“BBNG” stands for Blues Brothers the Next Generation. BBNG was formed in Spring 1996 for a school talent show by Kyle Turner as “Elwood Blues” (pictured above on the right) and Greg Dorfman as “Joliet Jake Blues” (pictured above, centered). BBNG was so well received at the talent show, Kyle and Greg decided to build on the act and perform at every opportunity!
Their fan base throughout the school grew quickly and carried particularly strong in close friend John D’Amico, who would sit in on practices and watch videos of the duo’s performances in awe. Since John had a knack for music, he was often looked to as a performance coach at rehearsals and shows. John, inspired by the act, picked up a harmonica and began to teach himself to play. By the end of 1997, John joined BBNG on stage and became a fully-fledged member of the band as “Brother Zee Blues” (pictured above, left), Jim Belushi’s real world counterpart.
