Buy ticketsJake Blues is released from prison. He is picked up by his brother Elwood. They both decide to reunite their old blues band and become good Samaritans. The idea is to give a concert for a charity that makes them envoys on a mission from God. The proceeds will go to pay off a public debt that is drowning the orphanage where they were both raised.

The aforementioned mission is going to have fun complications that include neo-Nazis, an ex-girlfriend who loves destruction and lots of car chases. All this to the rhythm of the main blues, Jazz and Rock & Roll stars.
