When the ‘Blues Brothers’ take over the stage at a honky-tonk bar in rural Indiana, they manage to win over the rowdy crowd with the theme song from ‘Rawhide.’ This classic scene from the movie will bring back great memories and laughs.
‘The Blues Brothers’ stand on a stage in a bar, wearing their fedoras and sunglasses with suits. Dan Akroyd says, “Man, I don’t know if we know any of the songs on this list.”
John Belushi tells him to relax because they’re just requests, they don’t mean anything. The guys go into their regular set. The piano player says, “Gimme some lovin’.” He counts off the band.
They start to play, and they groove nicely, but the crowd doesn’t like their song, and they immediately boo them. Dan Akroyd says, “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. We are sure glad to be here in Kokomo tonight. We’re the good old Blues Brothers-man-boys from Chicago. We sure hope you like our show. I’m Elmwood, and my brother Jake.”
They start to sing against the boos as they step side-to-side dancing. They get beer cans thrown at them, and the manager doesn’t like their music. He shuts the lights off as they continue to get booed.
‘The Blues Brothers’ converse, trying to figure out a song the people will like, and they settle on the theme song from ‘Rawhide.’ They start to sing, and the bottles stop flying.
People start waving their hands, cheering for the band, and dancing on tables. They give them a standing ovation while pounding beers on the tables and jumping for joy. The band closes the performance with the slow country hit, ‘Stand by your Man.’
