Blues Brothers Soul Band Rhythm and Blues Tribute is a high-kicking, ball-busting, hard-rocking, nail-biting, cat-fighting, film-faking, tight-fitting, feet-stomping, dance-crazed, alcohol-hazed, powerhouse performance of a show. (Amen!) None of the success of this show would be possible without the sheer class of the bands musicians. Jake and Elwood themselves are fictional characters (created originally by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd), but there is no substitute for the genuine top-quality accomplishment of the players. This being a concert/show, all the band members are live on stage and nothing is Pre-programed electronic disco or back tracks. What you see are master blues men at their craft, this is one of the tightest bands around and provide the main drive of the performance; the guitar, keyboard and sax playing are particularly impressive.
Then there is the music itself. With songs by figures such as Ray Charles, Cab Calloway, John Lee Hooker, Aretha Franklin, James Brown (the "Godfather of Soul") and Booker T. & the MG's how could it fail to be anything other than a musical extravaganza? Even the most skeptical of audience members will be on their feet dancing. There is enormous variety in the songs performed, from Soul to Blues and the Stax/Volt Rhythm & Blues. The sets are superb but not distracting and the whole production is something that must be experienced by everyone!
So grab your sunglasses and your pork-pie hat; get down with your blues and go see these good ol' boys for a truly mind-blowing evening. Blues Brothers Tribute can perform as a 2 man with playback in the style of "Universal Studios" or with a full live band. Other configurations:
4 - piece Band - x2 Lead Vocals, Guitar & Keyboards
5 - piece Band - x2 Lead Vocals, Female Vocal, Guitar, Keyboards

Again, thanks for making our evening so special. You guys and Laniece (spelling??) were a huge hit! Feel free to use me as a reference should you ever have the need. Hugs to you!

They were fabulous as before. They went above and beyond the call of duty when power to the entire island of Key Largo went out for nearly an hour, entertaining with acoustic instruments, talking to folks. Fun, high energy, great musicians, professionally managed by Stan! 110%!

Despite "dancing in the dark," the VTCA Winter Meeting banquet "Rockin' the Reef" at Ocean Reef Club was a tremendous success. We are so grateful to you and the Blues Brothers Soul Band for keeping the party going without the benefit of sound or lights! You are true professionals and we appreciate your willingness to work overtime after the lights came back on.
Please share my appreciation with all the band members, and keep the music going!
With warm regards,
