Before Charles Bradley released his excellent debut LP on Daptone Records last year, he performed under the name Black Velvet as a James Brown impersonator. On January 28 at Hiro Ballroom in NYC, he’ll bring back the Black Velvet moniker for a James Brown tribute show with Jimmy Hill & The Allstarz Band. Tickets for that show are on sale now. The flier for the show is below.

Charles Bradley just played New Year’s Eve at MHOW with Budos Band. Check out a video of them performing together at 12:01 AM, January 1, 2012, below.
