The Blue Brothers Celebrity Lookalike Impersonators



This is a live musical show-band and review based on the Blues Brothers characters originally created by Saturday Night Live comedians Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi. Backed by an eight-piece band (with horn section), the show is an entertaining and accurate portrayal of the Blues Brothers live stage act; even in a medium-sized nightclub, audience members become part of the show. Founded in 1983, they played numerous d Razz-Ma-Tazz in June of 1985, the band became increasingly popular and in-demand. appearances at special events, including participation in numerous radio-sponsored concerts and charity benefit performances (some attended by 20,000 or more people) indicated that the general mass appeal of the Blues Brothers – and the connection they had found with audiences – were complementing each other. In many cases they are the “hit of the event” simply because of the appearance of “Jake” and “Elwood” – and the strength of the backing band’s performance. Rather than put forth a “parody” or “Blues Brothers-esque” type performance, they strive for as authentic a performance as possible. The wide appeal of the Blues Brothers characters cannot be overlooked. Since the original appearance of Belushi & Aykroyd’s characters in 1978 on two separate Saturday Night Live shows, the Blues Brothers phenomenon has been responsible for five albums (all still in print), a smash comedy motion-picture (still airing 2 to 3 times a year on several national television networks, available on videotape), a VIDEO GAME (still available on Super Nintendo), and scores of cards, posters, T-shirts and more with the images of “Jake” and “Elwood”. Tunes from the albums (such as their rendition of “Soul Man”) are in rotation on the classic rock-format radio stations; at Halloween, costume shops consistently sell out or rent out all of their black suits and black porkpie hats for Blues Brothers costumes. The appeal of the Brothers is basically irreverent I Can’t Turn You Loose Hey Bartender Messin’ With The Kid Almost Shotgun Blues Groove MeI Don’t Know Soul Man Flip Flop & Fly Gimme Some Lovin’ Shake A Tailfeather Jailhouse Rock Soul Finger Who’s Making Love Gonna Tell Yo’ MommaI Ain’t Got You From The Bottom Going Back To Miami Do You Love Me Perry Mason Theme Theme From Rawhide Treat Her Right Riot In Cell Block Fever Midnight Hour Kansas City Stormy Monday Green Onions St. James Infirmary Guilty Expressway Minnie The Moocher Devil With The Blue Dress Good Golly, Miss Molly Mercy, Mercy, Mercy Let The Good Times Roll What I Say Shout Wang Dang Doodle Last Night Tequila I’m Ready Cruisin’ For Love Shake It Baby Mustang Sally Help Me Teeny Weeny Bit Bring It On Home Everybody Sweet Home Chicago … and more
