Suited soul singers


The All New Original Tribute to the Blues Brothers, the smash hit featuring cast members from the original London run, comes to Sangamon Auditorium, UIS on Saturday, Mar. 10. Jake and Elwood Blues once again don their iconic hats, sunglasses and suits to bring to life a host of the duo’s most memorable hits, including “Shake A Tail Feather,” “Think,” “Respect,” “Gimme Some Loving” and the toe-tapping classic “Everybody Needs Somebody To Love!” This brand new reworking of the celebrated show – which includes a new set, updated choreography and new songs – is directed by Brad Henshaw, an established name on the international music stage who also stars in the show as Jake. Daniel Flechter stars as “Elwood,” and the duo is backed by one of Europe’s finest six piece bands, along with three soulful and sassy singers, Jocasta Almgill, Victoria Ekanoye and Victoria Goddard, aptly named “The Bluettes.”
