World Premiere of Time Brings About a Change, a Floyd Dixon Celebration

  • Mar 6, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

My wife and I are planning on attending this premiere showing of this last concert by Floyd Dixon. Anybody want to join us?

The band is headed up by Orange County's own Kid Ramos on guitar (one of my personal favorites!), joined by the best rhythm section in the business, Larry Taylor and Richard Innes, and also includes Fred Kaplan on keys (Hollywood Fats Band), and Kim Wilson (Fabulous Thunderbirds) on harp. The band supports several old time blues players such as Johnny Tucker, Henry Gray and Pinetop Perkins, and of course Floyd Dixon. This is world Class BLues, ladies & gents, World Class. It doesn't get any better than this, except at the actual concert. We're privileged to have this here in Orange County, no doubt due to it being Kid Ramos' hometown. I haven't heard anything, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was in attendance.

I've had the cd of this concert for some time, and it is a really great show. I can't wait to see this film. The theater is in Anaheim Hills, not far off the 91fwy at Imperial Hwy. The show is scheduled to start at 7:45, but they are having a "meet & greet" at 6:30, I plan on being there for that. And if fact if you want a good seat you probably need to be there for that. But really, any seat will be good, even the front row.

We need to RSVP for the event, and there may be a limit, so if you're interested don't procrastinate. That's this Wednesday, the 6th, @ 6:30 p.m.

    What a night !!! The film was a very good mix of about 75% music and 25% interviews. These three piano players were the last of the founding fathers of the electric blues. Some great stories of Muddy & the Wolf. The "meet & greet"was pretty cool. Got to meet Kid Ramos, Larry Taylor. Richard Innes, Johnny Tucker, Kim Wilson, Fred Kaplan...andthe guy who bankrolled and concieved the whole project, Big Bob Aurbach. The film was 2 hours and 15 minutes but went by so so fast. The sound was well mixed and the camera work was well shot and crystal clear. Floyd Dixon was phenomenal even though this was filmed only 56 days before his death. This was the world premier, but if you get a chance to see it once it is released don't miss it - the final chapter of the roots of the blues.

    Wow, what a great experience that was. The movie/documentary itself is really well done, with tones of great music performed by the best in the biz, interspersed with a lot of interviews of the musicians involved. I learned a lot about the old timers that I didn't know about them, I learned about them as people, their backgrounds, where they came from and how they become who they are. But the meet& greet period was really great. All of the musicians in the band were there, including Lynnwood Slim, who I didn't even know had played on a few of the songs. And minus Ki m Wilson, he didn't make it. But the room was packed with blues musicians, Junior Watson sat behind us. I was able to have a nice conversation with Kid Ramos, he's doing well and looks great, he was in great spirits. After the film ended we all stood in the lobby for awhile talking about the film and just hanging out. Jim, was really nice to talk with you and learn about your experience with Floyd. Thanks for greeting me.

    Having worked and recorded with Floyd, I have long been struck by how unfortunate it is that Floyd's music has languished - absent in music stores and largely forgotten. Kudos to Bob Auerbach, Kid Ramos and all the others responsible for putting together a very heart felt cinematic testament to the man and his art.

    OK, I'm a little surprised this didn't generate more interest, it's kind of a special event for blues fans and I think you guys are missing out. I'll RSVP for you Jim A.

    Played drums with Floyd in the 90's. I'll have to dig out my Floyd Dixon pin.

    Just to clarify, this is a film of a concert that took place back in 2006, it is not a live concert.
