P Funk Allstar RonKat Spearman is Authorized to play the Funk.
RonKat is a grammy nominated/song writer of the year winner. He was a vocalist/musician with George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic from 2000 to 2010. Touring the world with GCPF has enriched his talents and pushed his skills to even higher levels of achievement.
RONKAT's music is a combination of funk and rock. Bridging unbelievably tasteful elements of multi-genres in a musical blend of pure magic Katdelic is Original New Funk blended with traditional P Funk grooves.
Katdelic began as RonKat's off the road project for the past few years but as of 2010 (with George Clinton's Blessing) Ronkat devoted all of his time and work to work on his D.O.T.M.S. (Dance On The Mothership) CD .Ronkat picks up on the incredibly high standard set forth by George Clinton during the 1970’s with Funkadelic. He takes this framework and contextures it to a new paradigm of futuristic jubilance. Dr. Funkenstein himself show up in this and personally hands over to Ronkat the keys to the ever-mystical and Fonk-N on Mothership.
Just when you thought the funk could go no deeper, it just did. Ronkat Spearman has delivered the best funk record of the year. It crackles, bubbles, grinds and oozes with so much sonic groove.
Ronkat is one of the new breed of multi-instrumentalist, producer-visionaries out of the bubbling Bay Area Funk scene.
Every…track….rocks. All songs written, produced, performed, engineered, mixed, vocals and lyrics by Ronkat Spearman.
Ronkat’s genius perpetually serves up one good groove after another the not only packs a dance floor, it challenges the listener to soul-search and self-examine through uncanny thought-provoking lyrical imagery. This Kat has something to say.
There’s nothing harder to stop than an idea whose time has come to pass, and Katdelic is what time it is
D.O.T.M.S. (Dance on the Mothership) is a celebration to be able to get the keys to the Mothership for a moment in time. It's like driving your fathers car for the first time. To party aboard the mothership is truly an honor after graduation.
THE ONE - Self realization to walk toward the one is to come closer to one's soul throughout all adversity and to find the ONE you don't have to walk far if you are truly looking for it the ONE is inside you cause ONE is the light.
OH HI - Is my version of a Cosmic Slop I like the big anthem type songs, and it has a big stadium feel to it. the words OH HI mean how high can we rise once we make the change within ourselves and we rise above. It's about ascension.
There are thirteen more thought provoking, make ‘em dance tracks on D.O.T.M.S.
From the infectious funky grooves of STOP INSULTING MY INTELLEGIANT and STRAIGHT MACKIN WIT NO HANDS to the Rumba rhythm of I’LL WAIT to the Funkadelic Rock of CHANGE GENERATION and SHE’S FIRE to the Electro KEEP ON LOVING and the beauty of GLOW, this CD will be the one you find listening to over and over.
RonKat Spearman is an artist with a dynamic stage presence,an amazing voice, solid playing skills, remarkable versatility and a foundation that will insure his future in the music industry for a long time to come.
"It's all about the beats for me, coupled with a cold melody and good lyrics. I like to keep my mind open to the pulse of the people because it inspires me whether I am writing a love song, dance song or working on my Katdelic Music." - RonKat
"I caught last 2 hrs of Ronkat at Boom Boom Room. Ronkat is now my favorite funk band. Folks from Brown Fellinis on horns and folks from P-Funk on guitars. I am sprung."
