Welcome to the home of the UK's Ultimate Blues Brothers Tribute Band!

 

The All New Blues and Soul Revue aim to be the finest Blues Brothers Tribute Show in the UK.

'JOLIET' JAKE - As portrayed by DAVE WIGGINS

 

Dave is the founder member of THE ALL NEW BLUES AND SOUL REVUE. He formed the band in 2002, and since then has taken the show from strength to strength, performing over 1000 shows across the UK, Europe and even into Africa and The Middle East. Dave is a music teacher, who teaches part-time in a Special School in his home town of Bedford, UK.

 

As of September 2016, however, Dave will become the student once again as he begins a 3-year degree course in Performing Arts, at The University of Bedfordshire.

 

With a natural stage presence, and as he is also a bassist and guitarist, performing live is where he feels most at home. He has also recently begun work on a new stage production, a 'one-man tribute to Pink Floyd' - fittingly entitled 'Comfortably One', where Dave works as designer, technician, vocalist and lead guitarist.

 

John Belushi's character 'Jake' is really brought to life by Dave, who also adds a little touch of his own character to the role.

ELWOOD - As portrayed by CHRISTOPHER RJ PARKER

 

Chris Parker joined THE ALL NEW BLUES AND SOUL REVUE late in 2015, and has made a huge impact already! A qualified teacher of drama, with a degree in Musical Theatre, Chris was a natural addition to the show from the outset.

 

At the tender age of just 24, Chris has also brought a new energy to the Revue, which gives it a whole new lease of life for 2016.

 

Bearing more than a passing resemblance to e certain My Aykroyd too, Chris has mastered the moves and the mannerisms that make 'Elwood' unique!

 

 

Chris is actually the fourth Elwood that the show has employed since it's foundation in 2002.

 

Original member Colin Smith was with the show for the first seven years, and first 'retired' in 2009 to spend more time at home. His replacement, James Proctor, was with the show for the following four years, before leaving to pursue his teaching career, and he was then followed by Stuart Eckersley who deputised the position for six months in the early part of 2014. Colin returned later that same year to cover Elwood's responsibilities until a permanent suitable replacement could be found.

 

The photos and videos on this website show all four of these guys in action across a long time span!

 

This took longer than expected, as they are not easy shoes to fill....... but Chris arrived in October 2015, and the rest, as they say, is history.

 

Watch out for the crazy knee-to-floor dance moves, and if you're an unsuspecting member of the audience...... Well, just watch out, if Elwood is about!

 

Possibly the best Blues Brothers tribute band in the world.
