19/08 2017 - 22 h Passeig Marítim / 50è. aniversari d’Empuriabrava
The Blues Brothers Band están vivitos y coleando. Y para dejarlo claro, la legendaria banda, conocida principalmente por sus películas The Blues Brothers y Blues Brothers 2000 y por su triple álbum de platino Briefcase Full of Blues, visitan este verano Empuriabrava.
The Blues Brothers Band, que siguen contando en la formación con algunos de sus músicos originales, harán un repaso por las melodías legendarias del blues, sin dejar atrás los ritmos más actuales.
Setzen Sie Ihre Sonnenbrille auf. The «Original» Blues Brothers Band lässt es am 19. August in Empuriabrava am Strand richtig krachen mit brodelndem Blues, Soul und Rhythm and Blues. Hitsongs wie «Everybody Needs Somebody to Love» von Solomon Burke, «Soul Finger», «Minnie the Mooch», «Sweet Home Chicago» und «Knock on Wood» lassen den Boden im 1960er-Style vibrieren. Nach dem legendären Film „The Blues Brothers“ mit Dan Aykroyd und James Belushi spielt die Band Songs, die alle kennen!
«It was always about the music. Jake and Elwood may have fronted the show, but to back them up they made sure to have the meanest, cikest line-up of badass blues cats ever assembled. These were the men behind the likes of Otis Redding, Booker T & The MGs, Muddy Waters, James Cotton, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave, and the SNL Band - just to name a few. These players have since emerged as a powerful entity in their own right, and although scheduling makes it dif cult, they have played together sporadically over the past three decades».
«Since regular regrouping in 1988, the «Original» Blues Brothers Band has triumphantly performed in international venues large and small, headlining at most of the jazz and blues festivals throughout Europe, such as Nimes Fair (France), North Sea Jazz Festival (Holland), Pistoia Blues Festival (Italy), and, most famously, at the Montreux Jazz Festival (Switherland), playing to audiences estimated up to 60,000 in one performance. Book them for a night of masterful, magival, chest-thumpin’ blues, gospel and soul.»
