In 2007 Osaka Monaurail from Japan celebrate their 15th year of existance. Named after the „It’s the JB’s Monaurail“ album by The JB’s - they live and breathe the sound of the James Brown Orchestra with an unmatched perfection and devotion. As they started out as a 15-piece band they went through some changes over the years and are now a 9 member funk outfit that has already five albums and and nine vinyl-singles under their belt as well as last years comeback album by Funk-Icon Marva Whitney, who they accompanied on the full length-release called „I Am What I Am“.
