Second Annual… Featuring James Brown Band front man Tony Wilson aka «Young James Brown.» On April 4th in 1968 — 130 cities throughout America had riots following the murder of The Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. James Brown was scheduled to perform on the next evening in Boston on April 5th, but fearing that rioting would occur, officials considered cancelling the concert.

Mayor Kevin White and James Brown talked it through and despite grave concerns, the concert was held as James convinced the Mayor that he would be able to control the crowd--which he did.

It was an historic moment in musical history, as well as the history of Boston.

On April 5, 2019, for the second year in a row we will celebrate and re-live the historic concert…

Honoring the Memory of Martin Luther King, Jr.
