The Official Blues Brothers Revue
Blues Brothers fans across Australia are rejoicing! The incomparable Official Blues Brothers Revue from America is coming to Australia and Wayne Catania and Kieron Lafferty, aka Jake and Elwood, are on a mission to deliver the most dynamic and authentic Blues Brothers show to hit our shores.
Since 2005, Judith, Dan and the John Belushi Estate, have officially sanctioned Kieron and Wayne’s own show. The Official Blues Brothers Revue combines the comedy, music and mayhem from the original movie, as well as songs from the five popular albums put out by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. It is a faithful recreation of the characters, Jake and Elwood, and a spectacular tribute to Chicago’s rich history of blues, R&B and traditional soul music, played with the same soul and conviction of the original Blues Brothers Band.
More recently, Kieron and Wayne joined creative forces with Judy Belushi and Anne Beatts (head writer, Saturday Night Live 1975-80) to write the pilot for a television show based on the continuing adventures of Jake and Elwood, aka The Blues Brothers.
But until this latest venture hits Australian shores, the Official Blues Brothers Revue is as close as you are likely to get to Jake and Elwood, and the music and magic of one of the greatest musical partnerships in the history of the silver screen.
Sanctioned by Dan Aykroyd and Judith Belushi.
