Memo couldn’t let the 40th anniversary of the all-time classic Blues Brothers movie pass without a celebration. Making up for a lost 2020, Memo are excited to present a belated 40th anniversary screening of the 1980 classic followed by a cracking set from Melbourne’s own ‘Briefcase Full Of Blues” 13 piece Blues Brothers Big Band. Come along in your Blues Brothers costumes and shake that tailfeather! Prizes for the best dressed Blues Brothers and Sisters will be judged by the band. Orange whip and dry white toast at bar prices!

Forty-one years ago (to the day) a film was released and a cult started that changed soul & blues music forever…. Along with John Belushi & Dan Aykroyd, James Brown, Cab Calloway, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, and John Lee Hooker, brought to the screen an all singing and dancing classic.

MEMO will be celebrating the 40+41 year anniversary by screening the film followed by a cracking set by ‘Briefcase Full of Blues’ 11 piece Big Band. The best dressed will win a prize to be judged by Jake & Elwood.
