Description And Comments

Held on the corner of the New York area across from the lagoon, The Blues Brothers Show features Jake and Elwood belting out a few of the hit songs from this classic 1980 movie musical, including Soul Man and Sweet Home Chicago. The brothers are joined on stage by a live saxophone player and "Mabel" the waitress, who belts an Aretha Franklin cover to start the show.

Blues Brothers is one of the better musical performances in the Studios. The singers have captured many of the movie's dance moves and vocal styles and the music's tempo keeps everyone's toes tapping. The concert is a great pick-me-up, and the short running time keeps the energy high. We'd be happy to see the show include Cab Calloway's Minnie the Moocher.

During the Christmas season, a special Blues Brothers Holiday Show is performed, featuring songs like “Blue Christmas” and “Run Rudolph Run,” sung around a festive tree festooned with beer cans and cigarette packs. It's even better than the regular show.

Touring Tips

Check the daily entertainment schedule for showtimes. The audience stands on the street during the 12-minute show, without cover or shade. If you arrive early, you might be able to find a seat on a stoop across the street, but why would you want to sit?
