Remembering James- The Life and Music of James Brown, a 90 minute musical, which tells the story of The Godfather of Soul from 1951-1968, James Brown. Spanning nearly two decades of his monumental career, you’ll see how a divided country, the growing Civil Rights movement and the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. shaped the artists’ work. A 8-piece band accompanies the show, bringing the passion of his music alive while offering a message of hope to a grief-stricken nation looking for a moment of healing and celebration.
