Culled straight from the Illinois State County Municipal Offender Data System (SCMODS), these are Jake and Elwood's most dangerous, most wanted, and most talented fellow travelers. To this day, thick as thieves. Which some of them still are. Take a scroll through this rogue's gallery to see what they're up to.

  • 34 years ago, on March 5, 1982, we lost actor, bluesman, comedian, superstar --and my brother -- John Belushi. Recently, our family has taken over this site, and I am proud and pleased to be its webmaster. It seems an appropriate time to take on this task; the years have given perspective and we are grateful for the work and memories John left behind. And so I look forward to helping create a "new" As my sister-in-law, Judy said, "We will not be just the facts; we'll be unabashedly the heart. You might say it's a love letter to John."

    “This show was off the hook! Everyone had a great time from 8-to-88 years old “ Sheila Martin, CEO, Dunn Center for the Performing Arts, Rocky Mount, NC

    Dear Blues Brothers [Revue], I don’t expect to get a response, but that’s okay, that’s not what I’m looking for. I just have to say to you, as their manager, and to them as performers, [how] impressed I was by their performance at West Haven Savin Rock Festival. Never have I been more entertained at a concert. To put it simply, for the first few minutes my brother and I thought, “WOW, they look so much like Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi.” However, by the end we thought, “No, that’s Jake and Elwood Blues.” They played up the crowd, allowed kids to get into the action, and captured everything that we think of when we watch the Blues Brothers. They put on an amazing performance, and I am so glad we waited through the rain and muck to see them! It was definitely worth our time...and we plan on seeing them again as soon as we can. Sincerely, Randy McGaffin

  • House of Blues House of Blues More than your average music club, the House of Blues was founded in 1992. Born out of a dream to keep America's beloved roots music rocking and rambling along, the Blues Brothers teamed with Isaac Tigrett (original co-founder of Hard Rock Café) to create an umbrella for the music and culture of the uniquely American experience. It's since grown to include thirteen of the finest performance venues in America, from Boston to Orlando to Hollywood. Also a proud purveyor of folk art, delta-inspired cuisine, and the diversity and brotherhood of world culture, the club also sponsors a non-profit foundation that works to teach students about American culture and history through the combined arts. Not bad for a couple kids who cut their teeth in a Rock Island orphanage and the Illinois penal system. Go »

  • Matt 'Guitar' Murphy Matt 'Guitar' Murphy Matt Murphy was born in Sunflower, Mississippi On 27th December,1929 He was already a legend among serious guitarists by the 1960s, famed for the incredibly fast and intricate blues riffs that would soon change rock and roll. While white rock and rollers were still playing the slow melodic riffs of "Love One Another" or the slow fuzzy riffs of "Wild Thing," a few (like Eric Clapton, Rick Derringer and Jeff Beck) were listening to the flying fingers of BB King and Matt Murphy and trying to emulate them.
    Murphy did not have a band of his own until 1982, but played with many famous bands. Among them (more or less chronologically):
    Howlin' Wolf, Little Junior Parker, Ike Turner, Memphis Slim, James Cotton,
    Otis Rush, Etta James, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Chuck Berry, Joe Louis Walker,
    Shaboo All-Stars and of course The Blues Brothers.
