"I'm a Soul Man" A tribute to the Blues Brothers
This musical comedy show "I'm a Soul Man" A Tribute to the Blues Brothers is based on the cult films "The Blues Brothers" and "Blues Brothers 2000". It offers a lot of action, humor and above all, a lot of music with all the hits from "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love", to "Soul Man" - presented by the fast-paced duo Chris and Geoff Dahl as the iconic characters Jake and Elwood. Black suits, black hats and black sunglasses - the two Canadian artists, who are visually down to the smallest detail, but musically they are in no way worse than the real music legends. In the two hour long live show, the Dahl brothers can demonstrate all their skills as gifted singers and musicians. On stage with them they have a live band and amazing dancers. The show becomes a concert at the highest level. As in the film, the show features guest appearances by legendary soul musicians such as "Aretha Franklin". Blues fans can also look forward to many more well-known scenes from the cult films. The idea to bring their own show on stage with the Dahl brothers arose as a result of the audience's positive response to their regular performancesas one of the five acts on the live show "Stars in Concert" at the Estrel Show Theatre. The two artists, who have been on international stages as "Soul Brothers" for many years, have long since become audience favourites. As producer Bernhard Kurz says: "The fans are wild with excitement about their presentation, so it was clear that they both needed their own show!".
