There was a live show from The Original Blues Brothers Band at Flower Power at Pacha last Monday, all part of Pacha’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

The group of top musicians included two of the original members.

Steve Cropper on guitar – guitarist in the Stax Records house band and Booker T and the MG’s amongst others.

Also Lou Marini on sax – Blood, Sweat & Tears, Saturday Night Live Band and more.

Plus they had the full band including a brass section and 3 singers that filled the stage.

Opening with Booker T and the MG’s ‘Green Onions’ they played hit after hit of blues and soul classics, including ‘Peter Gunn’ and ‘Soul Man’.

They ended their hour-long set with an encore of ‘Everybody Needs Somebody to Love’.

They were everything you expected them to be! A very tight band of talented musicians with entertaining front men who delivered a great and varied set of classic tunes.
