The Official Blues Brothers Revue (USA)

It seems like yesterday that brothers, Jake and Elwood Blues, played by John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd, invited the world to join them on a ‘mission from God’.

The hit movie The Blues Brothers was a loveable tale of redemption about the pair of paroled convicts, who set out to save the Catholic orphanage in which they grew up, from the taxation department. As the story goes, they re-formed their rhythm and blues band, The Blues Brothers, and organised a concert to raise $5,000 to pay off the debt and save the day.

But things never went according to plan for Jake and Elwood, and their story evolved into a rollicking journey of misadventure, and one of best loved movies of all time.

Now, thirty years on, the Blues Brothers’ live on in the Official Blues Brothers Revue, and Australian Blues Brothers fans are set to get a nostalgic musical fix when the pair arrives from America to begin a tour Downunder.

Judith, who is an accomplished writer, graphic designer and artist, married John Belushi in Aspen, Colorado in 1976. They remained married until John’s untimely death on March 5 1982. Judith Belushi along with Dan Ackroyd, continued to fly the Blues Brothers’ flag in John’s honor. Together, they created ‘The Blues Brothers Revival’ which was produced by Judy and Dan.

After auditioning over 200 Blues Brothers teams for the world premier of their musical, Judith, Victor and Dan came across Wayne and Kieron, who were immediately cast in the lead roles. Judy, and Dan’s Official Blues Brothers Revival ran successfully for five months in Chicago’s Centre for the Performing Arts, winning rave reviews.

Since then, 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.

Now fronting a world-class band complete with horn section the Official Blues Brothers Revue is a concert experience for the whole family. Celebrate the Blues Brothers in a show that really hits the road- a briefcase full of blues!

The Eagles Story

Over the years the line-up of the band has changed, just like the originals, and has evolved into what you see today. Featuring five of Melbourne’s most in demand and respected players and vocalists, the band has all of the ingredients needed to replicate some of the greatest vocal arrangements and complex melodies ever produced.
With such a huge catalogue of hits to choose from, the most difficult task for the band is deciding what songs to leave out, but don’t worry, from One of these Nights to Lyin Eyes to Peaceful Easy Feelin and with a brief stopover at the Hotel California along the way, the show never leaves you wondering. You will know every song and every song in turn will take you back to a time and place when life was just a little less complicated and just maybe, a whole lot more fun.
The level of commitment from The Eagles Story to deliver the type of experience that can only come when great musicians are playing great songs is beyond doubt. Filled with amazing harmonies, memorable melody lines and those incredible guitar duels that became trade mark for the band, these Melbourne masters continue to perpetuate the glory that is the music of The Eagles.
