Currently in Houghton MI (Low 61 Mostly Sunny High 78)
After Mass Saturday night at St. Ignatius in Houghton we drove to Calumet Michigan to attend the Blooze Brothers show in the historic Calumet Theatre.
We blogged about the Calumet Theatre and its history before and have seen a show there. Here is a view of the historic theatre from the web.
The Blooze Brothers are a Blue Brothers tribute band that if you believe their website they are "Chicago's most requested and exciting tribute and show band". We don't know if that's true but we do know we had a good time. Here is the 1974 Dodge Monaco bloozemobile parked out front.
They allowed photos to be taken during the show so here are Jake and Elwood Blooze.
They of course played songs from the Blues Brothers movies but also Motown, 60s, 70s, and Chicago bands like "Ides of March" and of course "Chicago". The band was incredible, especially the horn section, which was evident during the Chicago songs especially. The lead singer, Shiela, was great. Here she is with Jake and Elwood.
Although they had some sound problems the first act, a microphone that didn't work and one that had feedback in one area of the stage. The band sound was too loud and the singers sound was too low so it was difficult to understand the words. It was still a great show and they fixed the sound problems so the second act was much better. If you get the chance to see the Blooze Brothers we highly recommend this show because they haven't been caught yet.
Till next time,
Bob and Jo
