OriginsEdit

The Blues Brothers started out as a comedy sketch on Saturday Night Live starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as Joliet Jake and Elwood Blues. The actors eventually evolved the sketch into an actual record and the comedy movie was born. It guest starred famous R&B, soul and blues singers James Brown, Cab Calloway, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and John Lee Hooker. The film was expensive with all the script changes, car crash scenes and Belushi’s drug use, making it one of the most expensive comedies made.

PlotEdit

Recently paroled convict Jake and his brother Ellwood have a mission to raise $5,000 to rescue their orphanage from foreclosure. To achieve their money legally, they decide to put their band back together and perform a concert to raise enough money. During the whole trip, they are chased down by law enforcement officers, a mystery woman and other groups that they manage to anger during their mission.

EffectsEdit

Make the wearer(s) extremely gifted at playing music, but may cause people who hear them to spontaneously break out into choreographed song-and-dance routines. If the wearers of both hats are close together, their musical capabilities are enhanced further, along with the chance of more people dancing.

These hats are Companion Artifacts, item sets whose powers are affected by their proximity to each other. Specifically, they would fall under the sub-category of Sister Artifacts (items in these sets will have their powers amplified or subdued with close proximity to each other, depending on the context).

It is noted to release waves of energy and happiness when near Ray Charles Sunglasses or Cab Calloway’s Zoot Suit.
