About this Event

Come out and enjoy this spectacular musical “Remembering James The Musical” starring Dedrick Weathersby. You will laugh, You will sing, You will dance and most of all, You will remember the icon James Brown.

Remembering James, is a 90 minute musical starring Broadway World Award Nominee Dedrick Weathersby, telling the story of The Godfather of Soul, James Brown. Spanning nearly two decades of his monumental career, you’ll see how a divided country, the growing Civil Rights movement and the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. shaped the artist’s work.

An eight-piece band accompanies the show, bringing the passion of his music alive. Some songs include: “Please Please,” “Papa Got a Brand New Bag,” “Cold Sweat,” “I Feel Good,” “Say It Loud I’m Black and I’m Proud.”

Dedrick Weathersby has performed in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, NYC, been rescheduled at the Apollo Theater, and now you have the opportunity to see his Nationally touring stage musical.

Nothing short of fantastic-Sid Cohen. Theater Weekly

"James Brown's promoter... [Brian] Martin praised Weathersby for 'nailing' all of Browns dance moves and called the acting 'Oscar-worthy.' 'Dedrick is the real deal,' Martin said. 'If you're a James Brown fan, this show is phenomenal. It brought back so many great memories working with Mr. Brown and his band.'" - "Times-Herald"
