Welch, Minn. (October 22, 2018) The one and only Blues Brothers featuring Dan Aykroyd (Elwood) and Jim Belushi (Zee) backed by the internationally renowned Sacred Hearts band, will rock you into the New Year here at Treasure Island Resort & Casino on Monday, December 31.
The Blues Brothers story. November, 1978. Jake (John Belushi) and Elwood (Dan Aykroyd) Blues make their national television debut (and first paying gig) on Saturday Night Live with their breakthrough, high-energy rendition of Sam and Dave’s classic “Soul Man.” It was an overnight sensation that catapulted these two brothers from Calumet City, IL to the heights of stardom. “Soul Man” sparked a national summer tour, two platinum albums and the landmark feature film, The Blues Brothers.
Fifteen years later, after the passing of Jake, the long-lost Brother Zee finally peeled his face from the gutter to carry on the family tradition: a high-energy, authentic, rhythm-and-blues show band with a South Memphis accent and an East Texas kick. Elwood Blues returns as “the legacy” and joins Brother Zee as “the blood,” singing and dancing their way through all the greatest Blues Brothers hits: “Sweet Home Chicago,” “Messin’ with the Kid,” and, of course, “Soul Man.”
Countdown to the New Year here at Treasure Island with the Blues Brothers!
