The Blues Brothers - Jake and Elwood
Saturday, September 22 | 6:00 - 8:00pm
The band is still together! Jake and Elwood’s show features the “real deal” music and showmanship you love from the original guys. Their “take no prisoners” approach tributes Dan Aykroyd and the late John Belushi with production values that sets them apart. The Jake and Elwood show is true to the original movie storyline and tunes, while adding their personal touches that are sure to amuse and delight.
“Joliet Jake” (Fred Bevier) and “Elwood Blues” (Lance Haack) bought one of the cop cars used in The Blues Brothers movie, filmed in Chicago in 1980. After the untimely passing of Belushi in 1982, “Jake and Elwood” began producing short films and moved their mission forward. Thousands of performances later, “Jake and Elwood” are proud to carry on the spirit created by Belushi and Aykroyd. www.bigfunband.com/jake_elwood
