“There would be no Go Go if not for the showmobile, summer in the parks, and the good times all over Southeast, Washington. I remember when the battle of the bands was big fun. The competition was great and made me a better musician. You must read this book to fully understand why Go-Go is so popular in DC. The pocket, The Beat, and now the new Go-Go Beat, the Bounce Beat - Go-Go is DC!”
