The Apollo Theater is deep in the heart of Harlem. James Brown made his name there playing soul and funk revues. Hence the retro 60s vibe of this poster which is a great tribute to the hardest workin’ man in show business, from what must be the hardest working band in show business. Git on up-o-dat-thang HUH!

Did you know: I once walked from about 12th St in Manhattan all the way through Central Park to 140th St in Harlem. It’s bloody fascinating and highly recommended to see the contrasts of New York.
