Disco Benny at the Premier of "Get On Up"
James Brown fans are on their feet for the premier of the biopic "Get on Up.'
The film is based on the life of the legendary entertainer.
Disco Benny is a local entertainer who's popular for his impression of Godfather of Soul.
He has been a James Brown fan since he was nine and proudly touts his collection of all 104 Brown albums.
He and his wife came to Cinemark Tinseltown on Youree Dr. in Shreveport to see the movie.
Disco Benny says, "Should've been did like 20 years ago and I could have been James Brown. I'd have been a little younger then."
We first showed you Disco Benny a few years ago here on NBC 6, and it looks like he's still got it.
"Get on Up" premiers in theaters this weekend, along with Disney's highly anticipated "Guardians of the Galaxy."
