The Funky Godfather is a world-class 9-piece showband and a tribute to the music of James Brown. It’s fronted by one of the most talented and dynamic performers working the stage today, Cubby Ingram. Cubby’s got it all: the voice, the moves, the energy and the magic. And just like JB, Cubby’s backed by a super-funky, super-tight band featuring horns, percussion, and one of the baddest rhythm sections in the business — true professionals who have performed all around the world, at iconic soul music venues like the Apollo Theater and Porretta (Italy) Soul Festival.
This great band sets the stage on fire (and packs the dance floor) with James Brown's greatest hits. JB's storied career spanned over three decades of American pop music, from the late ’50s all the way into the early ’90s. The Funky Godfather covers all the favorites: ‘Night Train’, ‘Please Please Please’, ‘Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag’, ’I Feel Good’, ‘This Is A Man’s World’, ‘Cold Sweat’, ‘I Got The Feelin’, ‘Popcorn’, ‘Try Me’, ‘Sex Machine’, ‘Super Bad’, ‘Get Up Offa That Thing’, ‘Living In America’ and more.
