The James Brown Family Birthday Bash is back! The show will honor both James Brown and Sharon Jones, who was born one day after Mr. Brown in May.
Like last year, the festival will raise money for an amazing nonprofit: James Brown Academy of Musik Pupils (JAMP). This organization is part of the James Brown Family Foundation and teaches local children music through the music of James Brown. JAMP is instructed by the music director of The James Brown Band. The JAMP Masters will again hit the stage in 2017 to showcase their amazing talents for the hometown crowd— the highlight for many concertgoers at last year’s event.
