go-go musician

Lionel Frazier White’s roving street performance utilizes the percussive call-and-response style of go-go, to interact with passersby. Go-Go is a music created and cultivated in Washington D.C. by artists such as the late Chuck Brown. One of the basic elements of Go-Go’s call and response is the shout out, often facilitated by a drummer and a "caller".  As people interact with the musicians and street team, their name will be written on the Chuck Buck Board and their names will be shouted out. They will also receive a small Chuck Buck as a souvenir. This performance was developed with artist/director Holly Bass.
