I’m A Soul Man

Tribute to The Blues Brothers

Friday 12 April 2019, The Robertsbridge Club, Station Road

Doors open 7.30pm | Performance starts 8.00pm (finishes 9.45pm)

Don your shades, dress up if you want and join us for the ultimate tribute to The Blues Brothers. Yes! You have the authority to Soul and RocknRoll…

Cult classic, The Blues Brothers, began as a sketch starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as brothers Jake and Elwood Blues on Saturday Night Live in the late 1970s. By 1980 the sketch had become a hit musical comedy film directed by John Landis.

With their black hats, sunglasses and skinny ties, the Blues Brothers were easily recognisable and performed a wide range of Soul, Blues and RocknRoll in their distinctive style.

This fantastic tribute act, starring L.J. Urbani and Clayton Schlimper, bring the iconic characters back to life. Complete with costumes and signature dance moves they perform the much-loved songs from the film including ‘Everybody’, ‘Soul Man’ and ‘Jailhouse Rock’.

Clayton and L.J. are two accomplished actors, singers and musicians. Both are from Tunbridge Wells and together front the party band Mangetout Recovery. They have starred as the Blue Brothers all around the world, from South Africa to Thailand.

L.J. has starred as Buddy Holly in the Buddy Holly Story on the West End. He has also been the leading actor in the Little Shop of Horrors, Rocky Horror Picture Show and Life of Brian.

Clayton is an award-winning actor, for his portrayal of Elwood Blues. He has also starred in Grease, Return to The Forbidden Planet and The Buddy Holly Story.

This show is jam-packed with No. 1 chart-topping hits and loads of audience participation, so what are you waiting for?
