WARRENSBURG, MO (Jan. 24, 2012) – The Performing Arts Series at the University of Central Missouri presents the Official Blues Brothers Revue at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 3, in Hendricks Hall.
Wayne Cateria and Kieron Lafferty
The rollicking blues show is officially sanctioned by Dan Aykroyd and the John Belushi estate. After auditioning more than 400 performers, Aykroyd and John Belushi’s widow, Judith, hand-picked veteran blues artists Wayne Catania and Kieron Lafferty to play Jake and Elwood Blues.
The one-of-a-kind stage show faithfully recreates the magic of the Blues Brothers, including the music, comic antics and affectionate character quirks that made blues fans out of millions of rockers in the 1970s and ‘80s.
The show boasts Blues Brothers staples like “She Caught the Katy,” “Shake A Tail Feather,” “Minnie The Moocher,” “Sweet Home Chicago,” “Messin' with the Kid,” “Rubber Biscuit,” “Soul Man,” “I Can't Turn You Loose,” and a host of other tunes from the five popular albums recorded by Belushi and Aykroyd.
A band of blues musicians and singers from the U.S. and Canada perform the music with all the soul, skill and playfulness of the original Blues Brother Band while Catania and Lafferty command center stage as Jake and Elwood.
The Official Blues Brothers Revue is produced for national tour by Springer Theatricals and is directed by Paul R. Pierce. The show is currently on a 60-city, coast-to-coast national itinerary
