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!

Chicago supergroup Soul Spectacular honors her departed majesty with Soul Spectacular: A Tribute to Aretha & the Classic Soul Era. On March 25th, 2019, in honor of what would have been Aretha’s 77th Birthday. they’ll be be bringing the party to Untitled with a 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, Meghan Murphy, Elisa Latrice, Tammi Savoy and the Spectaculars—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.

Soul Spectacular: 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 look and feel of a theatrical experience.
