About the Band
"Its 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, its dark, and we're wearing sunglasses... Hit it!" Everybody of a certain age remembers those immortal lines uttered by John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd as Jake and Elwood Blues in the 1980 all-time hit film The Blues Brothers.
We are extremely proud to be one of the few Blues Brothers tribute acts in the country to pay homage to the film by faithfully reproducing all-time classics such as Everybody Needs Somebody, Soul Man, Gimme' Some Lovin', Shake a Tail Feather and Rawhide complete with a full horn section, driving rhythm section and backing singers.
In addition to the blues and soul anthems you'd expect, throw in songs from The Commitments and Aretha Franklin such as Think, Respect and In the Midnight Hour, include floor-filler hits from our fabulous party section such as Dancing in the Street, I'm a Believer and Sweet Home Alabama and The Blues Others' fast-paced set is guaranteed to get any audience up and out of their seats, dancing and singing in no time.
Established back in early 2008, The Blues Others have quickly become recognised as the South West's No.1 Blues Brothers tribute band. Ever since we first started re-creating that iconic blues sound, we have always strived to provide not only high quality musical entertainment, but a truly memorable all-round experience for both our clients and their guests.
Over the years we have been lucky enough to perform to thousands of people in some prestigious venues throughout Bath, Bristol, the South West and beyond, at a range of functions including weddings, parties, corporate and charity events. A large number of bookings we receive are through recommendations, both through previous clients and venues that we have performed in. Should you be looking to book The Blues Others to perform at your event or function, we would be more than happy to provide past client and/or agency references to give you an idea of what we’re like to work with. A number of our performances are open to the public, so be sure to 'like' us on Facebook for regular updates.
The Blues Others come with all our own equipment and have a completely flexible setup; we can perform in an intimate venue to fifty guests or outside to thousands. We work closely with experienced lighting and sound designers to ensure we always meet your requirements.
