    Jake had a vision. It was his, the only real one he'd ever had, and he clung to it. It had always been the blues. Even back in the Rock Island City orphanage (that sweaty kid factory) Jake and Elwood were saved by the music. Actually, saved by a gray-haired janitor everybody called Curtis. He wore sinister midnight shades, a narrow black tie and a porkpie hat that he kept pushed back on his head. Curtis wrapped his waxy brown hands around his guitar neck and played the most dangerous blues this side of Robert Johnson. The nuns scorched the brothers’ days with holy threats and Curtis rescued them by night. Down in the coolness of his basement he taught them the blues and set in motion their mission: to live the healing message of music.

    Silent Elwood never did put more than two sentences together, but all those lost words burned from his Special 20 blues harp. And Joliet tore that voice from some hidden darkness, twisting his chubby body, snarling at the heavens, a born sinner. They used the basement because it was secret and because the echo gave them a nice dirty sound: Howlin’ Wolf and Little Walker, slapping like a bad dream around the chilly room. And then one night, Jake brought in a gleaming E string he said came from Elmore James’ guitar. He held it tight and as it glowed in the bulb light, Jake sliced Elwood’s middle finger and then his own. Now the solo boys with soul in their blood were brothers. Jake and Elwood Blues … the Blues Brothers.

  • Hey Bartender - The Blues Brothers 1978

    3:47

    This started, as you may know, as merely a bit to warm up the audience before Saturday Night Live went on live in 1978. The band was an instant hit and took on a life of its own,almost. The Blues Brothers line up you see here was SNL's band, except for the addition of Tom Scott and was packed with some of the best jazz. rock, soul and blues players anywhere. Case in point: Steve Cropper and Duck Dunn were members of Booker T. and The MG's, the house band for Stax Records in the 1960's, which meant when you heard Wilson Picket and Sam and Dave, you heard Cropper and Dunn...plus Otis Redding at the Monterey Pop Festival, Rufus Thomas, and The MG's had hits themselves.

    The group's first album Briefcase of Blues sold well and so the band became a serious endeavor, opening for Steve Martin at the best outdoor facility in LA as far as I'm concerned. Universal put a roof on the place in the early 80's to pack more rides or whatever on the lot space and last year it closed for good to make way for a Harry Potter fun park of some sort.

    Dan Aykroyd (Elwood} who went on to star in a bunch of good comedy films kept faith with his love of blues and performers in general by opening and co-owning the House of Blues in at least Boston and Los Angeles.

    Sadly, other than Animal House the following year plus the Blues Brothers film and Neighbors with Aykroyd, this would be about it for John Belushi (Jake) who less than four years after this performance was found dead of an overdose at the Chateau Marmont Hotel on the Sunset Strip about 5 minutes by limo from the Universal stage.

  • The Blues Brothers - Funky Nassau.mp4

    4:03

    In addition to recognized soul and R&B stars James Brown, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, and Aretha Franklin, the members of The Blues Brothers band are notable for their musical accomplishments as well. Steve Cropper and Donald Dunn are architects of the Stax Records sound and were half of Booker T. & the M.G.'s - it is Cropper's guitar heard at the start of the Sam & Dave song Soul Man. Horn players Lou Marini, Tom Malone, and Alan Rubin had all played in Blood, Sweat & Tears and the Saturday Night Live band. Drummer Willie Hall had played in The Bar-Kays and backed Isaac Hayes. Matt Murphy is a veteran blues guitarist. Blues performers were featured in the cast as well, with John Lee Hooker backed by harmonica player Big Walter Horton and pianist Pinetop Perkins, playing Boom Boom on Maxwell Street.
    As the band developed at Saturday Night Live, pianist Paul Shaffer was part of the act and was cast in the film. However, due to contractual obligations with SNL, he was unable to participate. So actor-musician Murphy Dunne (whose father, George Dunne, was the Cook County Board President) was hired to take his role.[4] Shaffer later did appear in Blues Brothers 2000

    FUNKY NASSAU debuted on the Billboard 100 chart #94, Peaked #15, and stayed on for 14 Weeks They released an album entitled Funky Nassau in 1971 on Alston Records (a subsidiary of Atlantic Records), and the track Funky Nassau - Part I became a hit single in the U.S., peaking at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and #7 on the Billboard Black Singles chart. The same track reached #31 in the UK Singles Chart in March 1974.


    The Beginning of the End was a group from The Bahamas that consisted of three brothers, Raphael, Leroy & Frank Munnings and a fourth member on bass Fred Henfield. Their only hit Funky Nassau on Billboard's Hot 100 was a lyrical ode to their home city. From its junkanoo beat to its island brass parts mixed with American funk, its description of mini-skirts, maxi-skirts and Afro hairdos,the song extolled the virtues of the group's Bahamian base.
    A surprise hit, it reached the top 15 on both the pop and R&B charts. It was a success for Henry Stone during his days at Atlantic Records, and the money he earned helped him start up TK Records in Miami shortly thereafter.
    Funky Nassau 40th. Anniversary Celebrated in Nassau Bahamas October 2011 at a concert for the victims of hurricane Irene hosted by GEMS FM. Raphael Munnings of the musical group Beginning of the End introduces Raphael Munnings II first time on stage together a Historic Event. Much thanks to group Visage for their help and support.

    Blues Brothers 2000
    Main article: Blues Brothers 2000
    With Landis again directing, the sequel to The Blues Brothers was made in 1998. It fared considerably worse than its predecessor with fans and critics, though it is more ambitious in terms of musical performances by the band and has a more extensive roster of guest artists than the first film. The story picks up 18 years later with Elwood being released from prison, and learning that his brother, Jake Blues, has died. He is once again prevailed upon to save some orphans, and with a 10-year-old boy named Buster Blues (J. Evan Bonifant) in tow, Elwood again sets about the task of reuniting his band. He recruits some new singers, Mighty Mack (John Goodman) and Cab (Joe Morton), a policeman who was Curtis' son. All the original band members are found, as well as some performers from the first film, including Aretha Franklin and James Brown. There are dozens of other guest performers, including Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Junior Wells, Lonnie Brooks, Eddie Floyd, Wilson Pickett, Isaac Hayes, Sam Moore, Taj Mahal and Jonny Lang, Blues Traveler, as well as an all-star supergroup led by B. B. King called the Louisiana Gator Boys. On the run from the police, Russian mafia and a racist militia, the band eventually ends up in Louisiana, where they enter a battle of the bands overseen by a voodoo practitioner named Queen Moussette (Erykah Badu). During a song by the Blues Brothers (a Caribbean number called Funky Nassau), a character played by Paul Shaffer asks to cut in on keyboards, which Murph allows. This marks the first time in a film that the Blues Brothers play with their original keyboardist.
    Dan Aykroyd (Elwood Blues), J. Evan Bonifant (Buster), John Goodman (Mighty Mack McTeer) and Joe Morton (Cabel) and cameos by B. B. King, James Brown, Sam Moore, Junior Wells, Lonnie Brooks, Willie Hall, Matt Murphy, Aretha Franklin, Donald Dunn, Steve Cropper, Tom Malone, Jonny Lang, Wilson Pickett, Steve Lawrence and Erykah Badu.

    Jake had a vision. It was his, the only real one he'd ever had, and he clung to it. It had always been the blues. Even back in the Rock Island City orphanage (that sweaty kid factory) Jake and Elwood were saved by the music. Actually, saved by a gray-haired janitor everybody called Curtis. He wore sinister midnight shades, a narrow black tie and a porkpie hat that he kept pushed back on his head. Curtis wrapped his waxy brown hands around his guitar neck and played the most dangerous blues this side of Robert Johnson. The nuns scorched the brothers’ days with holy threats and Curtis rescued them by night. Down in the coolness of his basement he taught them the blues and set in motion their mission: to live the healing message of music.

    Silent Elwood never did put more than two sentences together, but all those lost words burned from his Special 20 blues harp. And Joliet tore that voice from some hidden darkness, twisting his chubby body, snarling at the heavens, a born sinner. They used the basement because it was secret and because the echo gave them a nice dirty sound: Howlin’ Wolf and Little Walker, slapping like a bad dream around the chilly room. And then one night, Jake brought in a gleaming E string he said came from Elmore James’ guitar. He held it tight and as it glowed in the bulb light, Jake sliced Elwood’s middle finger and then his own. Now the solo boys with soul in their blood were brothers. Jake and Elwood Blues … the Blues Brothers.

    The Blues Brothers est le nom d'un groupe de blues composé des comédiens Dan Aykroyd et John Belushi et de quelques-uns des plus grands musiciens de la musique soul. C'est également le titre d'un film sorti en 1980, racontant l'histoire fictive de ce groupe.


    John Belushi (alias le chanteur Jake Blues) et Dan Aykroyd (alias le joueur d'harmonica Elwood Blues)1, tous les deux membres de l'équipe originale de l'émission de télévision Saturday Night Live (SNL) de la chaîne NBC, créent The Blues Brothers et leurs identités alternatives au début de 1976 pour chauffer le public du SNL.

    Les Blues Brothers font leur première apparition live dans SNL, avec Belushi et Aykroyd portant leurs costumes d'abeilles, qu'ils portaient normalement pour le sketch « Killer Bees », jouant « I'm a King Bee » de Slim Harpo. Dans les semaines suivant cette apparition, The Blues Brothers deviennent un ajout populaire au show et commencent à apparaître de façon semi-régulière. L'aspect humoristique repose en partie sur l'image de deux hommes habillés de costumes noirs ayant l'air de tueurs à gages mafieux, qui soudain explosent en chansons et danses énergiques.

    Jake et Elwood sont appuyés par des gens de qualité, comme le guitariste Steve Cropper et le bassiste Donald « Duck » Dunn, tous deux issus du groupe Booker T. & the M.G.'s, ainsi que Matt « Guitar » Murphy.

    Les Blues Brothers enregistrent leur premier album, Briefcase Full of Blues, en 1978 lors de la première partie du comédien Steve Martin à Los Angeles. L'album devient disque de platine, incluant les titres « Soul Man » et « Rubber Biscuit » qui figurent tous les deux dans le Top 40.

    En 1980, le film The Blues Brothers, réalisé par John Landis, sort sur les écrans de cinéma, avec les apparitions d'Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, John Lee Hooker, Carrie Fisher, Frank Oz, Steven Spielberg, John Candy, Joe Walsh, Pinetop Perkins, Chaka Khan et Paul Reubens. Il se déroule à Chicago.

    Les Blues Brothers partent également en tournée la même année pour promouvoir le film. Jake et Elwood sortent leur troisième album, Made in America, contenant le titre « Who's Making Love » qui figure dans le Top 40.

    Le 5 mars 1982, Belushi, devenu cocaïnomane, meurt à Hollywood d'une overdose de speedball.

    En 1988, Cropper, Dunn, Murphy et d'autres reforment le groupe pour une tournée mondiale. The Blues Brothers sortent un nouvel album en 1992 intitulé Red White and Blues, avec comme invité Elwood Blues. Aykroyd lance sa franchise House of Blues, une chaîne internationale de clubs de blues. Sous l'identité d'Elwood, il anime la « House of Blues Radio Hour ».

    Un deuxième film a vu le jour en 1998, Blues Brothers 2000, avec John Goodman pour accompagner Aykroyd en tant que deuxième frère Blues.

    Le groupe tourne toujours, ils sont passés en France à Bonneville (74) le 20 juillet 2013, le concert a été diffusé en live sur Arte Live Web.

    The Blues Brothers (or, more formally, The Blues Brothers' Show Band and Revue) are an American blues and soul revivalist band founded in 1978 by comedy actors Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi as part of a musical sketch on Saturday Night Live. Belushi and Aykroyd, respectively in character as lead vocalist Joliet Jake Blues and harmonica player/backing vocalist Elwood Blues, fronted the band, which was composed of well-known and respected musicians. The Blues Brothers first appeared on Saturday Night Live on January 17, 1976.
    The band made its second appearance as the musical guest on the April 22, 1978, episode of Saturday Night Live. They would make their third and last appearance on November 18, 1978.
    The band began to take on a life beyond the confines of the television screen, releasing an album, Briefcase Full of Blues, in 1978, and then having a Hollywood film, The Blues Brothers, created around its characters in 1980.
    After the death of Belushi in 1982, the Blues Brothers have 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 to the film, Blues Brothers 2000. They make regular appearances at musical festivals worldwide.
    On August 31, 2011, it was announced that Dan Aykroyd and Judith Belushi Pisano were pitching a new Blues Brothers TV series to primetime networks.
