Love Jones: A Sharon Jones Tribute

Sam Reed

Sam Reed has been blazing the trail in these RVA streets for a while with many different bands as well as her own projects. She has most recently gained recognition for her tribute projects designed to showcase the power and influence that women like Nina Simone and Janis Joplin have had in music. Her next undertaking is completely dedicated to the vivacious, fiery, powerhouse that was Sharon Jones. Jones commanded the stage with an energy that had no bounds. Almost two years ago she lost her battle with pancreatic cancer, but her spirit and the life in her music and performance remain.

With James Brown being Sharon’s biggest musical influence, Sam and band will be joined by none other than Richmond’s own, The Big Payback. And to keep the party going all night long, DJ Ghozt will be spinning old school funk/soul gems.

The Big Payback: A Tribute to James Brown

The Big Payback is a musical powerhouse, dedicated to recreating the music of James Brown as accurately and as passionately as possible.

No stone is left unturned! Their repertoire is filled with all the classic hits you know and love, as well as tons of J.B.’s rarities and B sides.

Splits, hits, turns, and segues, it’s all here! With so much emphasis on authenticity, even the Godfather would have to jump back and kiss himself. The most cynical of cynics will have their minds blown and their hearts warmed from the second the beat drops until they’re left exhausted, sweaty, and smiling hours later.

This is truly something to behold, people! It’s exactly what you would and should expect from a top notch tribute band.

The Big Payback ain't messin’ around. Mother Popcorn, Super Bad, Soul Power, I Feel Good, Pass the Peas, Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag, Sex Machine!!!! You name it, you got it!! All of ‘em, live and in your face, with as much energy as you can possibly stand.

Some of the most talented musicians from the Mid-Atlantic region, bringing you the closest thing to the real thing, The Big Payback.

No wigs, no gimmicks, no clichés. An honest, painstakingly researched, representation of the Godfather of Soul, James Brown and his band, at their musical peak. Can you stand it?

**Super high energy stage show!**
**Covers the 64’ – ’76 period.**
