Featuring: The Big Payback with members of the original James Brown Band (Clyde Stubblefield, Fred Wesley, Jabo Starks and Fred Thomas) and special guest Wally Ingram, and the Black Star Drum Line Performance Group.
Clyde Stubblefield started his musical career as a child in Chattanooga, TN, “playing on tin can lids, pasteboard boxes – everything.” Since then Clyde has played all over the world and recorded with some of the greatest funk, soul, and R&B performers including James Brown, Otis Redding, and Clayton Fillyau.
While recording and performing with James Brown, Clyde joined John “Jab’o” Starks and they became known as the funkiest men alive. Clyde recorded “Funky Drummer”. He and Jab’o are the most sampled drum tracks in the world.
Come by any time between 6 & 8 PM. Grab a beer and some eats, and enjoy the best music Madison has to offer! $3 drink specials every night.
