GOLD COAST JAZZ & BLUES CLUB
The Soul Men - The Blues Brothers Return - Wednesday 4 November 2020
Our last show for the year featured The Soul Men – The Blues Brothers Return and what an extraordinary show this was. The musicians and vocalists in this band were superb and had the audience dancing in their seats – Well for most us, as there were some dancers who despite their best efforts to remain seated, the call of the Soul Men to shake those tail feathers was just way too much to stay constrained.
The Soul Men strutted their stuff in a clean and tight immersion of Rhythm & Blues! Jake & Elwood entered The Lakeside Room with the band in full swing as they meandered amongst a sell out crowd with their distinctive hats and black and white suits. They rocked many of the classics including Proud Mary, Do You Love Me, Respect, Sweet Home Chicago and many more ‘feel good’ numbers. Asabi Goodman demonstrated her vocal skills with stirring Aretha Franklin numbers and many more standards from the era. She combined beautifully with the 2 front men Greg Hill – Jake and Brent Moetara – Elwood and had the crowd enthralled throughout. A sensational night was had by all, just the dose of music medicine we all needed!
Thank you to each and every one of you who came out in support and a huge thank you to the band, cannot wait to have you back again! Turn up your volume and click the play button below for our video of the Soul Men at our show.
