Can you imagine Jim Belushi and Dan Aykroyd at an NBAA Convention? Well, you don’t have to imagine it. The duo will appear at the NBAA Charities Gala as The Blues Brothers tonight from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Rosen Centre Hotel. In addition to dinner, attendees will get the chance to see The Blues Brothers serve up some of their classic hits, including “Sweet Home Chicago,” “Messin’ with the Kid,” and, of course, “Soul Man.”

The gala also offers a chance to support NBAA Charities, a fund that provides assistance to humanitarian efforts, including Angel Flight America, the Corporate Angel Network, the Project Orbis flying eye hospital and Veterans AirLift Command. A silent auction starts at 6 p.m. and a live auction will be held during the gala by Tom “Spanky” Assiter, of Assiter & Associates, who also emcees the Experimental Aircraft Association Young Eagles Gala Auction and the Barrett-Jackson Classic Auto Auction.
