May 3rd is the birthday of The Godfather of Soul. Friends With Benefits is working in conjunction with the City of Augusta and The James Brown Family Foundation for an unforgettable concert experience honoring the life, legacy and music of James Brown. The show will benefit the James Brown Academy of Musik Pupils (JAMP), whose mission is to further music education for Augusta’s youth through the music of James Brown.
