The band formed by Dan Akroyd and John Belushi – creating Jake and Elwood Blues originally for a sketch on Americas Saturday Night Live program and then went on to shoot the motion picture.
They could not have know at the time how powerful this computation of some of the greatest soul music ever written, mixed with two crazy characters, combined with the magic of outrageous choreography was going to be the classic icon it’s become.
The Blues Brothers will be joined by one of Europe’s finest seven piece bands and the sassy Bluettes; three amazing ladies with voices to knock you clean off your perch! Expect all your favourite songs, including Everybody, Shake A Tail Feather, Sweet Home Chicago, Think, Respect, , and loads more!
The famous Palace Theatre Manchester knows after hosting so many great shows what will pull in the crowds and this is know exception.
However it as to be said, with respect to the cast as I’m sure they love doing it, the one sure thing that guarantees success and a great night out, is the music. You’ll not want to go home at the end of the performance, so sauce out the nearest club playing music for when you leave the theatre.
Why not make a weekend of it, the Cornerstones Guest House is just 15 minutes from the Palace Theatre in Manchester city centre.
Cornerstones is located in the leafy suberbs of south Manchester; just leave your car in the car park and walk round the corner to Brooklands Metro Station. The theatre is just a five minutes walk from St Peter’s Sq Metro stop in the centre of Manchester.
