Blues Brothers Party Ideas
Sep 7th, 2005, 4:18pm
 
Hello,

I'm looking for ideas for a "Blues Brothers" party.

This year is the 20th anniversary of the movie.

I do plan to have a Jake & Elwood performers there but need ideas on decorations, invitations, party favors, etc.

So far I will get BB hats as favors.  Any other suggestions.

Please help.

I love your theme.

How about dark glasses and harmonicas as favors.
Decorate with jazz and blue's things.
For the invite use a picture of the Blue's Brothers.


How many people are you having ?
If not to many then you could get a bunch of mens white dress shirts and put them on the chair and put a tie around the collar.

I will try and think of some more.

Thanks for replying.  

We're going to have a really fun group of between 125 - 150 ppl.

I'm going to try to find some BB cutouts for the walls.  Maybe even a standing cutout/poster for photo ops.

Great ideas about the chairs.

We're also having a Blues Brothers themed party for about 100.  
We're having our two boys dressed as cops to "frisk" guests as they come to the "club" They will hand out the sunglasses and "sell tickets" The tickets are donation only- not mandatory to  come to the party.  The money collected is going toward an orphanage in Mexico.  It is our "Mission from God" Our boys later will be dressed as Elwood and Jake- they are the perfect sizes and will be doing "Soul Man". We're setting up a stage area for them to preform which will be the photo op place for our guests- probably some painted background- maybe jazz musicians- still working on that and the other decorations.  Looking for more ideas myself!  eileen

Number 1 thing to remember is the entertainment. if you are doing a Blues Brothers theme, you want to make sure the Blues Brothers make an appearance. But, please do not think that throwing two of your employees into dark glasses and suits will suffice. You want to book a real tribute group with experience! There are several around the country who are so tack sharp impersonations that your guests will think you've actually hired Akroyd and Belushi.
