THE BIG PAYBACK
The Big Payback played for our daughter's wedding this past weekend. They were absolutely incredible! No one sat down for the entire evening. They are great musicians, and they play James Brown the way it was meant to be played. Our guests had a fantastic time, and I give the band full credit for the success of the reception. I would highly recommend The Big Payback for any event, especially if you hope that your guests will dance and have a wonderful time!
The Big Payback is a ten piece, musical powerhouse, dedicated to recreating the music of James Brown as accurately and as passionately as possible.
No stone is left unturned! Their repertoire is filled with all the classic hits you know and love, as well as tons of J.B.’s rarities and B sides.
Splits, hits, turns, and segues, it’s all here! With so much emphasis on authenticity, even the Godfather would have to jump back and kiss himself. The most cynical of cynics will have their minds blown and their hearts warmed from the second the beat drops until they’re left exhausted, sweaty, and smiling hours later.
This is truly something to behold, people! It’s exactly what you would and should expect from a top notch tribute band.
The Big Payback ain't messin’ around. Mother Popcorn, Super Bad, Soul Power, I Feel Good, Pass the Peas, Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag, Sex Machine!!!! You name it, you got it!! All of ‘em, live and in your face, with as much energy as you can possibly stand.
