JAKE and Elwood Blues will be raising the roof at the Theatre Royal Bath as their soul, rhythm and blues musical extravaganza The Best Blues Brothers Show in the World - Ever! makes a welcome return.
With a fantastic stage set, the driving backbeat of The Black Rhino Band, powerhouse performances from Jake and Elwood and backing vocals from the sensational Charvelles, this electrifying night of entertainment celebrates the music of the hit film and features all the timeless classics, including those performed by original superstars James Brown, Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles in the world famous 1980s movie.
Having performed in front of audiences around the world the show has become recognised as one of the ultimate feel good experiences in theatre land.
Just some of the many much-loved Blues Brothers tracks featured in the show, include Everybody Needs Somebody, Soul Man, Sweet Home Chicago, Jailhouse Rock, Midnight Hour, I Feel Good and It’s A Man’s World; together with a selection of cleverly-adapted numbers such as Dock of the Bay, Dancing in the Street and Heat Wave.
Such is their commitment to the Blues Brothers, the stars of the show are officially known as Jake and Elwood.
Elwood plays seven different harmonicas during the show and has been compared to the late great Larry Adler. The Best Blues Brothers Show in the World – Ever! also features new arrangements of classic numbers specifically created by the fabulous Black Rhino Band.
Remember to wear your hat and shades – Jake and Elwood like to see their audience dressed up and ready to party.
The Best Blues Brothers Show in the World – Ever! appears at the Theatre Royal Bath on Sunday at 3pm and 7.30pm.
