Three Good Men

Three Good MenFriday, May 25 • 6:30-8:30 pm
In 2010 the THREE GOOD MEN made their first appearances on the local scene. The group had originally done acoustic show sets a decade earlier with Jim Conley in the band, and always has had a fondness to keep a version going. And now the timing seemed right, and it has taken off again.

Blooze Brothers

Friday, May 25 • 9:00-11:00 pm
For over a quarter of a century (yes, really), the Blooze Brothers has been one of Chicagoland’s most in-demand show bands. We not only honor the music made by the original Blues Brothers in movies, TV, and recordings, but the spirit in which they played – from Dan Aykroyd’s love of traditional blues and soul to John Belushi’s love of classic rock. Like Aykroyd and Belushi, we fuse those great musical traditions into a stage show that energizes and delights hundreds of thousands of music fans across the greater Chicago area and beyond every year.

We’ve played for major corporations like Microsoft and Kraft, major venues like Soldier Field and the House of Blues, plus hundreds of festivals, theaters, weddings, backyard barbecues, and everything in between. The band was also honored to represent the State of Illinois and perform at a Presidential Inauguration in Washington, DC.

With a combination of two high-energy frontmen, a dynamic female lead singer, some of Chicago’s top musicians, and our 1974 Dodge Monaco Bloozemobile replica, the Blooze Brothers provide a musical experience that can’t be beat!
