Few movies about music have had such a drop-weighted cultural impact (exceptions made for Spinal Tap
and The Commitments
), and certainly few movies spun off from a Saturday Night Live
sketch have been as successful as The Blues Brothers
. Live it again, folks: the blazing Aretha scene, the good-time Cab Calloway scene, James Brown as the reverend and more when Amato and Vinson
, billed as the “best Blues Brothers tribute today,” ring out the old year. There’ll be appetizers, Champagne and a whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on when the fedoras are donned on Friday, Dec. 31, at Silo’s. 530 Main St., Napa. 6pm show $30; 10pm show $75. 707.251.5833.
