‘Soul’ mates Charles Bradley and Tom Brenneck (of the Dap Kings) met on Stanton Island back in 2000 and formed a connection, a friendship, and years later, the Menahan Street Band.
Influence comes strait from the guts of the earth in musicians Barbara Streisand, Diana Ross, and Curtis Mayfield who inspire and create. The lyrics of life and of love explode from emotion as they share their experiences with the world through music. As inauguration day approaches their message of creating a brighter future emerges in a new song, ‘At Last Victory Has Come’.
As ‘The World Goes Up in Flames’ Tom and Charles connect with each other, with music, and with the world encouraging us to set aside our pain and our blame and come together to ‘Make Things Right’.
