Maple Leaf Bar says
The New Orleans Soul Stars featuring Tony Hall are an All Star ensemble delivering a high energy, soulful tribute to James Brown that stays true to the music and spirit of one of America’s musical legends. For the last eight years since his passing, the Soul Stars have performed a birthday tribute to James Brown during JazzFest. It is our distinct please to present this special New Orleans’ tribute to James Brown at the 46th Annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Tony Hall (vocals, guitar - Dumpstaphunk)
Raymond Weber (drums - Dr. John)
Renard Poche (guitar, trombone - Allen Toussaint)
Roderick Paulin (saxophone - ReBirth Brass Band)
Tracy Griffin (trumpet - Allen Toussaint)
Jeff Watkins (saxophone - James Brown Band 12 years)
Vitas Jones (bass)

Each of the members of the Soul Stars feels a strong connection to the music of James Brown. Jeff Watkins was the featured soloist with James Brown for the last 12 years of the band. Roderick Paulin performed with the Maceo Parker band on multiple occasions. Tony Hall has included James Brown material in his solo shows over the past 20 years. One of the uniting factors of all the members is the strong dedication to the integrity of the music that James Brown created.

Late night show announcement coming soon!
