For one night only the self-proclaimed Purveyors of full-fat, calorie-laden, whipped up funk 'n' soul, James Brown is Annie, named after an Eddie Murphy Saturday Night Live sketch, is returning to Nottingham for two performances in one day!

The Scottish sextet, who make regular appearances on shows STV and BBC Radio Scotland, are the only band who have headlined to different stages at Edinburgh’s own Hogmanay Street Party and have also shared the stage with some of the best funk and soul artists around such as Average White Band, The Family Stone, Brand New Heavies, The Head-hunters, Little Feat, Robert Cray Band, to name but a few.

The band have previously released two albums, both of which were produced by original Average White Band members Molly Duncan (2015) and Hamish Stuart (2018), the group gaining a BBC Radio Scotland 'Single Of The Week' award for the song, Get Up To Get Down and are currently working on a third studio album.

As previously mentioned, the James Brown Is Annie band is set to embark on two funkalicious sets, the gigs take place on Friday 20th January 2023 with a twilight performance starting at 6pm lasting for an hour.
