The grand opening of the Houston House Of Blues was quite the event. They had the street blocked off to traffic as spotlights lit the Houston sky. The line of invited guests circled the block, waiting to get into the event.
the evening began with a performance by Wanda King which was followed by a choral peformance by a choir based out of New Orleans. Then Deb Eybers, president of The House Of Blues came out and toasted Houston as the latest member of the House Of Blues family.
The crowd was pretty worked up and ready when The Blues Brothers hit the stage. Jim Belushi did a fine job in his role and was not a distraction in the least.
The rest of my pictures from the evening are here.
