Description

Remembering James Starring Longview TX's very own Dedrick Weathersby, is a 90 minute musical, which tells 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 artists’ work. A 8-piece band accompanies the show, bringing the passion of his music alive while offering a message of hope to a grief-stricken nation looking for a moment of healing and celebration. Join us in December as this will be the last stop of the 2019 "Night Train" Tour.

Some Songs Include:

"Please Please"

"Try Me"

"Caldonia"

"Outta Sight"

"Papa Got a Brand New Bag"

"Cold Sweat"

"I Feel Good"

"This a Mans World"

"Say It Loud I'm Black and I'm Proud"



Praise from fans for Remembering James:

  • “We have seen James Brown perform and Dedrick Weathersby has him down.”
  • “Weathersby’s performance was spot on and fantastic.”
  • “The band was great and there wasn’t a song that I would want to have hear that they missed.”
  • “If you are a James Brown fan and even if you’re not you should see this show.”
  • “Highly recommend and the guy who plays James Brown (Dedrick Weathersby) is definitely a talent you dont want to miss, his band is awesome as well.”
  • “Weathersby’s Brown is so on-point and real, I used Shazam to see if James Brown would show up as the performer of the songs because Weathersby nailed it.” —Reelkev Arts
  • "San Francisco 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 youre a James Brown fan, this show is phenomenal. It brought back so many great memories working with Mr. Brown and his band.'" - "Times-Herald"
