Official Blues Brothers Revue Comes to The Capitol Center 11/2
They're on a mission from God. The Official Blue Brothers Revue is coming to the Capitol Center for the Arts (Concord, NH) on November 2, 2018 at 8PM. This live concert combines the comedy and musical hits from the original 1980 movie starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. The performance is sponsored in part by Bank of America.
There have been many imitators, but there is only one duo in North America sanctioned by Dan Aykroyd and Judith Belushi to don the official hat and sunglasses and walk in the legendary footsteps of Jake and Elwood Blues.
Discovered in Las Vegas, performers Wayne Catania and Kieron Lafferty capture the infectious humor and unbridled spirit of the Blues Brothers like no one since John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd walked the stage. Backed by a powerhouse band, they deliver a show to remember that is packed with classic hits from the Blues Brothers catalog, including "Soul Man," "Rubber Biscuit," "Sweet Home Chicago," "Rawhide," and "Gimme Some Lovin'."
Judy Belushi, referring to the duo as anything but an imitation of the original act said, "Kieron and Wayne are not imitators, they live the music and embody the characters. They understand the spirit of The Blues Brothers and revel in the joy of being Jake and Elwood".
