Saturday Night Charity Concert Benefitting the Boys and Girls Clubs of Lakeland and Mulberry Presented by the Detroit Tigers Foundation of Florida

The Blues Brothers Soul Band Featuring Tina Turner Simply the Best Tribute

Blues Brothers Soul Band Rhythm and Blues Tribute is a high-kicking, hard-rocking, nail-biting, cat-fighting, film-faking, tight-fitting, feet-stomping, dance-crazed, 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. 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.
