Fred Wesley & The New JBs on Tuesday 23rd May 2023
“It’s well-known in rap and hip-hop circles that, along with (James) Brown and (George) Clinton, Wesley is one of the most sampled musicians in the world today.”- Timothy White, Billboard.
Fred Wesley and James Brown’s backing band The JBs head to Manchester for a rare lesson in the history of funk.
Beginning his career with Ike and Tina Turner, he later became musical director, arranger and composer for the Godfather of funk himself, James Brown, and arranged for and played with Parliament-Funkadelic.
Wesley became the world’s most famous sideman through his work with Brown, defining the language of funk for years to come and later taking it to the next level alongside George Clinton and Bootsy Collins.
