Original Blues Brothers Band at Minglewood Hall 

Donald "Duck" Dunn, who played bass for Booker T. & the MGs and on so many of the classic Stax recordings, died last May at the age of 70 while touring Tokyo. Soon after the demise of Stax, Dunn joined MGs bandmate Steve Cropper in the Blues Brothers Band, backing Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi in the hit film and on a best-selling album. This week, remaining members of that band, led by Cropper and saxophone player Lou Marini, perform in Memphis as a tribute to Dunn and as a benefit for the Stax Museum of American Soul Music. The Original Blues Brothers Band plays Minglewood Hall on Sunday, March 3rd. Showtime is 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. There are also tables for eight available for $400. See staxmuseum.com for more information.
