Funk Party set at Hayner

TROY — Radio Basim will start the dance party at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 1.

He will also bring with him a video display from the annals of notable funk history such as Soul Train. Basim is a local authority on funk as well as the host for the WYSO (91.3) Friday night show, “Behind the Groove,” which features retro funk 45s, B sides, and neo-funk. He calls it, “head nodding, booty shaking fun.” Basim has also produced the award-wining documentary “Boogie Nights: A History of Funk Music in Dayton,” helping to establish Dayton as the origin of funk music.
