“Branson’s” Chris and Geoff Dahl, real brothers from London, Ontario, Canada mastered their craft as bluesmen in the early 90's while performing and recording with several r&b/blues/ pop recording acts including BLACK AVALON(a&m records) CASSANDRA VASIK(epic records)THE BUSHDOCTORS(a&m records), MELODY DURRANT(motown/universal) and the world famous OLD CHICAGO'S BLUES BAND(speakeasy records)!
During this time, the brothers (who both sing and play all instruments including guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and harmonica) shared the stage with some of the world\'s top r&b legends including Buddy Guy, BB King, Chicago Pete, Downchild Blues Band, Powder Blues band, The Contours, The Miracles, Martha Reeves Dutch Mason & Jeff Healy to name a few...thus gaining a wealth of on stage experience and picking up many of the *tricks of the trade* from the masters of the craft!
It was in 1994 that the real brothers first donned the costumes of Jake and Elwood Blues™
during an impromptu Halloween performance at the Old Chicago's blues festival. Following this performance the brothers never looked back and began working as a much heralded full time blues brothers™
tribute under the name of Da Blooze Bros! the Ultimate Tribute to the Blues Brothers™
This 2 hour live Blues Brothers™
show has taken the brothers all over the world performing in blues festivals, arena concerts, and with the D.N.D /U.S.O SHOWTOURS entertaining the troupes in remote locations throughout the world. They have also performed their blues brothers tribute during several extended runs with the canadian based LEGENDS ALIVE and the european based STARS IN CONCERT tribute show.
In 2002 the brothers teamed up with producer Bernhard Kurz to create a full on Blues Brothers™
Musical Comedy called I'm A Soulman! featuring the Dahl Brothers and musicians from the original Blues Brother's™
movies, plus active members of *The American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame* This show continues to perform throughout North America and Europe in theaters and music festivals.
