Classic funk band Zapp is teaming with comedian Sinbad for a show at Morongo Casino and Resort Friday Nov. 23 at 9 p.m.
Zapp is responsible for the hits "More Bounce to the Ounce," "Computer Love" and "I Want to Be Your Man." Their style is instantly recognizable thanks to the computerized talk box that late founder Roger Troutman used on many of their most famous songs.
To this day Zapp still gets regular airplay on local oldies stations and no backyard barbecue is complete without the band's music. For awhile they were the most heavily sampled group in hip hop.
Sinbad came to fame in the '80s on the original talent competition "Star Search," but really took off as a regular on "A DIfferent World." Since then he has continued touring and made a comeback with an appearance on "Celebrity Apprentice" and his reality show "Sinbad: It's Just Family."
Tickets are available through Ticketmaster for $35 and $55.
Zapp will also be appearing at The Art Laboe Show 10th Anniversary concert on Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. at San Manuel Amphitheater. Tickets for that show run $16-$94 and are available at livenation.com.
