Legends of Funk - with the Northern JB's

Friday, 20 March 2020 - 8:00pm
 
The Northern JB’s pay reverence to the pioneering behemoths of heavy funk, The JB’s. “A Tribute to The JB’s” explores the musical legacy of this groundbreaking outfit which provided the foundation for future generations of music. From direct offspring groups such as Parliament/Funkadelic to modern pop and hip-hop, The JB’s are still leaving shockwaves that can be felt by the industry to this day.
 
 
Formed in 1970, The JB’s were James Brown’s backing band featuring such colossal heavyweights as Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker and Bootsy Collins. Outside of touring with “The Godfather of Soul” the band recorded a large anthology of some of the funkiest music ever to be released, including hits like “Sex Machine”, “Pass the Peas”, “Gimme Some More”, “Doing it to Death” and “Damn Right I Am Somebody”.
 
Come on in and see the beating heart of the James Brown mania. ‘Legends of Funk’ is a jam packed show that’ll have you foot stomping and dancing the night away as you celebrate the awesome force of nature that was the JB’s!
 
 
The Northern JB's are: 
Ciaran Diston - Trumpet
Tom I'Anson - Trombone
Daniel Brunskill - Saxes
Connal Mulvenna - Guitar
Fergus Quill - Bass
Joshua Smout - Drums
