Biography

The Soul Men Blues Brothers Tribute Band was formed in mid 2009 in response to a call for a Soul Rhythm and Blues review in South East Queensland. The resulting band has been named The Soul Men and they have presented their tribute to the Blues Brothers at several venues from Coffs Harbour to Toowoomba, and north to Gladstone.
This 11 piece band comprises some of the finest musicians in Queensland, with members coming from the Gold Coast, Brisbane, and the Sunshine Coast. The band performs faithful reproductions of Blues Brothers numbers in a high octane scintillating musical entertainment experience, and is versatile enough to provide music in a variety of other styles.
The front line includes Jake Blues, who has had previously performed the role at Universal Studios Japan; a role he won in a world-wide audition. Elwood provides the perfect foil singing his share of songs along with his magical blues harp, and Sister Blues excels singing the songs of Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner. She is so good the band had to add more classic R’n’B numbers to the show to allow her to respond to the calls of encore.
The 4 piece Rhythm Section chug along with an infectious groove and feet start magically tapping.
Add 2 saxes, a trumpet and trombone, and the phenomenal sound the band makes is irresistible. When someone takes a solo the music simply soars.
With choreographed dancing, scripted jokes, and professional acting, you have a complete Blues Brothers entertainment package.
