Vocalist and songwriter Elise Testone stays busy collaborating with local jazz, rock, and soul groups, and she works hard on her own compositions, too. But once in a while, she switches gears and organizes the popular James Brown Dance Party. Backed by an solid ensemble of local talent, Testone and various guest singers and horn players dress up, get on the good foot, and jam out on the very best of the Godfather of Soul's catalog. It's nasty, groovy fun.
