Go-Go is a type of music that originated in Washington DC, consisting of strong drum beats and loose feel instrumentals with often sampled vocals it has so roots in reggae

A music that was originated by chuck brown in the late 1960's in Washington D.C. that gets its name "gogo" because the music beat never stops but keeps going and songs are transitioned into one another without ever stopping the beat. Very popular, neighborhood oriented music in D.C. and its metro area with nearly 200 bands playing regularly. Music is played live on a variety of instruments. Most important instruments include the congos, timbales/roto-toms, drums, cowbell, keyboards, bass and lead guitar.
Chuck Brown, Rare Essence, Junkyard Band, Northeast Groovers, Backyard Band, Hot Cold Sweat Band are some of the greatest gogo bands ever

type of music characterized by alot of bass, drums, keyboard and other instruments. Re-makes of other songs. In my opinion it is the best type of music that is not mainstream. originated in Washington DC, popular in the tri-city area (Virginia, DC, Maryland) accept Baltimore coz we dont claim Bmore coz dey just some bammas.

In my opinion the best music thats isnt really mainstream.I mean you have people who know about and people who dont and badmouth it.It uses so many instruments depending on the song.Pacman poppin by TCB for example mainly uses song effects and drums in the background,its a good gogo song but it certainly shouldnt be used as a prime example of gogo music as a whole like maybe 98 dopejam by BYB should.In a gogo song there maybe rappin, talkin, shoutouts, or they let the beat ride out.In a gogo song for the most part they shout out hoods in the metro area such as Sursum Cordas, 36 & Minnesota,Trinidad ave, 31-31, KDY, etc and local gangs such as Superstar honnies, X-rated honnies, or Most wanted honnies.I love gogo to death and byb tcb ucb raw image and rare essence, ccb, familiar faces, fatal attraction, and MOB are my favorite bands.If you want to purchase gogo cds go to either papalace.com or gogocds.4t.com or if you live in the metro area go to Kemp Mill music in Marlow Heights near where I stay at to get them.UD I dont mean to advertise for these businesses because I dont work for either im just informing people where to buy cds in case they are interested.Also if you stay near DC and you read this you know why my name on here is what it is.
TCB ,Mike Jones, and Paul Wall performed at the DC Tunnel and at Club Levels this weekend so you know gogo brings in bank around here if swishahouse niggas gettin involved cause they aint cheap.
