Hollywood actors Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi have teamed up - to form their very own band.

Funnyman Belushi will spend his summer (03) hiatus from his hit TV show ACCORDING TO JIM making sweet music with Aykroyd.

He says, "I have a new band with Dan Aykroyd called HAVE LOVE WILL TRAVEL REVUE. Our CD, BIG MEN, BIG MUSIC, is coming out 20 May (03).

"Our sound is a real fusion of Louisiana blues and Texas rock."

Belushi, whose band moniker is FULL DADDY DIAMOND, and Aykroyd, who takes on the stage persona of BIG DADDY SWEET, recently played a surprise show at Las Vegas' House Of Blues.

Belushi boasts, "We absolutely killed. We did it just to gauge how well we might do on the road, and it went over better than we thought."

He adds, "This summer, I plan to be playing a show somewhere between Alaska and Louisiana. That is, when I'm not relaxing with my family in Martha's Vineyard."
