George Clinton Gets His Own Day, Key to the City in New Orleans
George Clinton parked his mothership here in the '70s, but it takes a while to get a key to the city. "The first ever landing was here in New Orleans in October 1976 at the Municipal Auditourium," DJ Soul Sister said of Dr. Funkenstein's vessel. "A lot of people don't know that." While it's been a while since the last landing, the funk legend constantly plays New Orleans, especially during JazzFest. As of of Sunday night, May 5 will be set aside to further strengthen the Crescent City's Mothership Connection with Clinton.

But based on its persistent popularity, it seems unlikely that the organizers will stop drawing more from the “Heritage” side as opposed to the “Jazz.” WWOZ’s annual Piano Night, however, faces no such controversy either in name or scope.
