AllMusic Review by

In the 1980s, the Washington, DC bandleader Chuck Brown pioneered the percussive, hypnotically swinging dance genre known as go-go, conducting marathon all-night dance sessions with a band whose energy and sheer musical power was legendary. Brown's 2007 We're About the Business finds the master more relaxed but no less funky, with insistent jams such as "Love Nationwide" and the vintage-sounding "We Come to Party" proving he still has a lien on the dancefloor.
