Tribute to Teena Marie: A Funkadelic Holiday Show 

When: Sat., Dec. 14, 7 p.m. 2013
Price: $20-$30
There is no shortage of solemn, classical music events with religious undertones in the Bay Area this holiday season. But sometimes, properly celebrating the season of joy demands a little bit of lighter fare. Get loose while you hold friends and family close with the help of Carmen Jones and the DejaVu Band which will pay homage to legendary R&B and soul singer Teena Marie at Rhythmix Cultural Works (2513 Blanding Ave., Alameda) for the third year in a row. Marie was the protégée of Rick James and arguably the most famous white Motown artist: Over the course of her decade-spanning career, she received multiple Grammy nominations, released fourteen albums, and had many light-hearted, groovy hit songs. With commanding stage presence and impressive range, Jones (who met and recorded with Marie when she was a young girl) is an adept stand-in. She’ll also sing some of her own funk and R&B songs, as well as “funkadelic” versions of holiday favorites.
