Classics Du Jour


Critically-Acclaimed Blues Brothers Revue To Continue Tour in Spring 2014

blues-brothers-revueThe Official Blues Brothers Revue — produced by Dan Aykroyd, Judith Belushi and original Blues Brothers musical director Paul Shaffer—recently wrapped a 31-date fall tour to critical praise.

The show has been called “…a raucous, fun-filled evening of great songs” that “maintains every ounce of the original band’s integrity” (Positively Naperville), and “a knock-out performance” (News Herald).

The tour will resume in 2014 with another 31 shows kicking off Thursday, January 16 in Idaho Falls, ID. From there, they will stop in various cities throughout Montana, Washington, Illinois, Indiana, Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Connecticut, New York, North Carolina and Florida among others before wrapping mid-April with stops throughout California. See below for full tour schedule. Look for more dates throughout the remainder of the year to be announced.

The live concert show combines the comedy and hit songs from the original 1980 hit film as well as the five iconic albums released by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. Featuring Wayne Catania as Jake and Kieron Lafferty as Elwood, The Official Blues Brothers Revue and their eight-piece intercontinental rhythm & blues revue band including erstwhile background vocals from Precious and Ebonie Taylor, the niece and grand niece, respectively, of the legendary Koko Taylor, pay homage to the humor, music and mayhem of the Blues Brothers and to Chicago’s rich musical history of blues, gospel and soul music. The show features all the Blues Brothers classics including “Soul Man,” “Rubber Biscuit,” “Sweet Home Chicago,” “Rawhide” and “Gimme Some Lovin’” among many others.
