The Godfather of Soul. Mr. Dynamite. Soul Brother No. 1. The Hardest Working Man in Show Business. By any name, James Brown put on a live show like no one else before or since. Get close to the funk perfection that was as Lloyd Diamond leads this James Brown tribute show at New York’s B.B. King Blues Club. He’ll bring Brown’s energy, soul, sound, spirit – and signature dance moves – to live recreations of hits like “Sex Machine,” “Hot Pants,” “The Payback,” “Make It Funky” and “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag.” Adding to the authenticity will be J.B.’s original bassist Fred Thomas, who worked with Brown for more than 30 years.
