Reviewers and fans continually rave about these guys. “Professional, funny, non-stop energy, big hearts, good guys, excellent musicians (harmonica, drums, bass guitar, vocals), great music”
Geoff and Chris Dahl, originally of London, Ontario, Canada will be performing their “I’m A Soulman Show” in Ixtapa on January 20 at Villas Paraiso Hotel and Restaurant and In Zihuatanejo on January 21 at Madana Restaurant and Bar.
Two nights only. Two different can’t-miss nights. As a special support to our fundraising for Street Animal Rescue, big animal lovers themselves, they have agreed to present two distinct shows with different music each night. Love these guys! Big hearts truly!
Plus we’ve packaged them with three other great rock and blues and r&b acts, plus jams and collaborations by all performers including Geoff and Chris. Charlie Jacobson from Red Deer, Alberta, Canada with Kristell Rodriguez and America Hernandez of Morelia, Mexico performing with him, The Oralia Band, and The Steely Band with Karen Melendez. Both Oralia and Steely Band are from Morelia, Mexico as well. It all starts at 6:00 pm and there is 4.5-5 hours of live music and great fun by international-level performers just here for two nights.
Sharon Ristau of Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, and Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Mexico, who has seen them two times already, said to us earlier in December this year when we confirmed they were coming back to Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo and would in fact present two different shows with different music each night, “Best date night, best two dates nights in a row ever” “They do this show almost year-round in big theatres in Germany, she said, and they are real pros. And it’s great fun”
They love Mexico for some downtime and fun like all our other out-of-country performers plus strong animal lovers and supporters of our Street Animal Rescue cause, it’s a natural fit for them to come to Paradise, Mexico, what we call Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, to perform, have fun and support our fundraising Cause.
Part of the big “Stars In Concert Shows” in Germany, their show plays too big crowds almost year-round in the Las Vegas of Germany. A link to their Germany show “Stars in Concert” Website with videos and photos is below. Plus photos and a performance video from Germany as well.
Here’s Geoff and Chris Dahl’s Official Bio as The Soul Brothers-The Blues Brothers Tribute Show
Chris and Geoff Dahl, real brothers from London, Ontario, Canada mastered their craft as bluesmen in the early ’90s while performing and recording with several r&b/blues/pop recording acts including BLACK AVALON (A&M records) CASSANDRA VASIK (Epic records)THE BUSH DOCTORS (A&M records), MELODY CURRANT (Motown/Universal) and the world-famous OLD CHICAGO’S BLUES BAND (Speakeasy Records)!
During this time, the brothers (who both sing and play all instruments including guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, and harmonica) shared the stage with some of the world’s top r&b legends including Buddy Guy, BB King, Chicago Pete, Downchild Blues Band, Powder Blues band, The Contours, The Miracles, Martha Reeves Dutch Mason & Jeff Healy to name a few…thus gaining a wealth of on-stage experience and picking up many of the *tricks of the trade* from the masters of the craft!
It was in 1994 that the real brothers first donned the stage gear made famous by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, during an impromptu Halloween performance at the Old Chicago’s blues festival. Following this performance, the brothers never looked back and began working as a much-heralded full-time R&B tribute under the name of THE SOUL BROTHERS! the Ultimate Tribute to BLUES, RHYTHM & BLUES, AND SOUL!
This 2-hour live SOUL BROTHERS show has taken the brothers all over the world performing in blues festivals, arena concerts, and with the D.N.D/U.S.O. SHOW TOURS entertaining the troupes in remote locations throughout the world. They have also performed as an impressive blues brothers tribute during several extended runs with the Canadian-based LEGENDS ALIVE, LEGENDS IN CONCERT USA, and the European-based STARS IN CONCERT tribute show.
In 2005 the brothers teamed up with producer Bernhard Kurz to create a full-on R&B tribute show combining the 70’S magic of bluesmen Dan Aykroyd & John Belushi with the sweet soul sounds of Sam and Dave and the groove and energy of James Brown! This incredible musical comedy called I’m A Soulman! features the Dahl Brothers and musicians from the original Blues Brothers movies, plus active members of *The American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.* This show has performed throughout North America and Europe in theaters, festivals, and concert venues alike.
In 2013, the Soul Brothers, Chris with his 4-octave vocal range and Geoff with his harmonica wizardry, continue to bring the power of the blues to stages around the world and are excited to join the cast of one of the world’s greatest tribute shows, STARS IN CONCERT performing all the hits of legendary r&b recording artists The Blues Brothers, The Isley brothers, Sam and Dave, James Brown, Ray Charles and more.

Charlie creates fans and friends wherever he plays. On stage, he is the consummate showman with his lead guitar playing. He already has the Chuck Berry duckwalk down pat. His guitar and music skills are top of the line. Also a sought after lead guitar session musician, and a multi-instrumentalist, he came from a music-performing family. Learned to play and perform at an early age. It shows on stage.
He’ll be here for the Rock ‘n Blues Explosion Fest, our 2023 Big Reboot, for the Fest Weekend January 27-29, 2023. Don’t miss his Chuck Berry, Johnny B. Goode Show, and much of his own music too. Charlie and 50-60’s Rock and Rockabilly Music are a natural combination. And Blues too. His version of Muddy Water Blues is excellent.
We’re hoping his schedule might allow us to add him as well to the Shows Weekend, one week previously. Let him collaborate with Geoff and Chris Dahl, The Blues Brothers, excellent musicians in their own right, and with Marc Lopez, our Crooners performer. We’ll let you know soon.
