First conceived by founder Wesley Beann in 1989 as a reunion of fans and musicians who were dedicated to the music of Parliament and Funkadelic.
The reunion went on to become an annual function. In 1990, the following year, George "Dr. Funkenstein" Clinton having heard of the band was invited to witness his clones. Being moved by the talent of the band, George joined in the performance.
This 8 piece funk band comprised of vocalist, a slammin' rhythm section complete with horns has gone on to do major Benefits, such as the WE CARE Fund-Raiser at the Annapolis Eastport Clipper, and the Larry Griffin Project at the Maryland Creative Arts Hall. In addition, the Clones have played various venues including college functions and clubs from New York City to Virginia.
