Chuck Brown Women's T-shirt

Go-Go music.  If you’re from the DMV then we don’t have to say another word.  If you’re not then you need a little schooling on this genre of Funk.  Go-Go burst on the scene in the 70s.  Born and bred in Washington, D.C., Go-Go is heavily influenced by horns, percussions and live audience call and response lyrics.  The Godfather of this music is Chuck Brown.  Chuck put Go-Go on the map nationwide in 1978 with his hit “Bustin’ Loose.”  With is band, The Soul Searchers, Chuck went on to record regional hits like “Run Joe,” “We Need Some Money” and the party anthem “Wind Me Up, Chuck.”  Chuck Brown and The Soul Searchers paved the way for bands like Trouble Funk, Experience Unlimited (remember “Da Butt” from Spike Lee’s School Daze?) and Rare Essence.  They also influence the sounds of R&B and Hip-Hop artists like Salt N Pepa and Jill Scott.  Chuck died in 2012 but his sound lives forever. 

The signature Chuck Brown and The Soul Searchers graphic is printed on a soft 4.3 oz. premium tri-blend t-shirt.  The shirt runs a little small so if you like a looser fit, order the next larger size.

Wind Me Up, Chuck!

The T-shirt

The t-shirt we use to print the designs is from a company call Next Level Apparel.  They make some of the best t-shirts in the apparel biz.  Our base t-shirt is their premium tri-blend crew neck t-shirt.   This t-shirt is a mashup of 50% polyester, 25% combed ring spun and 25% rayon.  That mix makes for three things:  an extremely soft t-shirt that drapes nicely with a vintage-type look.   So you’re getting a cool looking shirt that feels great.  The t-shirt weighs 4.3 ounces.  So you’re not wearing a bulletproof vest but a mid-weight garment.  And since the fabric is mostly polyester and rayon, there is little, if any, shrinkage.  Now the t-shirt does run a little small so if you like a roomer fit, please select the next size above what you normally wear.

Also, we don’t believe in offering you a one-style-fits-all or “unisex” t-shirt (whatever that is).  We give the fellas and ladies a t-shirt that’s specifically made for them and their unique features.  If a particular style of t-shirt isn’t available for a gender then we’ll let you know and recommend a size in that shirt that may accommodate you. 

In the future, we’ll rollout different styles of tees like a scoop neck (for that off-the-shoulder Flashdance look), long sleeve, hoody and ¾ sleeve raglan so you’ll have a variety of options to choose from year round.

Care Instructions

We recommend turning your t-shirt inside out when washing.  Please machine wash in cold water with like colors.  It’s best to hang dry but it’s cool if you tumble dry on low setting.  Please do not iron on the decoration.
