Grab your sunglasses, fill up the Bluesmobile, and party with the only duo sanctioned by Dan Aykroyd, Judith Belushi, and musical director Paul Shaffer. Backed by a powerhouse band, Wayne Catania and Kieron Lafferty take over the Tower stage Sunday, November 9, at 7 pm, capturing the humor and spirit of Jake and Elwood, and performing Blues Brothers classics including Soul Man, Rubber Biscuit and Sweet Home Chicago.
“The image is unmistakable: sinister midnight shades; narrow black ties; and porkpie hats,” said Tower Theatre Foundation executive director, Ray Solley. “But their R&B music is as good as it gets, with a soul band as mean and righteous as a fist.”
This special event the Chicago Sun-Times called “infectious and unbridled energy,” is a presentation of the nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation. Show night sponsor is the 10 Below restaurant in the Oxford Hotel.
The nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation owns and operates the historic stage in downtown Bend. The Foundation’s mission is to be the leading performing arts organization, providing cultural and education programs that make an essential contribution to Central Oregon’s lifestyle and strengthen the community. Membership, program information and individual and group tickets are available at the box office (835 NW Wall), by phone (541-317-0700) or online (www.towertheatre.org).
