BLUES BROTHERS™Performed by Dan Meisner & Russ Peterson
Since 1996, Dan Meisner (from Kingston, NY) has been entertaining thousands of happy Legends In Concert guests in Las Vegas, Myrtle Beach and Atlantic City. In March 2012, Russ Peterson (from Taunton, MA) joined Dan in their engagement at Bally’s Atlantic City.
For twenty-five years Russ has be wowing New England audiences with his amazing impersonations of everyone from Ray Charles to Dean Martin. Throughout his many years as a performer, Russ has found the perfect blend of wit, wisdom and humor. Portraying Elwood is an exciting challenge for Russ. Having mastered the guitar, piano, bass, ukulele, saxophone and blues harmonica, there isn’t a musical instrument he hasn’t been able to play with confidence. His attention to detail is evident in every move he makes and Legend’s audiences have fallen in love with him.
While attending Emerson College in Boston, Dan began performing in their Comedy Workshop. He spent some time with Chicago’s Second City and in 1990 moved to Orlando FL to open Universal Studios. While in Orlando Dan was fortunate enough to perform for the original Elwood Blues, Dan Aykroyd and John’s brother Jim Belushi. Performing for the originals and their relatives was the highlight of my career. It’s the toughest audience in the world because they have only the originals to compare you to. Fortunately both Aykroyd and Belushi really enjoyed the show and signed our Bluesmobile, the highest honor they could bestow upon us.
