Blues Brothers Lyrics Follow

The Blues Brothers are an American blues and soul revivalist band which was founded in 1978 by comedy actors Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi as part of a musical sketch on Saturday Night Live. Belushi and Aykroyd fronted the band, respectively in character as lead vocalist "Joliet" Jake Blues and harmonica player/vocalist Elwood Blues. The band was composed of well-known and respected musicians, and debuted as the musical guest on the April 22, 1978, episode of Saturday Night Live, opening the show performing "Soul Man", and later "Hey Bartender".
The band took on a life beyond the confines of television, releasing an album, Briefcase Full of Blues, in November of 1978, opening for the Grateful Dead on December 31st, 1978 at the closing of Winterland Arena in San Francisco, and spawning a Hollywood comedy film in 1980, The Blues Brothers.
After the death of Belushi in 1982, the Blues Brothers continued to perform with a rotation of guest singers and other band members. The band reformed in 1988 for a world tour and again in 1998 for a sequel film, Blues Brothers 2000.
