He learned to play the lead guitar, and his unique style began to take shape. Forming his first band the Jackson Southernaries he recorded his first album and toured the nations. Kincaid found success as a performer, touring with some of the biggest names in blues and music. He played for such great artist as Little Milton, James Brown, Johnny Taylor, Ike & Tina Turner and BB King.
His popularity continued to grow, and he soon became one of the most revered blues and funk musicians of his generation. Famous the song “Down Home Blues” with ZZ Hill. James Brown once said to Joe Kincaid in a way that own James Brown could say it, “You motherf****rs play my music better than my own damn group.” So, James Brown hired the Joe Kincaid and his band on the spot.
