Re: Mayor Copenhaver to Attend Payback (James Brown Celebration)
On Saturday, May 3rd, the city of Augusta will celebrate James Brown with a new James Brown exhibit at the Augusta Museum of History and an all day music festival featuring the Doobie Brothers, Branford Marsalis, The Soul Generals, Modern Skirts, Greg Hester and Swanee Quintet.
“James Brown is now and will always be a legend in the music industry. It is fitting that this tribute to his legacy has such a stellar line up of musical talent. It is my honor to attend a concert in honor of a man who promoted the City of Augusta wherever he went and who was also a good friend.”
