We’re so glad to see so many of you lovely people here tonight. And we would especially like to welcome all the representatives of Illinois’s law enforcement community that have chosen to join us here in the Palace Hotel Ballroom at this time. We certainly hope you all enjoy the show!

Aretha Franklin’s amazing scene in the Blues Brother’s movie, 1980.
I don’t remember it being so damn fast!
Also, whatever you think of the blues brothers as a concept, this movie contains some absolutely fantastic musical numbers by cab calloway, ray charles, johm lee hooker, (and yes, the blues brothers too). Also it contains Carrie Fisher firing a rocket launcher at Dan Aykroyd, and a bunch of nazis being chased into a pond.

The Lady of Shalott

She left the web, she left the loom,
She made three paces thro’ the room,
She saw the water-lily bloom,
She saw the helmet and the plume,
She look’d down to Camelot.
Out flew the web and floated wide :
The mirror crack’d from side to side ;
“The curse is come upon me,” cried
The Lady of Shalott.
