The Blues Brothers at House of Blues, Easton, PA

The little-known but locally popular "House of Blues" in Easton, Pennsylvania was proud to recently engage the famous Blues Brothers, Jake and Elroy, for a special Matinee performance at this plush venue, located on the lovely banks of The Bushkill Creek in Easton, PA.

Long respected as a "very solid" club from the ground up (as evidenced by this photo), the Easton House of Blues has featured many fine and talented artists, but none so famous or highly-revered as Jake and Elroy - "The Blues Brothers!!"

Here, we see Jake and Elroy rehearsing their routine just before going on stage inside the club which, as you may be able to tell, was completely packed with roaring fans, all of whom were leaning to the left in excitement.

I wish you could have been there, it was a blast!

This has been a "Silly Tuesday" edition from "DJ Productions!"

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
