American funk bassist Bootsy Collins is still firmly in the music game after an impressive 40-plus years of performing, thanks in part to his bizarre humour, outrageous lyrics and, well, unmistakeable fashion sense – he performs in shiny suits, top hats and signature star-studded sunglasses, with a star-shaped 'space bass' guitar. His recent collaborations with mainstream artists such as Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg have also helped keep him in the spotlight. 

Known as one of funk's pioneers after playing alongside James Brown, George Clinton, and Parliament-Funkadelic in the '60s and '70s, the funk icon went on to become a successful vocalist in his own right, forming Bootsy's Rubber Band and recording some of the most quintessential albums associated with the P-Funk style. Catch Collins at one of three shows at SESC Pompeia’s Choperia. Star-shaped accessories are optional.
