Blues Brothers Revue at the Cultural Centre Jan 28

he Blues Brothers are what can only be described as the stuff of musical, comedic and cinematic legend.

 

They have become an inextricable thread woven into the fabric of our culture and the images of Jake and Elwood are universally and instantaneously recognizable worldwide.

 

In true Blues Brothers spirit, The Official Blues Brothers Revue will be coming to over 30 cities in early 2014 including Chilliwack on Tuesday, January 28 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

The Official Blues Brothers Revue is a live concert show that 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 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.

Produced by Dan Aykroyd, Judith Belushi and original Blues Brothers musical director Paul Shaffer, The Official Blues Brothers Revue features all the Blues Brothers classics such as “Soul Man,” “Rubber Biscuit,” “Sweet Home Chicago,” “Rawhide” and “Gimme Some Lovin’” among many others. Fun for all-ages, the show has been hailed by the Chicago Sun-Times for its “infectious and unbridled energy…[that] blows the roof off” (Jeff Johnson).
