Blues Brothers Revue at Infinity Hall


Went to Infinity Hall Hartford to see The Official Blues Brothers Revue Sunday.

It is a presentation of Dan Aykroyd, Judy Belushi and Musical Director Paul Shaffer.  The show combines the comedy and hits from the original movie and pays homage to Chicago’s rich history of blues, gospel, and soul music.  Got a chance to hear Blues Brothers classics such as “Soul Man,” “Rubber Biscuit,” “Sweet Home Chicago,” “Rawhide” and “Gimme Some Lovin’.”

Jake, Elwood and the band hit the right balance of humor, music, and education.  The audience was ready for it as people came in with Blues Brothers tees.  Like other crowds I have seen there before, they were geared up for the show.

When they did “Shout” they audience stood and threw its hands in the air.  It was fun because it was entertaining and we knew the songs.  After the show, Jake and Elwood talked with the audience and posed for photos.

At the request of the artists, my photography was limited to the first three songs.  I then got to sit back and be a fan.  I did not notice many phones being used to video the show.
