Blues Harvest to perform in Chicago for Star Wars Celebration

Star Wars inspired sci-fi party band Blues Harvest are set to play at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry for a very special Star Wars Celebration event, entitled ‘A Night at Canto Bight’.

The bash has been organised by several Star Wars fan groups (501st Legion, Rebel Legion, Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club, Saber Guild, Dark Empire, Droid Builders, Galactic Academy) as part of ‘Star Wars Celebration’, the ultimate experience for Star Wars fans, and takes place on April 11th 2019.

Blues Harvest have built up a solid reputation as the go-to party band for geek events, having played their blend of Star Wars parodies and other classic movie songs in comic-cons, space centres and cantinas across the UK.  They have recently enjoyed several career highlights such as a recent performance at Disneyland Paris, and a special show with Ray Parker Jr who joined the band to perform his hit ‘Ghostbusters’.  Mark Hamill became a fan of the band in 2017 and declared one of their songs, Tatooine Sunset, as “Magnificent! The lyrics, performance and John Williams’ theme fade-out: PERFECTION.”

This band of space misfits is fronted by comic book writer and illustrator Nick Brokenshire (Star Wars Adventures / IDW / 2000AD), and their set will feature appearances from friends of the band (including fellow Star Wars inspired singer Darth Elvis) and stars from the Star Wars franchise.

The band say “We feel honoured to have been invited to play at this incredible event and absolutely can’t wait to entertain a room full of rebels, imperials, bounty hunters and scoundrels alike!”
