Rockfords Favorite Cover Band, The Fabulous Janes, christened a new stage at Elixur Night Club April 15. The band was the first to perform on Elixurs new stage, which is located at the rear of the night club as opposed to the left side of the building. The Chicago-area Fabulous Janes continue to draw good crowds in the Rockford area. Elixur was about two-thirds full April 15. The group, which covers everything from Prince to Elvis Presley to Outkast, also knows how to get the crowd involved in the show, as is evident from the photo above. Next up at Elixur is The Great White with special guests Agnus Jackson and Jaws of Life Friday, May 6. Great White was involved in the deadly fire at a Rhode Island night club in 2003. The group continues to tour and donates a portion of its proceeds to families of those who lost loved ones in the Rhode Island blaze. Elixur does not allow pyrotechnics such as those that contributed to the 2003 fire in Rhode Island. Tickets and info: Elixur Night Club, 3780 E. State St., 227-0000 or www.elixur.com.
