The Blooze Brothers – Kick of Fungus Fest
August 3 @ 7:00 pm
Kicking of Humongous Fungus Festival as the parade’s Grand Marshalls and then taking the Theatre’s stage!
The Blooze Brothers are the #1 touring tribute to the characters of Jake and Elwood Blues originally portrayed in the late 1970’s by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd of Saturday Night Live fame. Driving the Bloozmobile they’ll be Grand Marshalling the Fungus Fest parade right into the Crystal Theatre. Their audience will be treated to powerful Motown, Soul, R&B, Classic Rock, Swing, and of course the music and crazy antics of the famous original Blues Brothers! “Jake” and “Elwood” are accompanied by nine other high-energy talented musicians with bold vocals, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, drums, guitars, bass guitars, and keyboards.
The Blooze Brothers will take the stage at 7:00 pm on Friday, August 3. “They were part of the Gem Series three years ago and we’ve been so anxious for an opportunity to welcome them back! You will be dancing in the aisle – It’s good, solid, big music – it’s funny, high energy!” says Crystal Theatre Board President, Wilma Kallies. “It’s so good to have Fungus Fest back bigger than ever, and it’s exciting to have the theatre provide two great entertainment events during the festival. What could be a better way to top off the festival than with some musical Yooper humor?” Theatre doors will open an hour before show time, serving beer and wine, soft drinks and treats in Stage Left.
