The Double Faces Band originated in Charlottesville to create a sound that other bands weren't bringing to the area. Double Faces play Go-go, a subgenre associated with funk that originated in the Washington, D.C., area during the mid-1960s to late-'70s. It remains primarily popular in the area as a uniquely regional music style. Go-go blends funk, rhythm and blues, and early hip-hop, with a focus on lo-fi percussion instruments and funk-style jamming in place of dance tracks, although some sampling is used. As such, it is primarily a dance hall music with an emphasis on live audience call and response. Go-go rhythms are also incorporated into street percussion.
