Jake and Elwood Blues are getting the band back together on Saturday, April 9, for the Official Blues Brothers Revue at the Honeywell Center Ford Theater.
 
The Blues Brothers, iconically known from the 1980s film classic and appearances on “Saturday Night Live,” will be returning in concert with the official seal of approval from Dan Aykroyd and Judy Belushi, widow of the late John Belushi.
 
Belushi told The Paper of Wabash County she partnered with Aykroyd to produce the concert “to show that these characters live outside of the two actors who first performed it.”
