Still Black, Still Proud - The African Tribute to James Brown (US/ZA/SN/UK)

I 1965 begyndte Pee Wee Ellis at skrive numre sammen med James Brown. Det resulterede i det første hit i funkens historie, "Cold Sweat". Senere fulgte yderligere 26 hits, som definerer, hvad funk er den dag i dag. Pee Wee Ellis blev James Browns manager og er blevet kaldt manden, der opfandt funken. I 2008 startede han projektet Still Black, Still Proud - The African Tribute to James Brown, hvor han sammen med afrikanske superstjerner har turneret for fulde huse i England, Europa og Nordamerika.

NB! Koncerten er flyttet fra Store Sal til Foyeren.
