    I played trombone in the band with Pops from 2001-2004, and it was an unbelievable experience. Without a doubt, the best bandleader I've ever worked for. He would let you blow, but wanted loyalty, which I definitely appreciated. Met a lot of great people AND great musicians! Chuck's legacy is thriving! -Peace

    Cory L. Stowers Art B.L.O.C. DC 202-360-1473 cory202@gmail.com Hello, I hope this letter finds you well. My name is Cory L. Stowers, and I am the Art Director for Art B.L.O.C. DC, a mural painting group from Washington, DC. I am writing this letter in hopes of securing your support for a mural project which I have very recently been commissioned for by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and which is scheduled to begin installation in November of this year. The mural location will be 2420 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE, and will replace a mural my team painted in 2008 titled ‘Many Voices, Many Beats, One City”, which was dedicated to the celebration of Go-Go music. Sadly, the mural has fallen into disrepair and in in need of an upgrade. The commission is part of the Murals DC 2016 program, and they have asked me to return to the space and create something new, which keeps the spirit of the original mural. The mural I am designing to replace the existing work will continue to celebrate Go-Go music and musicians, but I hope to expand on the concept and create a public mural which can serve as a tribute and a tool to educate the public to Go-Go music and culture. It is for this reason I am writing to you today. Below is a list of musicians which I would like to feature in the mural. Each musician will occupy a part of the 100 ft long wall and will be depicted in photo realistic renderings as part of the new ‘Many Voices, Many Beats, One City: Legends of Go-Go’ mural. These musicians have been selected based on their impact on the culture and their endearing legacies. Rodney Tyrone ‘FAT RODNEY” Martin Willie Irving ‘HEAVY ONE’ Gaston Jr. Byron ‘BJ’ Jackson Anthony ‘LITTLE BENNY” Harley Sr. Derek ‘HOUSE’ Colquitt CHUCK BROWN It is my intention to create a work of public art that celebrates and memorializes these musicians with dignity and style. It is my sincere hope that you will support this project. I am asking to speak with anyone connected with the immediate families of these great musicians, or any management entities that may be able to help facilitate communications with immediate family to gain permission to paint their loved ones image and for any source images they could provide for the artists to create the portraits. Given the project is scheduled to be completed this year, time is of the essence. Please feel free to contact me at any time and share this letter with anyone who you think it pertains to, I thank you for your time. Cory L. Stowers Art B.L.O.C.

    I grew up loving Chuck Brown. I have been a fan for over 40 years! My Aunt Brenda took me to Wilmer's Park to see him for the first time when I was about 12 or 13. I can remember him performing all over DC and PG county. There was one place on Central Avenue but I can't remember the name. I think it might have been chuckie, but it's all gone now. It was across the street from Central Gardens. Stone Soul Picnic was my favorite venue. The day always ended with Chuck! RIP Chuck, there will never be another one like you!
