About Blues Brothers

Jake Blues and Elwood are the main characters in the film named “Blue Brothers”. They both are blood brothers in the movie. Jake’s role was played by John Belushi and Elwood’s role was played by Dan Aykroyd. They grew up and were brought up as kids at a Roman Catholic Orphanage. Later, when they grew adults that orphanage was about to close due to non-payment of $5K property tax at that time. Blues brothers decided to take the responsibility to repay the tax and they believed that they were on god’s mission to save the orphanage. They work hard in a band to give an amazing performance to earn $5K as a prize. They faced a lot of challenges along the way. Learn more about Blue Brothers here.
