Music and Motion Evening Concert with The Original Blues Brothers™ Band
Hamilton Music Collective and Bike for Mike present The Original Blues Brothers™ Band at Collective Arts Brewing.
Opening set from Hamilton blues legend and Juno Award Winner, Steve Strongman.
The Original Blues Brothers™ Band - "It was always about the music. Jake and Elwood may have fronted the show, but to back them up they made sure to have the meanest, sickest line-up of badass blues cats ever assembled. These were the men behind Otis Redding, Booker T & the MGs, Muddy Waters, James Cotton, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave, and the SNL Band -- just to name a few. These players have since emerged as a powerful entity in their own right, and although scheduling makes it difficult, they have played together sporadically over the past three decades. Since regrouping in 1988, the 'Original' Blues Brothers Band has triumphantly performed in international venues large and small, headlining at most of the jazz and blues festivals throughout Europe, such as Nimes Fair, France; North Sea Jazz Festival, the Netherlands; Pistoia Blues Festival, Italy; and, most famously, at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, playing to audiences estimated up to 60,000 in one performance."
Steve Strongman: "Strongmans impressive resume includes stints opening for guitar legends such as Johnny Winter, B.B. King and Buddy Guy. The performers breakthrough 2012 release A Natural Fact was hailed as a standout, earning Maple Blues Awards for Recording, Songwriter, and Guitarist Of The Year as well as a 2013 Juno Award for Blues Recording Of The Year. In 2014 he was thrice-nominated at the Maple Blues Awards (Guitar Player, Electric Act, and Entertainer of the Year) and in 2015 received a second Juno nod for Blues Album of the Year (for Let Me Prove It To You). More recently, his latest album No Time Like Now has been nominated at the 2019 Juno awards for Blues Album of the Year."
