Mr. Chuck Brown, I sure do miss you. When I hear your music, It just make me feel so good inside and put a big smile on my face. You will always be in my heart. PS. You remind me so much of my uncle. RIP much LOVE!!
November 02, 2012
I guess now that the shock is over we're left to deal with the realness of how your passing has changed our lives.

Truth is some of us will thrive but some won't. Not because you didn't teach us but because you were our strength your words of encouragement kept some of us afloat.....

See thats a gift we Browns have; the ability to encourage, elevate and love one another. We protect one another and we share in the success of our loved ones because we know where we came from and thank God for where we're going.

Even when you were'nt around we knew that you would be dissapointed if we strayed into the path of distruction because you worked so hard to show us that there was life.....a good life to be had if we prayed for it and worked hard. You were the patriarch of our family. Our head.

You were transparent for us so we could see the real you. You shared your ups and downs. You told us about the many days you had to do without the basics but, through the grace of God you made it.......

Now it's our turn. Our time to grow and shine in the profound legacy you've left for us. Not just the legacy of music but one of strength, character and love.

We love and miss you Uncle, especially me because you encouraged me so much....my dad, you and the family made me so proud to be a Brown and I just pray that I excell not because of who I am but because of whose I am.

God is first with us Browns, we haven't forgotten and we never will.

Miss you!

It was a surprise and a pleasure to learn that chuck was my 2nd cousin. We spoke several times over the phone, but never got to meet him in person. The Ellerbe's, Moody's, Ponders', & Carraway's family still desire to get together and fellowhsip with his family. Chuck's family is in our prayers and we know his memories will live on forever. Love, cousin carolyn moody ellerbe and family

June 04, 2012
When folks write Chuck Brown was DMV only, they have not a clue. Although from DC, I first partied off the Soul Searches' "We The People" in Atlanta during the early 70s. I was in 8th grade living in a really conservative neighborhood. But no matter how bougy those parents were, in our school and in the driveways of our neighborhood, the radio blasted "We The People" and those kids went crazy!!!! I think "We the People" was one of the first 45s I ever bought. I still remember the record label. Returning home to the parties, college break, visits... always hearing the music EVERYWHERE you went... Great fun and great memories! I lived a lot of places but... ain't nothing like homegrown go-go!!! Thank you Chuck Brown for giving us our musical homebase, especially when we are not home. You have no idea what hearing go-go means when you are not in DC! May God continue to shine on your family and bless each of them richly! RIP Chuck ... and THANK YOU! Chuck Brown is DC, period.
June 04, 2012
Chuck Brown music will always be in my heart and memories. I enjoyed my young adult days grooving to the beat of go-go and Chuck was definitely the "Godfather". RIP Chuck
June 04, 2012
With deepest sympathy and condolences to the family. Chuck was great person and loved by many. So sorry for your lost and much prayer's go out to you and your family in this time of need. God Bless!

To the immediate and extended family and community of Chuck Brown

May God breathe his Grace upon you and surround and keep you in Perfect Peace.
I'm a native Washingtonian and regretfully never afforded myself the time to see Chuck Brown perform. I was looking forward to seeing him at The Nerriweather Piost Pavillion
Rest in Peace Chuck
Keep the music Going in Heaven.......
June 02, 2012
I was 17 when chuck use to practice at a friends house , name boss man he had the block rockin. Chuck brown is truly going to be missed and to the family you had a great DAD. He loved what he did.
June 02, 2012
Thanks for sharing your husband and dad. R.I.P Chuck Brown. Your musical sound has inspired all ages. I am a native of Washington, DC. born and raised in the DMV. I just want to say thank you for being a true inspiration and giving back. I can honestly say from experience that you are a very humble man. My ex-husband and I ran into u at Bennigan's off silver hill rd. back in 96, although he was born and raised in a small town called Dublin, Ga. he immediately recognized u. When we approached u, not only did you sign an autograph but u talked to us for at least 45min, lookin just as cool and smooth as always. I have never forgotten that. I hope u and Lil Benny add a lil flavor to some Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, Gerald Levert, and Teddy Pendergrass. I will continue to play Go Go no matter where i am and i will make contributions to your foundation. You are missed and today I finally mastered the Chuck Brown Line Dance. Love u Chuck Brown and give my big sister Kitty a hug. She use to tear it up to your song Run Joe.
June 01, 2012
I am going to miss you! I know you are making beautiful music for the Lord.
June 01, 2012
Our thoughts and prayers to the Brown family. Thank you so much in sharing Chuck with us for many years. Like many it feels like a family member we lost. But Check was family to us all in DC. He carried himself as if he was family. His heart was larger than life itself. I pray that the Lord will comfort and guide you all. We love you all.

June 01, 2012
First I want to sincerely thank the Brown family for sharing their "invaluable treasure" with us for so many decades! I will proudly proclaim myself to be a "Chuck Brown junkie"!! His music and extremely kind ways were addictive! No one who ever heard his music or had the pleasure of meeting this GIANT, could ever get enough. Although I did not know him personally, when I had the opportunity to meet him, he treated me as if he had known me all my life. Very rare to meet a SuperStar of his stature and come away with an experience you'd never want to forget!! So thank you again family and sleep well Godfather, sleep well...
June 01, 2012
God Bless the Brown family Chuck Brown will be truly missed I went to my first go-go and Chuck was on stage, I will never forget that moment Love u Chuck, Rest in Peace

I like to send my prayer's and condolences to the family Of Chuck Brown. I remember Chuck from the 70's and use to see him often around N.W. and S.E. D.C.I was walking to the store harmonizing and singing with some friends in the band getting ready for a talent show Chuck heard us stopped and listened and said great, but he then told me I was cute and to try a verse this way. I did and for this I am forever grateful. I had the chance to perform with Chuck once back in the day. Such a teacher and giving and loving man. Chuck you will truely be missed. Peace and Love family always.

May 31, 2012
As a teen in DC in the 70s, I got to witness the go-go era from the very beginning. Chuck was indeed the real "OG". DC and Go-Go has truly lost a legend. More than a performer, Chuck was humble, gracious to his fans, and always had a smile. Unlike many artists, Chuck was approachable. I can only imagine the loss that the family is feeling. My prayers go out to you, take solace in knowing that he is now sitting high and looking low, and still grinning from cheek to cheek. God bless you and thank you for sharing Chuck with us. We will be eternally grateful.
May 31, 2012

My condolences to the Brown Family, may God continue to bless you through these difficult times. I remember when I was young, my sister; our girlfriends and I would walk all the way up Georgia Avenue in NW, DC to see Chuck Brown and The Soul Searchers play at the Cream Bo Palace. Chuck was cranking way back then with “We Need Some Money” and they were tossing dollars bills off the stage. I will never forget that or Chuck Brown, his legacy will live on forever in our hearts R.I.P. Chuck (God Father of Go-Go). God needed another angel to crank with Lil Benny so he called you home. Go, Go will never be the same but, will continue to live on in memory of you. Gone but never forgotten “Wind Me Up Chuck Baby”!!!

Dear Brown Family - I was absolutely stunned and saddened to hear about Mr. Brown's passing. Words can't express how much his music meant to me. Thank you for sharing him with the public and for allowing us to refer to him as Godfather, Pops, Uncle, etc. He truly felt like family.

Wishing you peace, comfort, and strength as you heal in the days to come.

Chuck will be greatly missed.No one as I am aware of could start and jam a Go-Go party as Chuck.What moves through us is a silence,a quiet sadness,a longing for you to get well,one more word,one more song.We must remember not just that you passed from creation,most of all that you lived.Your life,songs,music and performances gave us memories so beautiful that we will never forget."LOVE"....FOREVER....REST IN PEACE "KING OF GO-GO."

HE INVITED US ON THE BOAT WHILE IT SAT,AND WE ALL TALKED FOR AWHILE.THEN I CAUGHT THE BUS BACK TO D.C.. WITH MY HEAD IN THE CLOUD, THAT MOMENT WAS PRICELESS. AS IN ANYTHING CHUCK HAD TO DO WITH.

WOW! Godfather Chuck Brown, don't give a …..@ has gone home to be with the Lord, Little Benny has greeted him and now they are in heaven and the angel are shouting “Wind me up Chuck and Benny”.
My heart is heavy, but my spirit is rejoicing I thank God for allowing me to meet a man who was so HUMBLE!
Chuck's humbleness is what I loved the must about him, as well as his music; see his music was all about LOVE & HAPPINESS which helped you understand why he was so humble.
Oh, how they are rejoicing in heaven just to see that beautiful smile that Chuck had, When Chuck smiled it made you smile right back at him, Chuck's smile made you forget about all your troubles.
I'm a Chuck Brown die heart if the show was in the DMV area I was there since back in the day at the Metro Club on Bladensburg Road, Safeway BBQ, Stone Soul Picnic if Chuck was there I was there as well.

R.I.P Chuck because if we live our life's the way you lived yours being kind, loving, humble and grateful we will see you again when God calls us home.

Much Love and Prayers to the Brown Family.

Chuck Brown was more than the Godfather of Go-Go. He was a great person.
Andre Carter ( Clinton, MD )
May 29, 2012
To my dearest family,
Some things I would like to say,
But first of all, to let you know
That I arrived ok.

I'm writing this from Heaven
Where I dwell with God above,
here there's no more tears or sadness
There is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy
Just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you
Every morning, noon, and night.

That day that I had to leave you
When my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me
And He said, I welcome you.

It's good to have you back again
You were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest; family
They'll be here later on.

I need you here so badly
As part of my big plan.
There's so much that we have to do
To help our mortal man.

Then God gave me a list of things
He wished for me to do.
And foremost on that list of mine
Is to watch and care for you.

And I will be beside you
Every day and week and year.
And when you're sad,
I'm standing there to wipe away the tears.

And when you lie in bed at night
The days chore put to flight
God and I are closest to you
In the middle of the night.

” When you think of my life on earth
And all those loving years,
Because you're only human
They're bound to bring you tears

But do not be afraid to cry
It does relieve the pain.
Remember, there would be no flowers
Unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you
Of all that God has planned,
But if I were to tell you,
You would not understand.

And to my many friends trust,
God knows what it best.
I'm still not very far away from you
I'm just beyond the crest.

And now I am contented that my life,
It was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along the way
I made someone smile.

When you're walking down the street
And you've got me on your mind,
I'm walking in your footsteps
Only half a step behind.

And when you feel that gentle breeze
Or the wind upon your face,
That's me giving you a great big hug
Or just a soft embrace.

And when it's time for you to go
From that body to be free,
Remember, you're not going,
You are coming here to me.

And I will always love you
from that land way up above.
I'll be in touch again soon,

P.S. GOD SENDS HIS LOVE!

My prayers go out to the Brown family. Chuck Brown was a very talented man and I've been a fan of his for as long as I can remember. His music from the 70s still cranks like his newer material. His was the only band I'd go see live...he'll be missed
May 25, 2012
My deepest condolences to the Brown Family. Your daughter's words asking us to remember you were a family man, really resonated. Bless all of you and thank you for sharing your father with us.

I started listening to Chuck Brown and the Soul Searcher's distinct sound while attending the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in the early eighties, so generously shared by a dear friend and fellow student from DC. I guess it was very much a part of the reason I wanted to become a Washingtonian. DC draws you in as smoothly as the "Go Go" sound does, so full of love and warmth, giving energy to to go on and on. All I think of when I think of you, "Chuck Brown" is pure joy and so much love while moving to such smooth rhythms.

Peace be with your soul Chuck and with your Family always.
May 25, 2012

To the Brown family you all are in my prayers. I grew up going to see Chuck and listening to his music. Not just the gogo but all his music i had the pleasure of meeting and talking to him for the first time when i was 12 he was such a loving and caring person. The last time i saw him he gave me the biggest hug and said he missed me because he hadnt seen me in awhile. That made me feel so special that he remembered me. Im truly gonna miss seeing him but his music and advice he gave me will be with me forever! Rest In Peace Uncle Chuck Gone But Will Never be Forgotton!
May 25, 2012
Chuck Brown had many fans in this world and many were touched by his music. He will be missed greatly, but he is now gone from his labor to his reward. Jesus said that if you believe in him, you shall have everlasting life. He is a rewarder of those who dilligently seek him. Chuck, thanks for the memories!
May 25, 2012
I grew up in NW DC right around the corner from Ben's Chili Bowl and attended Mackin HS in the early 80s. I can only appreciate you and your style as a person and musically.

May 22, 2012
Chuck Brown leaves a great legacy as a Father, Grandfather, Uncle and Washington institution. I have had the pleasure of partying to his music since the age of 7. Bustin Loose was my introduction to GO GO. I remember my grandmother and her sisters doing the rock in a line @ our family reunion in the summer of 79'. I would always look forward to seeing him at the end of the summer @ the Ronald Reagan Building and I saw him this past NYE @ the Hilton in Alexandria. I am glad that I made the decision to go see him not knowing that it would be one of his final performances. The Washington GO-GO scene will NEVER be the same without Chuck, but now it will be up to Sugar Bear and Chuck's children and grandchildren to carry on his musical legacy. DC LOVES YOU and and we will miss you. I would also like to extend my condolences to the Brown Family. No one can replace what you have lost. Please take comfort in knowing that your father, grandfather and uncle was loved and respected by not only you but his Washington, D.C. extended family as well.
May 22, 2012
We Love You.

I can't say that I've been where you are, but know that you are not alone. You have his many memories and love that will never die. Chuck's music will never die. Go-go will never die. I always loved go-go music because you can't help but move when you hear the beat. The heavenly band just got a little more rhythm now that Little Benny and Chuck are there. Just like you said, Chuck, "Can't Nobody Do Me Like Jesus" because He's my friend. Enjoy your new life with your friend and save a spot for me. RIP, Chuck.

What I remember the most about Chuck is at all his shows when dudes tried to hog the front...Chuck would say...ALL MY LADIES TO FRONT FELLA'S...LET MY LADIES IN THE FRONT...I'm gonna miss you Chuck B. Nobody did it or will ever do it like you.....

I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family, friends and fans of Chuck Brown. He was just special. I happened to have attended several of his concerts and can't express the warm vibes received from Chuck himself and the band. The positive vibes were contagious. Everyone was on one happy accord. The whole experience gave me"happy feelings". I want to thank Chuck Brown for his contribution to society.....Go-go music. Gone, but never to be forgotten because his music won't let us forget! May he rest in peace as he joins the ranks of all the other musicians that are up in heaven busing loose. What a party!

My Condolscences to the entire Brown Family. My heart sunk the day Chuck passed. I would the Brown family to know that, Chuck Brown was & will always BE DC. I grow up in DC went to the public schools from the 70's thru 80's. He was the reason that Go Go ran thru & will always run thru my veins. Rest In Sweet Peace Chuck, tell Lil' Benny What's Up! You are my Godfather forever...
May 22, 2012
my first time seeing chuck was back in the 1980s at the washington closium, Cherrys, Dunbar, etc, when it was Chuck Brown and the Soul Searchers i told all my friends that watch wind me up chuck is going to live on forever while other bands come and go and that did come to past. Chuck use to live across the street from us when he was living in Virginia. I want everyone to know that there will never be another Chuck he cateor to the young and old that was the unique thing about him his music didn't have a age limited. I personally thing that there should be a statue made in DC honoring him. Big Mike from Appropriate Entertainment who is my brother had you play at his birthday party back in 1995. Chuck We Love You and Chuck thanks for all the good times you gave us in the washington dc area.

May 22, 2012
Oh! How I remember Chuck. I want to give my condolence to the Brown family, my prayers are with you. I know Chuck has gone to rest in peace with many angels lying beside him. I know he was a saved man. He sung about life experiences that I believe everyone could relate to, but mostly about the good life. There is a great message in all of his music. I could tell through his music he really cared for everyone and just loved people just by how he brought people together in a good way. He wanted for everyone to be happy and by listen and dancing to his go go beats and let me not forget his passion for jazz, he was able to lift up peoples sprites. If you really listen to his lyrics, you would say the same thing too. I just miss him so much and always will. Love, Debra Nelson
May 22, 2012
My condolence to the family. We loved him too. He will always be remembered.
May 22, 2012
YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS...YOUR MUSIC WILL REMAIN THE GO GO SOUND OF DC...AND UR MEMORIES WILL ALWAYS BE OUR THOUGHTS OF GOOD TIMES....REMEMBERING , YOU AINT GOT THE THING IF YOU AINT GOT THAT GO GO THING....LOVE AND MISS YOU ALWAYS ....

Mr. Brown.

I recall hearing my aunties and uncles rocking your music. I was young but was captivated by your voice. I thought you were "COOL" however when I was old enough to see one of your shows I was hooked by your class, style and swag as we call it now. I am saddened by your passing but I know you lived a long wonderful life and you will never be forgotten in the DC Metro area. Love you Chuck Baby.

May 22, 2012
I grew up in DC and honestly can't remember a time when Chuck Brown and his music wasn't a part of my life. I am most grateful that I had the opportunity to share my love for Chuck with my children by taking them to see him live at the outdoor concerts he performed at the Reagan Building, when he performed at the John Thompson III Foundation Community day a few years back, and most recently when he historically was honored by and performed with the NSO last summer on the lawn of the Capital. Chuck's legacy will live on not just because of his music but of the life he lived and the love he showed for this city. My heart is heavy and my thoughts and prayers go out to the Brown family. Just know that Chuck left an impact on this city that won't be matched any time soon. I'm most grateful that his fans gave him his flowers when he was alive because we really love Chuck Baby! Thank you so much to his family for sharing him with us all these years. Chuck will be missed but we will keep his memory alive.

May 22, 2012
My deepest condolences to the family. I have known the Brown family since childhood. I grew up in Deanwood with Chuck's siblings. I have been a Chuck Brown fan from the Soul Searchers to present. Chuck has been an institution to the DC area. I was just thinking how Chuck Brown has entertained and been loved by 3 generations in my family. My teenage grandchildren were jamming to Chuck Brown's music. That's how powerful his institution of GoGo has affected this city. Its a culture that has lived the tests of time. He has been loved and admired by so many. He gave love right back. He always had time to talk or sign an autograph and loved to tell his story. I remember seeing him perform at the Union Station for the Donnie Simpson Show. I made and gave to him a giftbasket made up of a Tuxedo Ice Bucket that included a bottle of Champagne and other delectables. Chuck was so appreciative. We laughed and talked about growing up in Deanwood. He never forgot his roots. Chuck and his music will always be loved and will continue to be enjoyed leaving us with memories of first parties, Senior Proms, boat rides, meeting loved ones at his events and the list goes on. May God continue to hold and bring comfort to his family. May he rest in peace.
May 22, 2012
Chuck will be greatly missed, he was my number 1 artist know one will ever take his place!!! Rest now an keep cliose eye out on Lil Benny while your having a block party on that Gold paved street, where.everyday is Sunday!!!!

Thanks to God be the glory and for most for another 50th birthday today! From a musician myself to another, music has away of touching the hearts of those that are attractive to its sound. A man who touch the souls of all generations. But mainly, he knew who Jesus is in his music before he left this world. Words of encouragement to the family. Always remember no one can replace or erase whaz been treasured in your hearts of a legion. Gods word says to be absent from the body is to be presence into the lord. Somehow , someway you'll see him again someday. Never had the chance of meeting him or playin with him but do know musicians that have played with him. One I do know is nolonger with us my good friend and ballou alumni Little Benny. They both were great icons to DCs own. One thing for sure were can agreement in, Can't Nobody Do Me Like Jesus, He is my friend! Chuck Brown said it best! R.I.P my friend! Brown family, be strong and encourage. Be blessed!
May 22, 2012
I'VE BEEN A FAN OF CHUCK BROWN SINCE THE SOUL SEARCHERS. I ATTENDED AS MANY CONCERTS AS I COULD FROM A TEENAGER TO AN ADULT AND NOW AS A MOM/GRANDMOTHER.

To the Brown Family,
The outpouring of love shared for the loss of your loved one is truly a reflection of the love he gave to us always. We'll forever miss him and with heavy hearts, we'll always love him. There's was no need for a farewell tour of all the venues Chuck graced because, he gave all he had and then some every performance. I'll forever remember Chuck, he was "Classic and Timeless". God called upon him for his next performance and I know it's already sold out. If we listen closely, we'll hear "Melodies From Heaven" in a way only Chuck can deliver it (keeping it Go-Go). May he Party in Heaven, I can't image him ever resting...
Love ya Chuck,
The Judge

I am a native Washingtonian, and I grew up on go-go music. I remember hearing Chuck Brown when I was a teenager, and I was either fourteen or fifteen years old when "Bustin Loose," came out. America called Dick Clark, "the oldest American teenager," but DC had Chuck Brown, who was our "Oldest American Teenager." He will be sorely missed. Rest in Go-Go Peace Chuck Brown.

May 20, 2012
Chuck you have been a part of my life since I was 14 years old. I remember everyone in the neighborhood talking about this new music called Go-Go. You were then called Chuck Brown and the Soul Searchers. You were playing at the Maverick Room at 4th and R.I. Avenue, NE. Not being old enough to get in...I long with a couple friends snuck in the back door unnoticed because everyone was so tuned into your music. After that I followed you to many of your performances throughout the years. There have been great go-go performers since but no one compares to a Chuck Brown moment. After meeting you and having you perform at a couple venues later in my years...I came to love you as many others, respect you, and your music is undeniably the best go-go to ever come out of DC. I can here you saying my name at my birthday "hey Monica...it's your birthday." I love you Chuck and may God rest your soul. You are now leading the go-go choir with Lil Benny, Footz and Fat Rodney...may you all R.I.P.

Rest in peace! I first heard your music when I was around 10 years old and have loved it since day one. Last year I traveled from Atlanta to Annapolis to hear Chuck play live.

My name is Milton and I had been a fan of his, since back in Sousa Junior High School. I had got a chance to go see Chuck perform, after I graduated from McKinley Tech High School at the Black Hole on Georgia Avenue, NW in Washington, DC. I used to go there starting back in 1985, just about every Saturday night. I remember seeing him close up in person on Pennsylvania Ave., NW, at the Old Post Pavillion. We was talking and I told him how much I admire his music growing up and he was an inspiration to me like a father figure. I was joking with him, saying I want some of Chuck Brown money. That when the commercial break came on 102.3 fm when he was giving away some money to his fans. He told me he had a concert to go to later that night in Bowie, MD and ask me was I coming. I told him na Chuck, not tonight, man. If it was on a weekend I will be there. I can't party like that no more. I told him I was there at the Kennedy Center, when he performed and it was like old times. He said ok come and see me on the weekend when I perform, again. I said ok. He then, ask me my name. I said Milton. He said ok Milt Tilt I will put you out there tonight. We laugh and I said oh Chuck you going to put me on blast out there tonight, man. He said yea. I said ok I will talk to you later and I went back to work. I'm so glad that I got to talk to him that day. I think that was in the year of 2010. I forgot what month. I believe he received an award, from the National Endowment for the Arts that day and 102.3 fm radio station was out there. I just walk that day to get a stamp to mail something and saw him. That really made my day. I will truly miss him. I don't know if I will ever go to another go-go, again. I from the old school and he was and is the greatest godfather and godfather of go- go there will ever be. I will truly miss him. I really believe he live his life to the fullest. Rest in Peace, My father, Brother, Friend and Fan, Chuck Brown. You can now perform to God and his Heavenly Angels.
May 19, 2012

May 19, 2012
Rest in Paradise Mr. Brown... you breathed life into my city and gave it life. Your music is your legacy and I will treasure it always.
May 19, 2012
To The Brown Family:

I was deeply saddened and heartbroken to hear of the passing of the Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown. I've been listening to his music for a long time. A few years ago, I saw him in person for the first time at the Warner Theater in D.C. He made a guest appearance at a play called Love Overboard. I was so thrilled to see him. He looked good and sounded good. He always struck me as a very nice gentleman and very down to earth. I loved him and his music. He is an icon. He will be deeply missed. I cherish the memories. May God bless and comfort you and may Chuck rest in peace.
May 19, 2012
I Paula, is a over 30 year Chuck Brown fan and I am age 44. Every birthday party he had, I made sure to buy tickets to go. I met my first boyfriend at a Chuck Brown Howard Theatre Concert. My first boyfriend passed away unexpectantly January 2012, so, I lost that legacy of my past and now Chuck Brown is gone closing that chapter. I saw Chuck Brown every year at the Barbecue Battle many times not arriving until his time to come on stage. My mom is a Chuck Brown fan and she has danced endlessly since his death to his musical tributes to exhaustion on the dance floor. She dances so hard, I pray she doesn't pass out that's how much she loves his music.My daughter who is age 9 is a Chuck Brown fan and a old soul said, I cant believe he's gone because she was a fan of Teena Marie and Donna Summer music as a young child that's all she was exposed to is older music of quality from the past. I will miss Wind Me Up Chuck and I am glad his legacy and music will never die and live on in the heart of his fans. Blessings to his family during this time.
May 19, 2012
Thanks for all the wonderful memories Chuck

Mr. Chuck Brown was an inspiration . Still at age 75 he was hosting events to make those of us in this world happy he was doing God's work, entertaining and bringing diverse backgrounds and cultures together. I remember last summer we followed Chuck and his band to Richmond for Friday's at Sunset even after the sun went down 107 degree weather Chuck came out and showed them how good and how dedicated of a musician he was. I thank God for Chuck Brown and his family. Thank you Brown family and friends for sacrificing you husband father uncle cousin and friend so he was able to share his gifts with the world. I'll always hear the set start with the crowd shouting "wind me up Chuck" and never for get his grace and you the family. Many blessings and continued love as you go through this time.


Very Respectfully,

DAW

May 18, 2012
Chuck Brown was the innovator of DC's music incorporating all his life experiences from NC to DC. Chuck was always an innovator. He took multiple genres of music Disco, Jazz, Calypso, Reggae, R&B and Swing. Chuck blended all of these sounds together just right like chef at a royal function. Chuck soon found the right groove and let the drums and percussion take over and started talking like a Master of Ceremonies at an Ali-Frasier fight. This was during the time a normal bank would take a break. Chuck would continue one song after another as he amazed his audience calling out their names and locations Lincoln Heights, Barry Farms, Whaler Place, Simple City, River Terrace, Landover, Palmer Park, etc. Everyone felt as if they were connected at a GO-GO. Chuck Brown always said his people not just his fans. This newly formed talking of music with a break beat with high drums and percussion was dubbed the go-go sound. The Sound of DC. My last experience with Chuck was at the DC Grammy Awards Party. Chuck always greeted every one with his smile not matter what was going on..... I will always remember Chuck was always there to support Go-Go Music and he was name "the Godfather of Go-Go'. Chuck you will be miss by us all but your music and spirit of hope and outreach to the youth to do positive things will live forever. The STR MUSIC GROUP Family.
May 18, 2012
Prayers and condolences to your family from our family. We thank you for sharing him with the world. He was an inspiration to a lot of talented people. He and his music will be truly missed.

Good night "MR" Brown. You earned and deserve the title of MR. You will live forever. Thanks for the music and many "workouts" at the go-gos. Prayer and Blessings to your family who knew and loved you best. We knew OF, and loved the total essence, style, and grace of you. RIP.

Chuck we are going to miss your body, but your spirit you have left with all of us who love you.
To the family, I pray that you allow the LORD to comfort you at this time of your lost and help you get through the grieving process. In times like this it's good think about all the good times. The LORD says our good times out weigh the bad times, and HE will not put more on us than we can bare. Celebrate his life. He lives in all of us who love him. When I think of the times I've spent in Chucks presence I only remember him making me feel happy! If I was sad about something going on in my life, and I went to the Go-Go to hear Chuck, my spirit would always get Happy. You his family, were blessed to have been close to such kindred spirit. And absent from the body means present with the LORD. He was only lent to us. Now is resting in the bosom of the Lamb.

With love and sincerity,

Chuck Brown was go-go, he was DC. Growing up in the DC area (DMV) that was what we were into not really rap music. Chuck's music is timeless. You can listen to his music from the 70's and it still sounds fresh. My heart goes out to his family. It is like I lost a family member yesterday because I respected everything he did.

"Bustin' Loose"= Being Free.

You bestowed so many "Black~n~Brown" musical blessings upon listeners' lives. Your concerts were, indeed, a call~&~response chorus in the urban forest (not jungle as some mockingly said)~~~~Church of the Go~Go Generations (the "s" ending is intentional). As long as listeners forage in that forest for a soundscape the genius & genesis of Go~Go will serve as icons & instruments of inspiration.

I remember hearing You when I attended Howard Law. By laying down the law of notes & chords, You brought body moving order to the campus!

You "Go~Go" Chuck Brown. Rest in Peace, after having given us musical pieces in which the only rest we seek is between beats.

To: Mr. Chuck Brown Family,
It will be the little things
that you will remember,
the quiet moments,
the smiles, the laughter.
And although it may seem
hard right now,
it will be the memories
of these little things
that help to push
away the pain
and bring the smiles
back again.

With Loving Memories
God Bless,
