Corrected entry: Immediately upon leaving Bob's Country Bunker, Elwood and Jake encounter the Illinois state troopers that had previously stopped them. The bar was stated to be in Kokomo, Indiana.

Correction: The Illinois state troopers depicted in this film didn't care about jurisdiction when it came to apprehending Jake and Elwood; the fact that they showed up at the gig near the end of the film said to be 106 miles north of Chicago, placing it in Wisconsin, is evidence of this as well.
