Sonny Knight and the Lakers team up with James Brown's band members Jabo Starks and Fred Wesley
On the suggestion of their booking manager, Sonny Knight and the Lakers have been collaborating on some shows with Jabo Starks and Fred Wesley, the drummer and trombone player, respectively, from James Brown's band. 'James Brown has always been an inspiration to me,' Knight says. 'And these guys lay down the funk so well, it just makes it right.' The entire ensemble visited The Current for an in-studio session hosted by Bill DeVille.
