Evesham: Evesham Arts Centre, Worcestershire

Take a trip down memory lane as you hear the best songs from The Commitments and The Blues Brothers in a full live-band experience.

Get your dancing shoes on as Jake & Elwood meet Deco & Jimmy in an amazing, authentic performance where Chicago Blues meets Dublin Soul. This stage show includes state of the art audio visual effects as well as iconic scenes from both cult-classic films.

Expect top-quality musical performance from the professional 12 piece Big Soul Band, along with authentic performances including songs from favourites such as Aretha Franklin, The Blues Brothers and Andrew Strong – like ‘Everybody (needs somebody)’, ‘Try a Little Tenderness’, ‘R.E.S.P.E.C.T’ and ‘Jailhouse Rock’.

Definitely a show not to be missed!

Bungay Bonanza!

So it’s done, our first show at the excellent Fisher Theatre in Bungay; and what a night!

The sell out show was packed to the rafters with lots of people ready to have a good time, and the audience didn’t disappoint us. Especially the ladies in Row B 🙂

Sadly, Kay (one of the singers) was unwell and unable to make the show (get well soon, Kay) and both Richard and Ritchie (Jimmy and Deco) were recovering from the flu. But Vocalzone, Sudafed and plenty of water did the trick…the show must go on!

Here are some photos of the night. Next show is at Whitstable Playhouse theatre on the beautiful Kent Coast. Tickets are disappearing quickly so get a wiggle on if you’re planning on coming. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.

See you soon!

Thank you, Braintree Arts Theatre

It feels like a distant dream now, but our maiden show at Braintree Arts Theatre was a roaring success; and the people of Braintree made us feel very welcome!

Deco was as cocky as ever, Jimmy donned a shirt that Noel Edmunds would be proud of, and the Commitment Blue-ettes had their harmonies spot on. We even had a surprise guest appearance on harmonica by Chris Mallandain.

We’d also like to thank Phil and his technicians for being so helpful and accommodating on the night. Braintree Arts Theatre is a lovely venue. It’s modern, clean and the sound is great. If you’ve never visited you should.

So, on to the next show….Colchester Arts Centre on 6th May 2017. See you there!
