NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert: Chuck Brown

November 12th, 2011

The name Chuck Brown might not mean a whole lot to people outside the Washington, DC, area. That would be their loss. In DC, Brown is revered as the Godfather of Go-Go. So to have Brown play in a corner of the NPR Music offices with a full, plugged-in 11-member group was like a dream come true for a lot of NPR staffers. Set List: “Senorita” “Chuck Baby” “Wind Me Up!” / “Bustin’ Loose” “Run Joe” / “It Don’t Mean A Thing” For more Tiny Desk Concerts, visit

    @RAWDernison1 They mostly tour locally these days. Go-go doesn’t get much love outside of our region.

    Maybe unknown in the rest of the USA, but well loved in Haarlem, the Netherlands. When was this recording made ??? Are they still touring ??? Double thumbs up for the sound engineer(s)

    Amazing! Thanks Chuck & crew. What a voice and what a beat! And thanks NPR. I am a huge fan of both. I happened to live in DC for a few years in the 90’s, but I knew Chuck Brown’s music from many, many years prior. I was born in the south in the 60’s and am one of the fortunate few from my generation and location that was blessed to live in both black and white communities. Go Go Chuck. You the man. Long live the Blues, Soul, Jazz, Funk, Go Go and Chuck Brown. I love you brother.
