The Blues Brothers Biography

The Blues Brothers, also known as The Blues Brothers' Show Band and Revue, were founded in 1978 by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. Initially a Saturday Night Live musical sketch, John and Dan's love of the blues inspired them to take the concept one step further. John Belushi was born in Chicago Booking Agent & Management" href=""> Chicago and had his first break in 1971, when he joined a comedy troupe in his hometown. Eventually, he was cast in National Lampoon's Lemmings, playing off-Broadway, with Chevy Chase and Christopher Guest, which would lead to his Saturday Night Live connection.

Dan Aykroyd was born in Canada, and worked in a variety of nightclubs in the country before gaining fame on Saturday Night Live, where he was both a writer and performer from 1975 to 1979.

Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi became close friends right away, and it was Aykroyd who sparked Belushi's interest in blues. The common interest that developed would become the impetus for The Blues Brothers, which would become a regular Saturday Night Live skit.

Belushi took on the role of "Joliet," the lead vocalist and Aykroyd transformed into Elwood Blues, the harmonica player and back-up vocalist for the band. Their assembly of talented musicians to join them in forming what would become The Blues Brothers was in part aided by Paul Shaffer, pulling from the talents of the Saturday Night Live band. Lou Marini on sax, Steve Cropper and Matt Murphy on guitar, Tom Malone on trombone, Donald Dunn on bass, and Alan Rubin on trumpet eventually rounded out the band.

Briefcase Full of Blues, the Blues Brothers first album, was released in 1978, and that same year the band performed as the special musical guest on Saturday Night Live. The film The Blues Brothers followed in 1980, and the band appeared to have taken on a life of its own, with its own strong following beyond the Saturday Night Live audience alone.

Then, in 1982, John Belushi died suddenly of an accidental drug overdose, and the future of the band seemed in question. But the Blues Brothers has survived, utilizing guest singers and rotating band members, and even reformed in 1998 for a world tour. The tour was followed by Blues Brothers 2000, a sequel to the original film.

That year, to help promote the film, Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi's brother Jim Belushi Booking Agent & Management" href=""> Jim Belushi appeared at the halftime show for Super Bowl XXXI, along with James Brown, John Goodman, and ZZ Top. The musical The Blues Brothers Revival followed in 2004, premiering in Chicago Booking Agent & Management" href=""> Chicago, and featuring a storyline where Elwood attempts to rescue Jake from limbo/purgatory.

In 2011, Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi's widow, Judith Belushi Pisano, began work on a pitch for a new Blues Brothers television series.
