The Gand Band Blues Brothers Revival w/ Dion Khan and Short Stack Steve
May 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$18.00 - $55.00
Its been 45 years since Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi debuted the their much loved Chicago Blues tribute on Saturday Night Live. Enjoy this tribute to the Blues Brothers by the Gand Band featuring Dion Khan and Short Stack Steve on vocals, horn section Chris Eliot and Kenyon Carter, “Booker T” Joan, Gary “Cropper” Gand and some surprise guests!
Winner of the CV Independent’s Best Local Band for three years running, this dynamic husband and wife team bring their Chicago sound to the desert.
Veteran bluesman Gary Gand handles the six strings, driving the band, channeling a bit of Freddie King, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck rolled into one. Keyboardist Joan Gand grooves on classic Hammond B-3 style organ and blues piano with inspiration from Booker T, Ray Charles, and Otis Spann, all while her left hand is laying down the bass.
Throughout this series of 3 concerts, special guests will join the Gand Band including top notch performers from both Chicago and San Diego.
The Gand Band appears in the new film,”My Name is Lopez” – a documentary about 60s celebrity vocalist/actor Trini Lopez. Trini was a frequent guest performer until his death in 2020.
