Morris Day and the Time coming to Tampa Bay




Morris Day and the Time (or "The Original 7even" as they like to be called now) have an April 6 date at Funk Fest in St. Petersburg's Vinoy Park.

Consider the name change to be part of the never-ending battle Morris and the boys have waged against record companies and their "creator" (some guy named Prince). But their set will still include all the hits from Purple Rain and other albums during the '80s. (Please, don't embarrass yourself -- learn the difference between Jungle Love and The Bird.)

I caught their show at the Flamingo in Las Vegas a few years ago and it was truly amazing. They have a new album in the works and a new single, #Trendin. Check it out here.
