Chuck Brown (1936-2012) had a great impact upon the development of Go-Go music, a highly percussive style of music emanating from Southeast Washington, D.C. and Prince Georges County, Maryland. Known as the “Godfather of Go-go,” Brown ‘s most popular songs, including “Run Joe” and “Bustin’ Loose,” brought Go-Go to an international audience.
