American funk band War to perform at the Clarion on Feb. 1

Thu Jan 17, 2019


The American Funk band War will bring plenty of grooves to The Clarion at Brazosport College during a 7:30 p.m. performance on Friday, Feb. 1.

War fuses elements of rock, jazz, funk, reggae, Latin, and Rhythm & Blues into an authentic and distinct sound. War’s instantly-recognizable hits include “Low Rider,” “Why Can’t We Be Friends?” “Spill the Wine,” “The Cisco Kid,” “The World is a Ghetto” and “Summer,” just to name a few.

War is also known for their mission of spreading a message of brotherhood and harmony. Through the years, the group has released 18 studio albums, three live albums, seven compilation albums and 60 singles. In fact, their album, “The World is a Ghetto” was the best-selling album of 1973.

Perhaps, nothing epitomizes this truth greater than the fact that War has twice been honored by its hometown of Los Angeles, over twenty years apart, for its music making positive contributions to the betterment of the community.

The Feb. 1 show is sponsored by Gordon & Nancy Wollam and Danny & Robyn Cochran.Tickets for the show are $65 for adults, $60 for seniors, Brazosport College employees and Former Student Association members, and $20 for students and children.
