Morris Day & The Time on Friday, September 4th
September 4 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
What time is it? It’s time for pimpadelic funk master Morris Day to do what he does best: generate infectious music that makes people get up and move! Backed by the Time’s rock-influenced funk jams, flashback to 1983, when a movie called Purple Rain was king and helped propel this band to the forefront. Typically escorted by his valet, “Jerome” (Jerome Benton), Day won fans with his exaggerated vanity (“Jerome bring me my mirror!”) and strutting bravado, acting as a comic foil to Prince’s romantic, sensitive lead. This persona was further exploited for comic effect on The Time’s records, on songs such as “Chili Sauce” and “If The Kid Can’t Make You Come” from the album Ice Cream Castle. That album, the group’s most popular, is best remembered for the catchy dance singles “Jungle Love” and “The Bird.” Both songs were huge hits on Urban and Pop radio, but it wasn’t until 1990 that the Time scored a #1 R&B hit with “Jerk Out,” a dance/New Jack Swing cut from their fourth album: Pandemonium. Day launched a solo career in 1984 and scored the chart-topping R&B tune “Fishnet.” He returned to perform with the Time in 1988.
Doors open at 6 p.m. Don’t be late! Opener will be Phoenix’s own Japhar Pullen! Tickets: $35, $55, $75 and $125 VIP (includes one premium reserved ticket in the first 8 rows, meet & greet with Morris Day plus photo opportunity).
