"Ladies and gentlemen, it's star time!" Those were the words spoken by Bobby Byrd on thousands of nights as he introduced a man who really needed no introduction. The Godfather of Soul. The Hardest Working Man In Show Business. Soul Brother Number One. The one and only... James Brown. On November 14th, we're bringing a one-two punch to Portland... One set of original funky soul music and then an epic all James Brown second set featuring special guests. It's time to get on up, get on the good foot, and get down with us all night long.
This is a fundraiser to celebrate the history of Biddeford and also to promote it as a great place to start a business. Lots of great food and beer from local companies... and us!
Outdoor show in Bray's biergarten. This is the same day as the Maine Lakes Brew Festival, so don't miss out on the chance to rage with us under the stars!

“...this band means business, as evidenced by its polished, dynamic, lively and funky album. My current favorite on the nine-song collection of original tunes is “Love Somebody.” With electric guitar, a mess of horns and awesome backup vocals from Brundage, the song gets it done both musically and lyrically. Regoulinsky will have you singing along before the song is over. “You gotta love somebody/You gotta love somebody/You gotta love somebody if we all want to get along.” I also dig the slower groove “Nothing More to Say” with the sensational Brundage on lead vocals over a bed of horns: “Walking ’round lonely streets while the sun goes down/comfort in the silence of this dead-end town.” “Speed of Soul” will have you hopping on the soul train and “Back to School” is a funky romp.”
