Thursday April 5th, we are honored to feature the great Booker T. Jones as ATL Collective brings Funk to the People, Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of James Brown's Historic 1968 Boston Concert. It was the day after Martin Luther King Jr. assassination, and cities around the country were bracing for riots. Boston was one of the few cities that kept the peace thanks largely to James Brown and the spirit of unity he projected from stage. Half a century to the day from that incredibly powerful evening, we will celebrate the power music has to unite and overcome. Our featured act will be the legendary Memphis Stax recording artist Booker T. Jones (of Booker T. & the M.G.'s) who was front and center during the peak of the Civil Rights Movement and was part of one of the first racially integrated rock bands ever. Get your tickets before they're gone. This is going to be one for the ages.
