JAMES BROWN Tribute at Hollywood Bowl with Bettye LaVette, D'Angelo & Aloe Blacc

The Hollywood Bowl will be brimming with funk as Grammy-winning bassist -- and former James Brown collaborator -- Christian McBride leads the James Brown Alumni Band in an all-star tribute to the one and only "Godfather of Soul." With special appearances by soul, funk, hip-hop and R&B superstars like D'Angelo, Bettye LaVette, Aloe Blacc and Angélique Kidjo all backed by a band that features stellar musicians who played with Brown for years, Get on Up: A James Brown Celebration could be the funkiest show to hit the stage since "The Hardest Working Man in Show Business" left this realm. The James Brown Alumni Band even features legendary drummer Clyde Stubblefield, the very man who laid down the beats on Brown classics like "Cold Sweat," "Funky Drummer," "Mother Popcorn," "I Got the Feelin'" and Brown's iconic Sex Machine album.
