The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) remembers local musician Reggie “Polo” Burwell, who passed away Tuesday, November 26. Burwell was the lead vocalist for the go-go group TCB.
“Burwell and TCB brought go-go to a new generation of listeners,” said Lionell Thomas, Executive Director of DCCAH. “The Commission extends our sympathies to Burwell’s family and all of his fans. Go-go is a musical style distinct to Washington, and we celebrate his contributions as one of its leading artists.”
Arrangements for a public funeral are being made and will be announced by TCB.
