Living Funk Legends
Fred Wesley & The New JB's

Monday 22nd May

Fred Wesley and James Brown’s backing band, The JBs, head to Jazz Cafe for a rare lesson in the history of funk.

Beginning his career with Ike and Tina Turner, he later became musical director, arranger and composer for the Godfather of funk himself, James Brown, and arranged for and played with Parliament-Funkadelic.

Wesley became the world’s most famous sideman through his work with Brown, defining the language of funk for years to come, alongside working with Ray Charles, Van Morrison, Usher, Pee Wee Ellis and more. Join us in the company of a living legend this May.
