James Brown b-day bash Friday at Truckee’s Bar of America

TRUCKEE, Calif. — James Brown once said: “The one thing that can solve most of our problems is dancing.”

With that in mind, Tahoe and Truckee residents are encouraged to “get on up,” dance and celebrate what would be James Brown’s 80th birthday at Bar of America in Truckee Friday night.

Enjoy live music from local funk band Thick Newton, as well as a funk and soul set from Tahoe’s Zeb Early.

Music starts at 9 p.m. Tickets cost $8 in advance, or $10 at the door. Learn more about the event by searching “James Brown Birthday Celebration!” on Facebook.
