GET's Dain L. Schult, Announces Hip Room Developments
The Floridant/10217146

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Floridant -- Global Entertainment Technology, Inc., ("GET") announces updated research on a short-form weekend programming element that will be syndicated through its Miracle Wonderland Radio Company.

Dain Schult, Chairman, stated, "Hip Room will be a two-hour weekend feature displaying all the facets of American Funk-Soul music.  Funk originated in the Sixties when, through a mixture of soul music, jazz, and rhythm and blues (R&B), musicians created a new form of music both rhythmic and danceable.

"Many of the best-known Funk bands also feature three of more horn players.  Tower of Power ("TOP") is a perfect example as a Funk, Soul, R&B-based horn section and band, originating in Oakland, California, that has been performing for 55 years since 1968. TOP helped to make funk music a successful category, with a broader audience.

"One of their signature songs, 'What is Hip' is the inspiration for the name of this GET show.  It also happens to be the name of another Funk band – 'Hip Room' – just one of countless bands that were formed to emulate the Tower of Power's sound in the succeeding years.

"'The Godfather of Soul,' James Brown helped further Funk along from the Sixties on with a string of hit songs and his style of Funk was based on interlocking, contrapuntal parts - funky bass lines, drum patterns, and accented guitar riffs.  As he put it, 'I changed from the upbeat to the downbeat... simple as that, really.'

"The list of artists and groups that will be a part of the show is extensive and will provide an astonishing level of diversity. As we continue our research and refinement this weekend programming will be fun to listen and dance to. Or as the Tower of Power would say, 'Knock, knock, knock, knock yourself out'."
