Blues Brothers Soul Band (Boca Black Box- Boca Raton)

* Blues Brothers Soul Band.

Got a real good tribute act for you guys- the Blues Brothers Soul Band scheduled to play the Boca Black Box in Boca Raton on Saturday, September 25th, 2021 at 8pm.

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have seen the Blues Brothers Soul Band something like 5 times- trust me when I tell you- this band will have you “swearing” that Jake and Elwood are right in front of you- singing “Soul Man” – not to mention “Rawhide” (so I won’t)!

The Blues Brothers Soul Band is coming to Boca Black Box on a “mission from God” — to get you on your feet and having a great time. This fun, high-energy tribute to the legendary Jake and Elwood Blues (originally created by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd) features a live band playing all the soulful, feel-good hits from Ray Charles, John Lee Hooker, Aretha Franklin, James Brown and beyond. The playful tribute — complete with all the signature dance moves, shades and pork-pie hats — mixes the music and playful stage antics of the original Blues Brothers while paying homage to the country’s rich history of rhythm and blues, gospel and soul music.

In 1967, a little-known vocal group called the 5th Dimension recorded the song “Up, Up and Away” which catapulted the group to instant stardom. Countless magazine covers, world tours and several Grammys later, the 5th Dimension is recognized as one of the most prolific soul, R&B groups in musical history.

The 5th Dimension has made over 25 million in sales with 22 Top 40 hits and five No.1 songs, including “Up, Up and Away,” “Wedding Bell Blues,” “One Less Bell to Answer,” “Last Night I Didn’t Get to Sleep At All,” and the iconic “Aquarius/ Let the Sunshine In”. They have performed on the world’s most famous stages, including Radio City Music Hall alongside Frank Sinatra and the Hollywood Bowl, and delivered unforgettable television performances on the Ed Sullivan Show, Soul Train and The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. The 5th Dimension has secured its position in the Grammy Hall of Fame, with 14 gold records, six platinum records and six Grammy Awards.

In 2015, The 5th Dimension celebrated 50 years of extraordinary entertainment. Original member Florence LaRue and company continue to deliver dynamic performances that stand the test of time and captivate audiences from Las Vegas to Manila, Philippines.

While remaining true to their original, five-part harmonic sound, The 5th Dimension remains versatile, attracting audiences of all ages and nationalities. Within the last decade, The 5th Dimension has taken the stage with several prestigious symphony orchestras, entertained at the White House and performed for families at Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida, demonstrating the groups diverse appeal. The iconic group continues to sell out venues across the United States, Europe and Asia.

According to a recent review by White Plains Citizens, ”[The 5th Dimensions’] voices and harmony are stronger, more emotional and as meaningful, perhaps more meaningful than when they first became hits in the 1965-1975 era. Today’s Dimensions deliver a tight, personal show, as crisp as old top 40 Radio.”

Got a real good “mom & pop” red sauce Italian joint for you…Fiorella Italian Restaurant And Pizzeria in Lake Worth. You’re big “boys” -so no need to describe what Fiorella’s decor looks like-but unlike most of it South Florida brethren it has a small full liquor bar area.

A recent dinner outing, had Jeff Eats “trying” baked clams oreganta, plain pizza, veal parmigiana, lobster ravioli, eggplant rollatini, penne ala vodka, shrimp scampi, clams/white sauce over linguine, and I gotta tell you, Fiorella makes some real good stuff. For you new- Jeff Eats’ readers, there were 6 folks in my-party, didn’t want you to think I’m some amazing-over eater.

You guys should know by now, that Jeff Eats isn’t really into doing- food pecking orders- but I loved the shrimp scampi, clams/white sauce over linguine, lobster ravioli,-so there!

Finally, I know that some of you guys are wondering where Fiorella stacks up in the South Florida Mom & Pop Red Sauce Food Chain- let’s do it this way, if Fiorella was close- by my house, Jeff Eats would be a very steady eat in/takeout customer.

***** GG’s of New York, 5440 North State Road 7, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33319, (954) 484-0400.

For our purposes we’re gonna call GG’s of New York an “out of sight, out of mind” mom & pop Italian red sauce joint.

Jeff Eats first told you guys about GG’s way-back on July 24, 2008. The truth be told, hadn’t been back-until last night when Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and another couple did dinner! Why the hiatus- you guys got me there, just forget about the joint!

Real simple tale to tell you, GG’s is right up there with the best mom & pop red sauce joints down here in Sunny South Florida.

Let me wrap this baby up for you guys- delicious food, large portions, reasonable prices, super pleasant service- makes GG’s of New York a joint that Jeff Eats “won’t” forget about again!

***** GG’s of New York, 5440 N. State Road 7, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33319 (954) 484-0400.

You know and I know, that South Florida has more “mom and pop” Italian joints “than you can shake a stick at.” Some are good…some are lousy…some are terrific…and some are just okay.

GG’s is a red-sauce “mom and pop” Italian joint…for the purpose of this exercise, let’s rate it REAL GOOD.

Over the years, I have eaten in GG’s something like 10 times. Real good pizza, pastas, veal-meat-chicken-seafood entrees. You know the game here…garlic rolls, salad, entree with a pasta/vegetable side.

Take a look at GG’s website www.ggsofny.com for menu/pricing/details. What I especially like about this joint, is that it has a very extensive menu…it is absolutely loaded with appetizers, subs, soups, salads, pastas, pizzas, entrees and desserts…you will definitely find something to eat at GG’s.

To be perfectly honest with you, GG’s is probably as good if not better than 90% of the “mom and pop” red sauce joints that I have eaten in…and trust me, there have been a ton of them. GG’s is not close to my home…if it were, I would eat there more often.

If you live in GG’s neighborhood…this is a real good joint to know about.

GG’s is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.

The premier musical tribute to Carole King, TAPESTRY: THE CAROLE KING SONGBOOK…

“…Brilliant! With a stellar band, Suzanne brought the audience on a journey through the songbook of Carole King…featuring one of the most life-changing albums of our era.”

This show recreates the sound and vibe of a 1970’s Carole King concert experience following her legendary album, “Tapestry.” You will be transported back to the iconic image of her multi-million selling album of 1971.

Impeccable attention to detail is taken in recreating a respectful and accurate musical presentation of piano and vocals, just as they were. Suzanne’s performance will take you on a journey back to those great recordings. During the 70’s & 80’s, Carole played solo, with acoustic musicians, and a full band with horns during this period. This show is performed in any of those formats.

TAPESTRY not only presents the record-breaking, Grammy-winning album of the same name, but is a retrospective of the iconic songwriting team of Goffin and King, and her hits that continued into the 70’s. This prolific team wrote chart-topping hits for artists such as Aretha Franklin, Bobby Vee, The Beatles, James Taylor, the Drifters, Donny Osmond…and the list goes on.

You will feel the Earth Move under your feet with this show!
