As 2019 comes to a close, Raue Center is gearing up for a brand new year! The entertainment options offered by this unique treasure in Crystal Lake are exciting, just as 2020 will be. Here are 5 terrific shows coming up in January:

1. The Blooze Brothers. On January 4th, the midwest’s #1 Blues Brothers Tribute band, one of Chicagoland’s most in-demand show bands for 25 years, will bring back the music and the spirit of the original duo. “Past audiences raved about how authentic this act is to the original Ackroyd and Belushi characters,” said Tim Paul, Board President.

2. Larger Than Life. On January 11th, the one-of-a-kind Ultimate Boy Band Tribute will feature 90s-style boy band singing, dancing, and costumes. “I’m excited we’re bringing Larger Than Life to our stage,” said Miriam Naponelli, Marketing Director. “Come enjoy this fun throwback to a time when boy bands were all the rage!”
