“The Funk don’t Quit” – James “The Sex Machine” Brown


Get On Up directed by Tate Taylor and produced by Mick Jagger and Brian Grazer tells you the “from rags to riches” story of James Brown. With Chadwick Boseman performing a brilliant and breathtaking portrait of the The Godfather of Soul, James Brown. Influencing several musicians of many generations during his six decades as one of the most hard working artists in the business. Nobody within music is untouched by The King of Funk. Follow his journey from musician group The Famous Flames, his first meeting with the Rolling Stones, his companionship with manager Ben Bart played by Dan Aykroyd and all the way to the top of the billboards. An inspirational biography of a man reaching the top during some very hard and tough times in a divided America.
