Get out that rubber biscuit, turn on your Soul Man, and shake a tailfeather! The Original Blues Brothers Band has put together the ultimate rhythm and blues review. Enjoy an evening at the Alys Stephens Center, 1200 10th Ave. South, with original members handpicked by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd including Steve Cropper of Booker T. and the MG’s fame and former Saturday Night Live band members Alan “Mr. Fabulous” Rubin and “Blue Lou” Marini. Expect to hear such hits as “Soul Man,” “Knock On Wood,” “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love” and “Sweet Home Chicago.” And while frontman Eddie Floyd wasn’t in the first movie, he did appear in “Blues Brothers 2000.” And he’s an Alabama native having been born in Montgomery. Now, if you have never seen “The Blues Brothers,” the movie inspired by Belushi and Aykroys’ SNL skit, do yourself a favor and rent it or turn into TV Land Friday (Oct. 5) at 9 p.m. or noon Saturday (Oct. 6).

Cost: $25-45/students $10
