Mousey Thompson & The James Brown Experience is an all-star ensemble that faithfully performs the most popular songs by one of greatest music legends of our time. This talented band was assembled by accomplished drummer Robert "Mousey" Thompson, who performed with James Brown from 1993 until his passing in 2006. Thompson has also performed with other renowned musical performers including Wilson Pickett, Lloyd Price, Rufus Thomas and Peaches & Herb. Thompson was born and raised in Washington, DC, and his musical talent and passion were cultivated while growing up in this area. After James Brown passed away, Thompson assembled his own stellar group of talented local musicians to perform the music of James Brown in tribute to his great musical legacy.
In addition to an amazing rhythm section led by Thompson, the band features a terrific horn section as well as impressive showmanship and vocals by lead singer Greg Cooper. The band performs James Brown's biggest hit songs including "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" "I Got You (I Feel Good)", "It's A Man's World", "Cold Sweat", "I Got The Feelin'", "Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine", "Super Bad", "Get On The Good Foot" and many, many more. Mousey Thompson & The James Brown Experience is the tightest and funkiest band around delivering the signature James Brown sound and putting on an extraordinary show that has audiences dancing all night long!
