ARETHA FRANKLIN TRIBUTE
Dinner service starts @ 4:30pm
Performance @ 7:30pm
Aretha Franklin was a trailblazing icon and virtuosic musician, whose voice cut straight to the heart of things. She was, in the words of Billy Preston, “the best f*ckin’ singer this f*cked-up country has ever produced.” An extraordinary talent deserves no less of a tribute than a full-on-dance-your-ass-off party experience—a revue that harkens back to Motown’s Motortown Revue or The James Brown Show. An event!
Chicago supergroup Soul Spectacular honors her departed majesty with Soul Spectacular: A Tribute to Aretha & the Classic Soul Era. On March 25th, 2019, in honor of what would have been Aretha’s 77th Birthday. they’ll be be bringing the party to Untitled with a star-studded line-up of the city’s best young singers, all paying tribute to the Queen and the music of her era. Sam Trump, Meghan Murphy, Elisa Latrice, and the Soul Spectaculars—a funky-as-hell rhythm section complete with costumes, horns, and back-up singers—back this rotating revue of Chicago’s best R&B singers. And when we say best, we mean BEST.
Soul Spectacular: Master musical director Julie Nichols (Second City) together with guitarist/director Billy Bungeroth (JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound), are resurrecting the art of the Revue: concerts that have the feel and direction of a theatrical experience. Put on your dancing shoes, this is one show you don’t want to miss!
