It seems like yesterday that brothers Jake and Elwood Blues, played by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd in the hit movie "The Blues Brothers," invited the world to join them on a "mission from God." Now, 30 years later, the Blues Brothers live on in The Official Blues Brothers Revue, starring Wayne Catania as Jake and Kieron Lafferty as Elwood. The Official Blues Brothers Revue combines the comedy, music and mayhem from the original movie, as well as songs from the five albums put out by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.
