ST. PETERSBURG - Morris Day & The Time, the Minneapolis funk unit that catapulted onto the national scene in the ‘80s, will perform at The Mahaffey Theater on Friday, July 11, at 8 p.m.
Formed in 1981 by Prince, The Time went on to release four albums with Morris Day, each a solid slice of jammy, rock-infused ‘80s funk, generally light and humorous in tone, strongly influenced by Parliament, James Brown and, of course, Prince. Their hits include “Jungle Love,” “The Bird,” “777-9311,” “Get It Up,” “Gigolos Get Lonely Too,” “Jerk Out,” "The Walk" and “Cool.”
