Jake and Elwood

My wife and I took a short trip this past week.

These guys were waiting for us at the airport.

 
Nice guys - they even got up and did some singing and dancing.



Do you know Jake and Elwood's last name?  They were brothers you know.  

Hopefully, I will get some pics posted soon from our short trip.

yes it's so simple you might miss the answer. I had forgotten that was the characters last name. I just thought the 'blues' referred to their music. great movie with some local ties for me.

Blues Brothers are real? And their surname is Blue?

Cute! I am trying to figure out what airport and where you went. Did you go see Elvis?

lisleman, I left a thank you note for you in my post Terima Kasih. It was way overdue.

The Blues Brothers first movie is one of my all-time faves - I must have watched their rendition of "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love" a thousand times ...

Theyre real characters! lol -- I think they were based on Sam and Dave (?).

You had me going for a few seconds there. I always thought they were "not real brothers" but a brilliant invention. Wiki agrees, but is it right?

It's a great Chicago movie because of all the Chicago scenes. I was checking out more on the movie and refreshed my memory of all the special cameo shots of famous people.

Just the other I watched a very informative show about Stax records who brought us Sam & Dave. The 'Soul Man' would be the only connection I see to this movie.

thanks for getting me to do a little more research on this movie. I did read that Dan Aykroyd was influenced by Sam & Dave but the movie plot goes in some wild directions. It would be like saying 'Forrest Gump' was based on some real person.
