Description

The History of Go-Go Don't feel bad if you've never heard of Go-Go. It's a local phenomenon that is over 20 years old, and shows not signs of dying. In that time, it has evolved into a way of life unique and rooted to Washington, D.C., Southern Maryland, and Northern Virginia. Chuck Brown is credited as being the man who started it all. For this he is referred to as "The Godfather." During the early 70?s Chocolate City had a very competitive live music scene. Chuck Brown & the Soul Chuck Brown took it even further. He joined different grooves into one continuous set that lasted as long as two hours. The crowd response was overwhelming. Almost over night young bands throughout the city studied the new style. They imitated it, added their own spin, and a new music began to take form. They called it Go-Go, a term that, at the time, simply meant a party. Remember Smokey Robinson?s hit "Going to a Go-Go?"
