There have been many imitators, but there is only one duo in North America sanctioned by Dan Aykroyd and Judith Belushi to don the official hat and sunglasses and walk in the legendary footsteps of Jake and Elwood Blues. We chatted Kieron Lafferty who takes the role of Elwood in the production that hits Lizotte’s on Sunday May 10.
Originally from Toronto, Canada, Kieron Lafferty was influenced by the great acts that played at his father’s nightclub, The Electric Circus. Legends like Sam & Dave, Credence Clearwater Revival, and The Doors were the wellspring of his youth. Following the footsteps of his mentors, he began a career as a musician, playing in the Toronto blues/rock circuit where he gained a solid reputation for his soulful vocals and melodic harmonica lines.
WHAT: The Official Blues Brothers Revue
WHEN: Sunday May 10.
