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," who plays Aretha Franklin's role from the movie and does a cover of "Respect" 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. We'd be happy to see the show include Cab Calloway's Minnie the Moocher.

Touring Tips

The concert is a great pick-me-up, and the short running time keeps the energy high. Check the daily entertainment schedule for show times.

The audience stands on the street during this 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? Don't miss this little bit of magic.
