Blues Brothers 40th Anniversary Celebration

The Blues Brothers were founded in 1978. John Belushi and Dan Akroyd fronted the band, respectively in character as lead vocalist “Joliet” Jake Blues and harmonica player/vocalist Elwood Blues.

The fixation in Melbourne with The Blues Brothers lead to a Friday night institution prompting hundreds of Blues Brothers fans and scores of impersonators to pile into the now defunct Valhalla theatre.

To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of The Blues Brothers legend, Melbourne’s leading Blues Brothers band, “Briefcase Full of Blues” will be performing the entire album, plus many more of Jake and Elwood’s famous songs in addition to many other great Blues and Soul classics.

Backing Jake and Elwood will be the nine piece Briefcase full of Blues showband featuring a four piece horn section and driving rhythm section. A night not to be missed.

Polish your dancing shoes, get on your best Blues Brothers outfit and come on down to join the celebrations at MEMO.
