It was in 1994 that the real brothers first donned the stage gear made famous by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd ,during an impromptu Halloween performance at the Old Chicago’s blues festival. Following this performance the brothers never looked back and began working as a much heralded full time R&B tribute under the name of THE SOUL BROTHERS! the Ultimate Tribute to BLUES, RYTHYM & BLUES AND SOUL !

SHOWTOURS entertaining the troupes in remote locations throughout the world. They have also performed as an impressive blues brothers tribute during several extended runs with the canadian based LEGENDS ALIVE, LEGENDS IN CONCERT USA and the european based STARS IN CONCERT tribute show.
