Animal House of Blues
Birth of the Blues Brothers
On OPB TV
The iconic movie “Animal House” was filmed in Eugene and Cottage Grove in 1977. While filming was underway, John Belushi would jam with local musicians on stage at the bar located in the Eugene Hotel where cast members were known to be hanging out. Belushi was inspired by the splinter group The Crayhawks, featuring Robert Cray on guitar, Eugene musician Curtis Salgado on harmonica and DK Stewart on piano, to form “The Blues Brothers.”
