Interview: Brand New Heavies play Buckhead Theatre on July 2

The Brand New Heavies took their name from a liner note on a James Brown single that declared him “Minister of New Super Heavy Funk.” The UK group has been performing since the 1980’s and was part of the impetus for the Acid Jazz movement. Original members Simon Bartholemew and Andrew Levy are touring the states with one of the group’s outstanding vocalists N’Dea Davenport. The group has recorded eight studio albums and is working on two more projects. Simon Bartholomew spoke with Atlanta INtown about the groups history and N’Dea Davenport talked about rejoining the group after several years away.
