The Bluesday Brothers

Thanks to Saturday Night Live and the comedy genius of both Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi, my awareness of the blues increased with the release of the movie “The Blues Brothers” in 1980. While Jake and Elwood were on a mission from God to save the orphanage where they were raised, Belushi and Aykroyd were on a mission to bring their love of the blues to a wider audience while making one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen.

Here’s one of my favorite scenes from the movie, with Ray Charles and the Blues Brothers Band jamming to Shake Your Tailfeather.
