Introduction by Peter Tobit
I have been Producing, Directing and Performing in the Production from it’s conception for some 16+ years, having my first incarnation as the character of Elwood. Then a couple of years later, due to cast changes I swapped roles and took on the character of Jake….for over 10 years! There on I have been concentrating on Producing & Directing the production…..still performing in the show with the cameos of “Fab Calloway’ and ‘The Reverend I.C. DeLight’.
Over the past 16 years there have been a number of cast members and musicians pass through the CBB family and each and everyone of them have added to the success that the Production is to date and to that end, they have my sincere thanks.
As the Production enters yet another phase on it’s journey, I would like to wish the current band members the very best of luck in carrying on the mantle of The Chicago Blues Brothers and after winning the Number one Tribute act in 2013 as voted by the agents association and a successful engagement at the Madinat Theatre in Dubai this Band is ready to take the show to new heights.
Long may it continue ….. Enjoy the show!
