Aretha Franklin was a trailblazing icon and virtuosic musician whose voice cut straight to the heart of things. She was, in the words of Billy Preston, “the best f*ckin’ singer this f*cked-up country has ever produced.” An extraordinary talent deserves no less of a tribute than a full-on dance-your-ass-off party experience—a revue that harkens back to Motown’s Motortown Revue or The James Brown Show. An event! 

On November 24th, 2018, Chicago honors her departed majesty with Soul Spectacular: A Tribute to Aretha & the Classic Soul Era, featuringa star-studded line-up of the city’s best young singers, all paying tribute to the Queen and the music of her era. Sam Trump, Meagan McNeal (The Voice), Adam Ness, Daniel Kyri, Nicole Michelle Haskins, Angela Alise, and Emily Woods (Dead River Revival) are sure to keep you grooved and your Julie Nichols & The Epic Sound—a funky-as-hell rhythm section complete with costumes, horns, and back-up singers—back this rotating revue of Chicago’s best R&B singers. And when we say best, we mean best. 

After years of putting on shows with The Second City, The Kennedy Center, as well as the band he founded JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound, guitarist/director Billy Bungeroth and master musical director, improviser, and Second City alum Julie Nichols started to explore the idea of resurrecting the art of the Revue: concerts that have the thought and direction of a theatrical experience. The result is an homage, a celebration, a cathartic night of music and dancing as this group bands together to send off one of the greatest Soul singers to ever walk the Earth.

GO GET YOUR HOLIDAY ON!!!! SEE YOU THERE!!

"The star of this yuletide cabaret show is statuesque singer Meghan Murphy, who has hair the color of merlot and a big voice that can be brassy, soulful, or plaintive as the occasion merits. Performing a nicely balanced selection of show tunes, original material, and R&B, she skips the usual Perry Como crap, focusing instead on the Christmas-related experiences of city dwellers, single women, and gay men. The results are funny and heartwarming without getting cynical or schmaltzy, owing to Murphy’s considerable charisma, jolly shamelessness, and, at times, vulnerability. She’s accompanied by a three-piece band of multi-instrumentalists and Patrick Andrews, who serves as a kind of backup singer/go-go boy."
