THREE: Blues Brothers Banned
A TRIBUTE act to one of Hollywood's cult music movies is to perform just a few stops from Harrow on the Metropolitan line.
Blues Brothers Banned will showcase rhythm and blues, swing, ska, and even rap at Rickmansworth's Watersmeet Theatre, a taster of their gig at the upcoming Edinburgh Festival.
Owen, who plays Elwood Blues, said: "The original Blues Brothers played covers in order to pay homage and re-invent the classic music of the past. Our aim is the same, but the decade is different.
"We mix different styles together, so we do all the Blues Brothers favourites and work in anything from our own reggae-take on the Scrubs theme tune to Rapper's Delight from The Sugarhill Gang and a ska-punk version of Ghostbusters.
What? Blues Brothers Banned

What? The Rollin Stoned
Where? Tropic at Ruislip, Ruislip Social Club
When? Friday, 8pm
Cost? £12, or £10 if booked in advance
FIVE: Two live bands at The Water's Edge
TWO Hillingdon bands - one seasoned, the other a true 'newbie - will play live together in Cowley.
The Price were formed in 1985 and for eight years were one of the leading combos on the borough small band scene.
Since splitting in 1993 there have been two retrospective 'best of' albums, and The Price have occasionally got back together for reunion gigs.
Colour Me Wednesday, on the other hand, are relative newcomers.
