It’s official! The JB Xmas Party is on!

Let’s Unite The Whole World At Christmas!

December 25, the day previously known as Christmas will now be known as James Brown Day. This year marks 5 years since the passing of “The Godfather of Soul,” “Mr. Dynamite,” “Soul Brother Number One”, “The Hardest Working Man in Show Business”, “The Minister for New New Super Heavy Funk” aka. “The Originator”, “The Hitman”,  James Brown (May 3, 1933 – December 25, 2006). To celebrate the occasion and pay our funky respect Northside is teaming with the Espy to bring you “A Night To Remember James Brown”.

We’ve pulled together a dedicated team of JB disciples for the event, collectively known as the JBDJs, including Ransom, Koolism’s Danielsan, PBS’s Manchild and Zack Rampage, plus some other mothers… Look forward to a long night of James Brown hits, James Brown Productions (The JBs, Bobby Byrd, Bill Doggett, Hank Ballard, Marva Whitney, Vicki Anderson/Myra Barnes, The Devils, The Insiders, The Flames, The Sisters of Righteous and more) + a special set of James Brown in Hip Hop with DJ Ransom…. presenting the likes of Eric B & Rakim, EPMD, Lord Finesee, Gang Starr, Stetsasonic, Public Enemy, Kool G Rap, Kid Capri, NWA, Brand Nubian, LL Cool J, KRS One… shall I go on?). It’s gonna be epic!

Unfortunately no band due to previous engagements.  Keep your eyes on the Espy Website for the details as they come to hand.

This December 25 you can eat yourself silly all day and dance your fat-arse off all night… bring your relations, or just get down with Shirley Jean & the Relations…. either way, it promises to be a night of the hardest, toughest, rawest and most scintillating soul & funk ever witnessed South of the Yarra. Get on the good foot, get up – get into it – get involved, give it up or turn it loose…. like a mother …. Believers shall enjoy (and Non-Believers shall suffer). One night only…. “HUH – GOOD GOD”
