Original Blues Brothers Revue, Lion King & more coming to HFAC

Official Blues Brothers Revue, featuring the Hamilton High School Jazz Band

Fri., April 7 at 7 p.m.
Produced by Dan Aykroyd, Judith Belushi and original “Blues Brothers” musical director Paul Shaffer, this is a show that maintains every ounce of the original band’s integrity. Sanctioned by Aykroyd and Belushi to don the official hat and sunglasses and walk in the legendary footsteps of Jake and Elwood Blues, internationally touring Catnia and Lafferty capture the infectious humor and unbridled spirit of the Blues Brothers. Backed by a powerhouse band of brass and vocals, they’ll give you a show to remember featuring “Soul Man,” “Rubber Biscuit,” “Sweet Home Chicago” and more. Hamilton High School Jazz Band, directed by Jon Waite, will open the show, as well as perform several songs with the “Blues Brothers.”

Reserved seats. All seats $25. Group rates available. Add $5 for all tickets purchased on day of the show.
