This awesome button up baseball jersey features embroidered graphics on both the front and the back for the Blues Brothers and the House of Blues. The House of Blues was conceived as a chain of live concert halls and restaurants loosely inspired by and themed around the fictional characters the Blues Brothers. The chain was actually co-founded by Isaac Tigrett, who also helped to establish the Hard Rock Cafe, and actor Dan Aykroyd, who portrayed Elwood Blues.

The Blues Brothers originated as a recurring musical act on the sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live. During their stint as cast members on the show, Aykroyd bonded with his co-star John Belushi over their love of music, and the two used to regularly jam together after tapings of the show. Aykroyd introduced Belushi to blues music, and it wasn't long before they were performing with local bands and developing the backstory for the Blues Brothers. The story of the two eccentric characters, "Joliet" Jake Blues and his brother Elwood, was eventually solidified in a 1980 musical comedy directed by John Landis.

Fits like a modern unisex adult over-sized large. There is a spot on near the buttons, see pics.
