On an historic night in August 1978, backed by one of the hardest, leanest, meanest bands ever assembled by man, Jake and Elwood Blues sauntered onstage at the Universal Amphitheater in LA and proceeded to blow the audience out of their seats with “Soul Man”, “Rubber Biscuit”, “Sweet Home Chicago”, “Rawhide”, “Peter Gunn”, “Gimme Some Lovin” and more. Over the years, many have taken the stage behind dark sunglasses, skinny ties, and black fedoras to pay homage to the legacy of Jake and Elwood, but only a select few belong amongst the official pantheon of Blues Brothers – genuine, bona fide members of the family, carriers of the flame.

THE OFFICIAL BLUES BROTHERSTM REVUE is the duo sanctioned by Dan Aykroyd and Judith Belushi to don the official hat and sunglasses and walk in the footsteps of the legendary Jake and Elwood Blues. Performers Wayne Catania and Kieron Lafferty capture the infectious humor and unbridled spirit of the Blues Brothers like no one since John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd walked the stage. Backed by a powerhouse band, they’ll give you a show to remember, packed with classic hits from the Blues Brothers catalog.

Sheila Martin, CEO, Dunn Center for the Performing Arts, Rocky Mount, NC exclaims, “This show was off the hook! Everyone had a great time from 8-to-88 years old.” Tom Dunphy, The Coast Star, NJ adds, “The most dangerous combination since Nitro and Glycerin.” Bonnie Stevenson, The Petrolia Topic, Ontario, adds, “The Show’s non-stop, high-energy sense and barely-restrained mischief infected the sold-out audience.” And, Eric Ferguson: WTMX The Mix concludes, “Great energy & music. This IS Chicago. Even audience members with no rhythm are dancing. ”
