“It is hands down one of the best music documentaries ever made.” – Paul de Barros, Seattle Times

SYNOPSIS
Located alongside the Tennessee River, Muscle Shoals, Alabama is the unlikely breeding ground for some of America’s most creative and defiant music.  Under the spiritual influence of the “Singing River,” as Native Americans called it, the music of Muscle Shoals has helped create some of the most important and resonant songs of all time.  At its heart is Rick Hall who founded FAME Studios.  Overcoming crushing poverty and staggering tragedies, Hall brought black and white together in Alabama’s cauldron of racial hostility to create music for the generations. He is responsible for creating the “Muscle Shoals sound” and The Swampers, the house band at FAME that eventually left to start their own successful studio, known as Muscle Shoals Sound.  Gregg Allman, Bono, Clarence Carter, Mick Jagger, Etta James, Alicia Keys, Keith Richards, Percy Sledge and others bear witness to Muscle Shoals’ magnetism, mystery and why it remains influential today.

This presentation is a collaborative presentation by BSF and JCAHC with financial support from JCRD. In addition, the Buffalo Bulletin donated local advertising space for this event.

Early Start

Getting a little earlier start this year than last. Looking at venues. Trying to find money. You know how it goes.

This year we’re emphasising collaboration and co-sponsoring. In recent years, there’s been a lot of duplication of efforts in our little community and we believe our mission can be better served at this point not by trying to go it alone but by adding our strengths to other projects when our strengths can be utilized in a mutually beneficial manner. We’ll see how it goes. I have to believe in the strength of our community to work together?

Anyway, we’ve been talking with several other existing non-profit groups and other local businesses around town to try to pull off some interesting shows this year. It means letting go of some control of the entire presentation. We hope and believe it will be worth it.

Stay tuned!

2013 February Festival Schedule is Up

We have a collection of 9 titles showing over 4 days (February 7, 8, 9 & 10). Some show once. Some show twice. Some show three times. But they’re all noteworthy films!

JCRD-Logo_smWe’re pricing tickets at $5.00 each this year because we received a micro-grant from the Johnson County Recreation District which makes it much easier for us to plan films (especially around Oscar Season).

Speaking of the Oscars. Have you seen the nominations? We’ll be showing the Live Action and Animated Shorts that have been nominated. If you look at our Full Schedule you can see if any other nominees will be showing up on our screen this winter.

You can look at titles by day (see links up there, below our banner) or by viewing the entire list sorted alphabetically. Click on a title to view more info about a title and to buy tickets. Once you buy tickets we should be able to send you a printable PDF of a voucher that you can then bring to the movie. This is beta software. A test. Let’s see how it goes, okay? If you try it out and have any questions, feel free to contact us.

Hotmail, MSN, etc Blocking eMail from Us

It would seem that Microsoft is blocking emails originating at our new host. I’ll be contacting Dreamhost.com about this and hopefully hotmail and msn users will contact their people and we can have our people talk to their people and all the people will send and receive emails. And love.
