Do you like to hear Funk on the Playa?The Lady Sassafras, the playa riverboat built in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, Louisiana, needs your help. Our sound-system needs another 6000w generator to help run our boat's custom built 12,000 watt sound-system. Guardians of the Groove, for the past three Burning Man's we have played the best in Funk, Jazz, New Orleans rhythm-and-blues, Dub, Brazilian, Hip-Hop, and World Music on the playa, as an alternative to the dub-step and electronica that you can hear everywhere else ... help us keep the funk alive in 2011, and give a donation towards this generator. (Note: The Lady Sassafras has till this point been a 100% self-funded project ... but after losing 2 generators in 3 years we now need your help.)

If you love the Lady Sassafras, and you love the funkiest rare grooves from around the planet, please donate and help us keep the Funk alive!
