Jim Belushi & The Sacred Hearts to Bring Heavy Blues and a Whole Lot of Soul to The Orleans Showroom October 4-5
Comedian, actor and blues musician Jim Belushi along with blues band The Sacred Hearts will bring laughs and soulful hits to the Orleans Showroom October 4 and 5. 

Jim Belushi is known worldwide for making people laugh as a regular on “Saturday Night Live,” his long-running comedy series “According to Jim” and his many film appearances. In addition to his film and TV career, Belushi’s music career blossomed in 1995 when he joined forces with House of Blues regulars, The Sacred Hearts. Soon after, friend Dan Aykroyd asked Belushi to join him as part of the Blues Brothers. To get ready to play with the Blues Brothers, Belushi would crash rehearsals for The Sacred Hearts. He had so much fun performing with them, they eventually merged professionally and have been performing as Jim Belushi and The Sacred Hearts.

Belushi and The Sacred Hearts have played for many notable figures including Al Gore, former President Bill Clinton and former Governor of California Gray Davis. The band frequently headlines shows at the House of Blues venues, benefits and hundreds of corporate events.

The band’s first CD, “36 x 22 x 36,” was released in 1998 and delivers a Memphis rhythm & blues sound seasoned with a lot of soul. Additionally, the “According to Jim Soundtrack” was released in 2005, containing the music by Jim Belushi & The Sacred Hearts featured in fan favorite series episodes. Much of the show’s music was written and recorded by Belushi and bandmates Johnny Rubano and Tony Braunagel, who also made regular guest appearances on “According to Jim.”

Band members include guitarist J.J. Holiday, vocalist/trumpet player Johnny Rubano, bassist Larry Lee Lerma, composer and saxophonist Joe Sublett, vocalist Julie Delgado, drummer Tony Braunagel and trumpet player Darrell Leonard.
