Feeling the need for community during the pandemic, a group of talented musicians has been giving local residents something to groove to…performing parade-style funk concerts from the back of a trailer, and travelling through Wisconsin neighborhoods. Now, the FUNK WAGON is making an official stop at Young Auditorium with a full concert featuring music from classic funk artists such as James Brown, Dr. John and Prince.
