8:30p – Blues Champions
Wednesday, May 22 @ 8:30 pm - 12:30 amFree
Bluesetta was handpicked by John Belushi to sing and dance with Jake and Elwood, but never got the chance. She left Hollywood brokenhearted, and swore to Never Sing The Blues Again. Bluesetta had her Blues Epiphany in 2006 and returned to entertain with original music, some Joliet Jake tunes and a stompin’ band!
