The Doobie Brothers are Coming to Sangamon Auditorium, but who is ELEW?
The DOOBIE BROTHERS are coming to town on Thursday, May 20, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. Terrific Friends, or those who have donated $100 or more to Sangamon Auditorium, can buy tickets NOW before they go on sale to the general public on Monday, March 15 at 10 a.m. The Doobie Brothers, after chart-topping success in the 1970s will travel, with their grooves, to Sangamon Auditorium, UIS to perform.
The opening act for the Doobies, ELEW, is somewhat shrouded in mystery. But to the hip, Eric Lewis is already known as a great innovator in music, coming up with his new mixture of jazz experimentation. Playing innovative piano at important performances, Lewis, aka ELEW should provide a good introduction to the smooth grooves of the Doobies. While ELEW is eclectic and experimental, he provides inspiring entertainment to a great many, not just the avant-garde.
Here are some links to YouTube videos of ELEW. Hope you enjoy!
