Mount Baker Theatre's Brings Official Blues Brothers Revue with Cast Picked by Dan Akroyd and Paul ShafferBellingham, WA—Dan Aykroyd and Judith Belushi Pisano announce that The Official Blues Brothers Revue will appear at Mount Baker Theatre in Bellingham on September 22, 2018. Singer-actors playing Elwood and Jake will be backed by the Intercontinental Rhythm and Blues Band for a concert experience playing music made famous by the movie. The lead duo were hand-picked by Aykroyd, Belushi Pisano, and original Blues Brothers Musical Director, Paul Shaffer to carry the torch first lit by the iconic duo of Aykroyd and John Belushi on Saturday Night Live in 1978, and later immortalized in the eponymous blockbuster 1980 film directed by John Landis.
Judy Belushi 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”. Backed by the all-star Intercontinental Rhythm & Blues Band, The Official Blues Brothers Revue is a multimedia interactive experience showcasing their undeniable talent in songs that comprise a virtual encyclopedia of rock, blues and soul. Audiences of all ages have been on their feet as the duo delivers classics such as “Soul Man,”, “Gimme Some Lovin,” , “Sweet Home Chicago” and “Shout.”
