James Brown's right hand man from the late 60s early 70s.
Saw Funky Fred and his barnstorming band last nite in Leeds (only found out about it at lunchtime). My ass hasn't stopped shaking yet!!!
Anyone who likes classic James Brown style grooves and doesn't mind a bit of jazz has gotta see this guy!!!
Playing the Jazz cafe in London tonight, tomorrow and Saturday (sorry for the short notice for anyone who's interested). Then seems to be moving into mainland Europe - haven't checked how many shows he's doing or where.
