Tres Gatos is excited and honored to host Daryl Brown, son of the famous James Brown, for a Q&A and book signing for his new book, “Inside the Godfather.” Known as the Godfather of Soul, James Brown’s contributions to modern music are well known and indisputable, but his role in promoting racial equality and harmony is less appreciated, perhaps because of his complex and tempestuous personal life.

In this groundbreaking memoir, Daryl — who is an artist, songwriter, musician and producer — promises to “correct the distortions of the past” by sharing his own recollections and stories, and those of James Brown’s inner circle. It will be fascinating to compare the depiction of James Brown in this book with his portrayal in the soon to be released Universal Studios film entitled “Get On Up,” produced by Mick Jagger and Brian Grazer.

We hope you’ll join us for what is certain to be a fascinating reading and discussion. The event starts around 3pm on Sunday, August 3, and tapas and drinks will be available. Reservations are recommended but not required. We have the book in stock if you’d like to purchase it prior to the event.
