Chuck Brown's annual CIAA gig cancelled

The Chuck Brown concert scheduled for Amos' Southend Friday, March 2, has been cancelled. According to the club Brown has been hospitalized with an undisclosed illness. The Godfather of Go-Go music, which he describes as funk mixed with African and Latin percussion, has become a fixture during CIAA and was expected to sell out Amos' again. Refunds will be given at the point of purchase.

Brown was honored recently by the National Symphony Orchestra's "Legends of Washington" Labor Day concert alongside fellow D.C. music legends Duke Ellington and John Philip Sousa. Brown received his first Grammy nomination in 2010 after a career that has spanned four decades. The 75-year-old musician was born in Gaston, North Carolina. His biggest hit is 1979's "Bustin' Loose."
