The Stockton Performing Arts Center and The Stockton Entertainment Team will present The Official Blues Brothers Revue at the Stockton Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Sept. 28.

Show time is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are priced at $32 and may be ordered online at www.stockton.edu/pac or by calling the Box Office at (609) 652-9000. The Box Office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 90 minutes before the performance.
The characters of Jake and Elwood Blues, created by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd in 1978, were initially imagined as front men for a fictitious American blues and soul band. Since their film debut in1980, the irreverent characters have resonated with people around the world and the Blues Brothers have grown into a cultural phenomenon and musical, comedic and cinematic legend.
The Official Blues Brothers Revue, featuring Wayne Catania and Kieron Lafferty as Jake and Elwood, recreates the live concert experience, integrating the humor and songs from the original film and subsequent albums.
Produced by Judy Belushi Pisano and Dan Aykroyd, the Revue pays homage to Chicago's rich history of blues, soul music and gospel in the true spirit of the original Blues Brothers.
“Kieron and Wayne are not imitators, they live the music and embody those characters. They understand the soul of the Blues Brothers and revel in the joy in being Jake and Elwood,” said Judy Belushi Pisano.
Under the musical direction of Paul Shaffer, Jake, Elwood and the high-energy eight-piece Intercontinental Rhythm & Blues Revue Band lay down a big sound, performed with the passion and precision of the original Blues Brothers. Fun for all ages, The Official Blues Brothers Revue strikes the right balance of humor, music and mayhem.
