Festive fun with Jake and Elwood
Billed as Jake and Elwood’s Christmas Party, the show features a Blues Brother tribute duo, backed by the Black Rhino Band.
As well as the classic blues and Stax/Atlantic soul tunes featured in the John Landis film, expect to hear songs by James Brown, Ray Charles and other soul artists plus a few festive favourites, too.
Songs in the band’s repertoire include Sam and Dave’s Soul Man, James Brown’s Living in America, I Feel Good and It’s a Man’s World, Solomon Burke’s Everybody Needs Somebody, and other tunes from the movie, including Sweet Home Chicago and Minnie the Moocher.
