Last night, Webster Hall was buzzing with an all-star cast of musicians and celebrities, as legendary keyboardist Bernie Worrell was honored with a benefit concert. Dubbed All The Woo In The World, the event was set to help raise money for Worrell’s medical expenses (you can donate here), as it was recently revealed that the P-Funk/Talking Heads keyboardist was diagnosed with stage-four lung cancer.
Organized by Nona Hendryx, the event featured performances by Bootsy Collins, George Clinton, Living Colour, Jonathan Demme, Rick Springfield, Maceo Parker, Steve Scales, Bill Laswell, Mudbone, Fred Schneider, Bernard Fowler, Leo Nocentelli, Ronny Drayton, Melvin Gibbs, Jerry Harrison, Screaming Headless Torsos, The Woo Warriors, Sarah Dash, Nelson George, Nona Hendryx, Marc Ribler, Paul Shaffer, Black Rock Coalition Orchestra, Afrika Bambaataa, Questlove, Andy Hess, Jon Batiste, Buckethead and more. Meryl Streep was also on hand, as well as the Talking Heads frontman himself, David Byrne.
