For those who were unaware of this little morsel of information, John Belushi (Jake Blues) was a student at UW-Whitewater from 1967-68. We have contacted some alumni from his time on campus and they remember him as a rather shy young freshman who came to some house parties that may have given rise to some of the scenes in one of his best-loved comedies, "Animal House"--the toga party comes to mind. Belushi's comic mind was his gift to the world, and "Saturday Night Live," "Animal House," and "The Blues Brothers" will stand as his legacy of humor.
Jake and Elwood Blues bring a humorous, lively show to Whitewater, crooning favorite songs with a few new twists, a few new moves, and a clean, freshly laundered suit. The boys are joined by the Bluettes, three ladies with voices that’ll knock your socks off. You'll hear: "Everybody," "Shake Ya Tail Feather," "Sweet Home Chicago," "Think," "Respect," "Gimme Some Loving," and more. So don the sunglasses, dig out that pork pie hat, and buff up those dancing shoes, because the Blues Brothers invite you to a night of the best music, moves, and comedy at Young Auditorium.
