"Muscle Shoals" Sunday October 13th, Shattuck Cinemas" @ 7:00pm FREE TICKETS


FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama was the unlikely breeding ground for a ton of hits in the 1960s and '70s, by big names both black and white: Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, Jimmy Cliff, local singer Percy Sledge ("When a Man Loves a Woman"), Gregg Allman, Lynryd Skynyrd, The Rolling Stones and many more. Some of the most important and resonant songs of all time were recorded there, including "I'll Take You There," "Brown Sugar," "Mustang Sally," "Tell Mama," "Kodachrome" and "Freebird." FAME founder Rick Hall, who achieved much in his driven life, overcoming staggering tragedies, is responsible for creating the "Muscle Shoals sound." He brought black and white together in Alabama's cauldron of racial hostility to create music for the generations. Crammed with generous musical clips and fascinating anecdotes, 

Muscle Shoals

 is a crowd-pleasing feast of music. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Bono, Clarence Carter, Etta James, Alicia Keys, Paul Simon, Steve Winwood and others bear witness to Muscle Shoals' magnetism and mystery, and why it remains influential today.



We will meet for the film at 7:00pm, so we can say hello and find good seats. After the film, we'll go for something to eat and/or drink nearby. If you need to get in touch or can't find the group, please call me on my mobile: 510.499.7806.

    We both really enjoyed the film. Loved the the visual as well as the auditory experience. I had no idea this great music came from a particular source and to see how the music was created so spontaneously was a treat. Please thank whoever it was that bought the tickets for us, Sky.

    Thank you, Sky, for the tickets and for organizing this meetup. I LOVED the documentary! If there's a soundtrack, I am definitely buying it. I also really like Shattuck Cinemas and will try to make more of your meetups. LOL, I didn't realize until you pointed it out that it's been almost 2 years since I attended an event. See you soon, and thanks again!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
