“The Blues Brothers. At The House of Blues. In Las Vegas. MJ Unpacked. To raise money for the Last Prisoner Project. Come on!” said Jim Belushi, who was bestowed his role in the Blues Brothers in honor of his late brother John Belushi. “It’s our combined efforts that will lead to the release of all non-violent cannabis prisoners.”

Dan Aykroyd is back as Elwood Blues, joined by Jim Belushi as Zee Blues. Together, Elwood and Zee bring the magic of the legendary Blues Brothers to life in an electrifying live show backed by The Sacred Hearts band — Las Vegas musical icon Jerry Lopez will be joining the group on stage along with other special guests TBA. It’s an evening of singing and dancing to hits from the official Blues Brothers canon like “Soul Man” and “Sweet Home Chicago” plus classic tunes from the vast catalog of great American roots music.

“For me and I think many others, the Blues Brothers evoke the brash exuberance and fun and joy of our earliest experiences with cannabis,” said Steve DeAngelo, founder of Last Prisoner Project.The Blues Brothers have always told it the way they see it, and walked whatever they talked — so it’s an honor to stand beside them in this important cause.”

Tickets are $150.00 each and can be purchased through MJ Unpacked registration. Including additional opportunities to donate onsite, all net proceeds from this benefit go to the Last Prisoner Project in support of their efforts to ensure every last victimless cannabis prisoner walks free.

“As our event creates the opportunity for this high-impact executive level audience to gather, it’s both an honor and an obligation for us to support the hero work of the Last Prisoner Project,” said George Jage, CEO of Jage Media. “It is a collective responsibility of everyone in our industry to reverse the injustices of the war on drugs.”
