We're putting the band back together! This show was a blast last time and sold out early. These two musicians were both original members of The Blues Brothers film and band, and went on to have illustrious careers both on TV and with major music stars.

Saxophonist "Blue Lou" Marini worked with Steely Dan, James Taylor, Blood Sweat and Tears, and the Saturday Night Live Band. He's a gifted Jazz saxophonist as well.

His good friend Tom "Bones" Malone helped write the music for the original Blues Brothers skit on Saturday Night Live. The trombonist and multi-instrumentalist played with the SNL Band and David Letterman's Late Show band for many years, as well as BS&W, Frank Zappa, James Brown, Tony Bennett, Woody Herman, and Stevie Wonder.
