The Official Blues Brothers Revue, presented by Dan Aykroyd, Judy Belushi and Musical Director Paul Shaffer, combines the comedy and hits from the original Blues Brothers movie and pays homage to Chicago’s rich history of blues, gospel, and soul music. Hear all of The Blues Brothers classics such as “Soul Man”, “Rubber Biscuit”, “Sweet Home Chicago”, “Rawhide” and “Gimme Some Lovin’” by Jake, Elwood and the band who hit the right balance of humor, music and mayhem in this upbeat and uplifting, concert performance that is fun for all ages.
Wayne Catania as “Jake” is an established and respected musician, actor, and creative writer with a career spanning four decades. In the late 1970’s, Wayne’s resemblance to the late, great John Belushi opened the door to showcasing his own formidable acting and musical talents onstage and onscreen. Joining ACTRA as a character actor, he was cast in numerous feature films, television shows, and international advertising campaigns. Wayne’s charismatic and animated physical style were instrumental in forming a persona that now complimented his achievements on the live music stage. All of this has culminated in the opportunity to be cast as Jake Blues in the Classic Blues Brothers Stage Show—a part that Wayne is very specifically qualified for and passionate about and which is, in reality, the pinnacle of his life’s work. Over the past fifteen years, Wayne Catania has been the face and personality of the immortal Jake Blues, touring the continental US and Canada with both Official Blues Brothers Revue. Wayne has recently worked with Kieron, Judy Belushi Pisano, and Anne Beatts (Saturday Night Live, Square Pegs) to write the pilot for a TV show based on the further adventures of Jake & Elwood Blues.
Kieron Lafferty as “Elwood Blues” began a career as a musician, playing in the Toronto blues/rock circuit where he gained a solid reputation for his soulful vocals and melodic harmonica lines. Originally from Toronto, Canada, Kieron Lafferty was influenced by legends like Sam & Dave, Credence Clearwater Revival, and The Doors who played at his fathers night club.
As an actor Kieron has had roles in a number of films including The Stem, by Alan Royal, and Synchronicity, a rockumentary by Bob Connolly. Venturing into musical theatre in 1998, Kieron joined the cast of the award winning Las Vegas show ‘Legends in Concert’ as Elwood Blues. The Blues Brothers act evolved beyond the Las Vegas show rooms and together with his stage partner Wayne Catania (Jake) they starred in the Blues Brothers Revival, a musical written by Victor Pisano and staged in Chicago in 2004. Since that time, their Blues Brothers act has toured extensively across the US, Canada and Australia, and they are currently touring in The Official Blues Brothers Revue produced by Judy Belushi Pisano and Dan Aykroyd, with Musical Director Paul Shaffer. In addition to his stage work, Kieron also puts his extremely versatile vocal ability to work in commercials, narration and animation.
Currently, Kieron, Judy Belushi Pisano, Anne Beatts (Saturday Night Live, Square Pegs) and Wayne Catania have just finished writing the pilot for an action/comedy/musical TV show based on the further adventures of Jake & Elwood Blues.
