In the Blues Brothers, right after they make the Illinois Nazis dive off of a bridge, they enter a neighborhood with a black man singing.

Who is that singer? Is it anyone famous? I feel stupid for even having to ask.

Hmm, I don't think so. It's a bunch of guys playing in the street.

Are you talking about the scene before they enter the restaurant?


Yep. Before the Aretha Franklin part.

And Zoot Allures, that's the song! Thanks for the help.

It's the only clip of a song in the movie that was actually recorded live on set in maxwell street as opposed to playback as is usual in movies, pretty badass

A thread about the Blues Brothers band or movie(s) cannot be over as both are far to great to be bound be such pathetic aspects as time.
Let me bestow upon you a great quote from the 1980 Blues Brothers Movie.
Elwood: It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.
Jake: Hit it.

Gozd in gora poj,
silen ženimo hrup,
uboga gmajna, le vpup, le vkup,
le vkup, le vkup z menoj,
staro pravdo v mrak tulimo,
da se pretulimo skozi to zimo

Reminds me of the times with my band being dropped off at a gig by my dad and him shouting through to the guy 'we're the good old boys!'

Jesus H. Tapdancing Christ, I would love to witness the whole thing.

John Lee Hooker singing Boom Boom I think?

One of my favourite films
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'
