Dec. 31: Amato and Vinson’s Blues Brothers Tribute at Silo’s Jazz Club

Few movies about music have had such a drop-weighted cultural impact (exceptions made for Spinal Tap and The Commitments), and certainly few movies spun off from a Saturday Night Live sketch have been as successful as The Blues Brothers. Live it again, folks: the blazing Aretha scene, the good-time Cab Calloway scene, James Brown as the reverend and more when Amato and Vinson, billed as the “best Blues Brothers tribute today,” ring out the old year. There’ll be appetizers, Champagne and a whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on when the fedoras are donned on Friday, Dec. 31, at Silo’s. 530 Main St., Napa. 6pm show $30; 10pm show $75. 707.251.5833.
