At 74 years old, Chuck Brown still reigns over the go-go genre with full force and remains one of the most celebrated figures in Washington D.C. The guitarist, vocalist and bandleader got his start in the 1960s as a guitarist with Jerry Butler and The Earls of Rhythm, as well as Los Latinos.

Pulling from Latin, African and jazz influences, his style is highly regarded for capturing the bass-line fundamentals of dance music. Brown's latest, We Got This, is a three-disc album featuring exciting collaborations with Jill Scott, Ledisi and Marcus Miller.
