by the Chocolate City Alliance and sees Funkateers from all over the world converge on Bethesda, MD. for a three-day-weekend of funk and fun, kicked off on Friday with a meet-n-greet and a funked-up deejay session featuring Gabe “DJ Gonzilla” Gonzalez at the Bethesdan Hotel.

On Saturday, attendees spent the day indulging in several “on-your-own” funky experiences, including a P-Funk trivia competition, a ToNY CaMM & The Funk Allstars comic book signing, exploring Bethesda and just hanging out and catching up.

Saturday night's main event, the Ball, following welcome and words from event founder Dr. George H. Darden and prayer by Robert Woods, kicked off with a marching band intro from Ball emcee and legendary Mandrill drummer Neftali “Funkadrill” Santiago, who pumped up the crowd with his new release “Release The Funk”.

Then things got “Stupid”, as ToNY CaMM, Nappy Head Funk Army's Zack Roberson, Kendra Foster and Brett Murray joined opening act, and fellow touring band Earthbound Creatures for a medley of Funkadelic hits including “Standing On The Verge (Of Getting It On)", “Super Stupid”, “I'll Stay” and “Alice In My Fantasies”.

ToNY CaMM, Zack Roberson, Kendra Foster and Brett Murray join young funk rockers Earthbound Creatures for a hyped-up Funkadelic medley to open Funkateers Ball 6.

During the intermission P-Funk Radio's Keith Jackson paid tribute to everyone's “Honey Bee” Brenda Robinson amid an outpouring of love from the house.

Then the entire Funk Allstars army took to the stage and launched into a two-hour funk ride that included 30 people performing such P-Funk hits as “One Nation Under A Groove”, “Flashlight”, “(Not Just) Knee Deep”, “Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off)”, “Cosmic Slop”, new Parliament-Funkadelic songs “Pole Power” and “I'm Gon Make U Sick”, a soaring rendition of “Maggot Brain” featuring Mike Hampton and a closing, bring-the-house-down version of “Mothership Connection”.

Now that you're all funked-up and pumped-up…get your TICKETS now to Funkateers Ball 7 and "let's have a ball yall".

The Funk really IS it's own reward.

New Lynchburg Jazz venue prepares for Sold Out opening weekend. 

.                         Tony Camm tests the stage lighting at the new Jazz@720 venue.

Jazz@720, Downtown Lynchburg's new live music and event venue opens this weekend and it's idea creators are ecstatic that both shows on Friday and Saturday are sold out.

A great start for a concept that didn't even exist a month ago, and was born out of a lunch conversation between local entertainerpreneur Tony Camm and the owners of the 720 Commerce Street space and Mission House Coffee.

The idea was for a collaborative event space in the newly renovated building that would satisfy a few goals...breath life into an empty space, give local jazz musicians a recurring place to perform, and bring a new form of recreation to Downtown.

Mission accomplished, as the advanced ticket sales for this weekend have reached the 70 ticket capacity days before opening.

Camm has enlisted the help of his wife Jacqui, former business partner Michelle Johnson-Lane (with whom he operated the Mezzanine Performance Cafe in that same space back in 2008), local musicians Josh Barling and Lew Taylor, as well as a host of friends and family members to transform the space and have it show-ready by opening date.

The venue will play host to many variations of, art shows, pop-up shopping, poetry and more, all branded with the @720 moniker.

Info and tickets for all events can be found at

.                          Furniture and lighting almost complete at the @720 venue in Downtown Lynchburg.


Concerts For Causes Event Presents Instruments To Lynchburg Kids! 

Concerts For Causes, Inc. and ToNY CaMM Entertainment, LLC. presented a dozen musical instruments to deserving Lynchburg students during their recent Lynchburg Food, Wine, Funk, Jazz and Blues Festival held on October 15 at Riverfront Festival Park.

Flutes, keyboards and several violins were among the brand new instruments presented to students from our community, most of whom were identified by Dr. Sterling Wilder at the Jubilee Family Center.

The first-time Lynchburg event was born out of the relationship between local entertainerpreneur Tony Camm and Maryland-based Concerts For Causes, Inc. CEO Brett Murray, who met several years ago when Camm's band traveled to Bowie, MD for Murray's Savior Bowie Festival, a twice-a-year, two-day festival that features food, wine, artisan vendors and over twenty-five bands, all to support the organization's "Save The Music" initiative.

"Since it’s beginning, the "Save The Music" initiative has given hundreds of musical instruments to deserving students. Many of our high schools have wonderful music programs with dedicated teachers, but inferior or no musical instruments. Concerts for Causes has given thousands and thousands of dollars worth of instruments to the most deserving students in under-served communities across the nation" says Murray.

The Riverfront Park event treated Lynchburgans to fantastic food, wine and artisan vendors, both local as well as from the Maryland area, and featured local bands Flat Five Jazz, Earthbound Creatures and The Funk Allstars, and Maryland bands Steve Leads & Off The Grid and Cymone Lovett & The Dream.

Camm and Murray plan to make this an annual event that grows exponentially in vendors, entertainment, crowd size and of course...instruments for our youth.
