After hearing these dudes kick out tunes like; "Gimme some lovin'", and "Messin' with the kid", it makes me ashamed that I even attempted to perform them at my high school pep rallies. This 10 piece Portland Blues Brothers tribute, also performing as a stripped down 5-piece group to showcase their original works, has members that hail from all over the country, pumps out tunes with a bluesy swagger to be reckoned with. They may do Blues Brother's tunes, but with a fire that's unmistakably all theirs. Be sure to check out my favorites "Messin' with the kid", and "Soul man".
