Ray's Music Exchange

Ray's Music Exchange

"I'll throw in the black keys for free!"

Ray's Music Exchange in Calumet City, Illinois has the best electric piano in the city of Chicago.  It can be yours for the low price of $2000 bucks!  You can take it home with you and Ray will throw in the black keys for free.

The Blues Brothers has stood the test of time as it is one of the most entertaining movies filled with great music including the late great Ray Charles.  

Ray's Music Exchange includes a fully stocked showroom with guitars, amps, mics, tv's, and toasters.  Don't mind the bullet holes next to the guitar hanging on the wall - it breaks everyone's hearts when a boy that young goes bad.   Although some say the best piano in the city of Chicago has no action left in the keyboard; Ray disagreed and the patrons break out into a spirited rendition of the classic Shake A Tail Feather. 

Ray's Music Exchange from the movie is based on the still standing Shelly's Loan & Jewelry in Chicago.  In fact the faded mural is still on the side of their building.  

The building would also be a wonderful compliment to Eini's The Blues Mobile which had gathered support recently.

The build is 32x62; although it easy could be made to 32x64.  The reason for 2 studs shorter was the drawing of the mural which was done by the talented Greg Hyland.   The mural is printed on the LEGO brick and would be fun to put together during the build process!   

Thanks for taking a look and if you haven't watched The Blues Brothers - please stop reading and go Shake a Tail Feather and watch a wildly entertaining movie!
