Pee Wee Ellis & Fred Wesley

September 19 - September 207:30 p.m.

I can’t say for certain, but my hunch is that these two hornmen have played on more funk and soul cuts than anyone else. Both Pee Wee Ellis (sax) and Fred Wesley (trombone) are graduates of James Brown’s band; Ellis was also Van Morrison’s musical director while Wesley featured in George Clinton’s Funkadelic in the latter half of the ’70s. Essentially what you have here are two of the three pillars of funky horn (minus Maceo Parker), alive and well and ripping it up just for the hell of it (with young players). This show will be a classy, funky, all-star affair.
