James Brown is Annie, feat Hamish Stuart £10.00

7:30pm Friday 14th September

Purveyors of whipped up, calorie-laden, full-fat funk, James Brown Is Annie are the modern day Scottish extension of Caledonian R'N'B legends Average White Band: smooth, soulful and uber-slick. Renowned for their tight, dynamic, groove-laden live shows, the sextet regularly sell-out shows across the country; adaptable to playing festivals, seated jazz clubs and sweaty nightclubs alike. QUOTES "A contender for Scottish Album of the Year. The Funk is strong with these ones" - Daily Record "A perfect example of just how much fun funk can be" - The Scotsman "Brilliant Scottish funk ensemble making waves with some of the biggest names in the genre" - Sunday Mail "One of Scotland's top bands" - BBC Radio Scotland "Extremely funky" - Jazz FM BIOGRAPHY One of the UK's most accessible soul-funk-jazz artists, James Brown Is Annie met in a piano bar, rehearse next to a sex shop, and take their name from an Eddie Murphy Saturday Night Live sketch. Supported by National Arts body, Creative Scotland, the group's two albums (JBiA I and JBiA II) were produced by original Average White Band members Molly Duncan (2015) and Hamish Stuart (2018). Regulars on national television and radio, JBiA's second single, Get Up To Get Down, was a BBC Radio Scotland 'Single Of The Week' in April 2016. The only band to have headlined two different stages at the famous Edinburgh Hogmanay Street Party (Waverley Stage 2012, Mound Stage 2017), playing to over 80,000 people, the Scottish outfit have shared stages with some of music's top recording artists (Average White Band, The Family Stone, Kaiser Chiefs, Electric Six, etc.) at some of the country's most prestigious venues, selling out many along the way. MEMBERS Ahmed S. Remally: Lead Guitar & Lead Vocals Barry Gordon: Rhythm Guitar & Vocals Brett Allan: Bass Davide L.
