Event Description

Tickets for standing places only. 

On Thursday 23rd June 2022, the Loop Jazz Club in Prague’s Hostivař district will once again reel in the crowds with yet another captivating concert. On this occasion, the Studio Gallery will host the famous Jeremy Winston Chorale Choir and conductor Jeremy Scott Winston, who have previously performed at the White House at the personal request of former US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle.

As part of the Prague Proms festival, the Blues Brothers in Prague concert will feature songs from the 1980 American musical comedy film, The Blues Brothers from director John Landis. The film once made over $ 115 million in movie theatres around the world, turning it into a cult classic. 
Accompanied by the Czech The Loop Jazz Orchestra, they will play Sweet Home Chicago, Gimme Some Lovin' or Who’s Making Love. Together with the Jeremy Winston Chorale choir, this promises to be a night to remember. Meanwhile it will also offer an opportunity for choir soloists - Candace Potts, LaVonte Heard and William Ramsey - to show off their musical skills through these celebrated songs.
