A local Commitments and Blues Brothers Experience comes to Braintree for one night only on 22nd April 2017.
Fronted by Richard Alcock and Ritchie Hicks who have been performing on the East Anglia circuit for over 14 years, ‘Committed to the Blues Brothers Band‘ brings the songs of two cult-classic films together providing two foot-tapping shows in one evening.
The first half of the show is a trip down memory lane to 1991 Dublin where Andrew Strong and Robert Arkins supplied the vocals to some of the greatest covers of soul music ever to glaze the big screen: ‘The Commitments’.
The second half of the show transforms the theatre back to 1980 when Jake & Elwood (originally played by John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd) bought their Saturday Night Live characters to life in what would be arguably the most famous musical duo of all time; scoring 7.9/10 on IMDB.
“The music of the films go together so perfectly” said founder of Committed to the Blues Brothers Band, Richard Alcock.
“You just can’t help but want to dance to these hits. They’re all classics in their own right” he said.
The show also includes live audio-visual effects supporting the show, projected on the big screen behind the performers.
Tickets cost £15 and can be purchased at the Braintree Arts Theatre website or by calling 01376 556354.
