Blues Brothers Statues

The Blues Brothers, Jake and Elwood, sing and dance on the roof of Rich & Creamy ice cream in Joliet Illinois. Although the building doesn't look like much, the ice cream is delicious.

[Vinny Gragg, 11/11/2010]

As noted with another set of Blues Brothers statues, these figures are relatively inexpensive, can be found in many places, and are barely life-sized. We're including only this set since Joliet is an unofficial Blues Brothers heritage site.
