"P Funk Allstar RonKat Spearman is Authorized to play the Funk.
RonKat is a grammy nominated/song writer of the year winner. He was a vocalist/musician with George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic from 2000 to 2010. Touring the world with GCPF has enriched his talents and pushed his skills to even higher levels of achievement. RONKAT's music is a combination of funk and rock. Bridging unbelievably tasteful elements of multi-genres in a musical blend of pure magic Katdelic is Original New Funk blended with traditional P Funk grooves. Katdelic began as RonKat's off the road project for the past few years but as of 2010 (with George Clinton's Blessing) Ronkat devoted all of his time and work to work on his D.O.T.M.S. (Dance On The Mothership) CD .Ronkat picks up on the incredibly high standard set forth by George Clinton during the 1970’s with Funkadelic. He takes this framework and contextures it to a new paradigm of futuristic jubilance. Dr. Funkenstein himself show up in this and personally hands over to Ronkat the keys to the ever-mystical and Fonk-N on Mothership." -RonKat.net
"Just when you thought the funk could go no deeper, it just did. Ronkat Spearman has delivered the best funk record of the year. It crackles, bubbles, grinds and oozes with so much sonic groove. Ronkat is one of the new breed of multi-instrumentalist, producer-visionaries out of the bubbling Bay Area Funk scene. Every…track….rocks. All songs written, produced, performed, engineered, mixed, vocals and lyrics by Ronkat Spearman. Ronkat’s genius perpetually serves up one good groove after another the not only packs a dance floor, it challenges the listener to soul-search and self-examine through uncanny thought-provoking lyrical imagery. This Kat has something to say. There’s nothing harder to stop than an idea whose time has come to pass, and Katdelic is what time it is"-Bustin Bob, TFS.com
