Movie! "Get on up", James Brown story, Host Ms. Mimi

  • July 5, 2014 · 1:00 PM

This movie depicts the "Godfather of Soul" bioptic movie. I grew up with this sound and learned to dance some really cool dance moves by black folks.
As James Brown once said, "If you ain't ever been down, how you gonna git up?".
Join Mimi and friends for seeing how our soul, blues and jazz was created by one of our great Soul entertainers.

      That's correct Susan. Mimi posted this as a placeholder. I saw the trailer when seeing Malificent, and it looks like it's going to be good!

    The Godfather of Soul, Soul Brother #1, the Hardest Working Man In Show Business. He became the leading edge of funk over the entire world. He was revered in Africa, Europe, and Asia. If he needed some money, boom, European and African tour - no more money problems! I used to sing Get On Up and dance in my living room. The name of the song with Get On Up shout is "Sex Machine." Michael Jackson would do James Brown dance steps in his show. James was a US National Treasure born into poverty. He fought his way to stardom and international recognition.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
